Hulu Orders Season Three of ‘Only Murders in the Building’

Pickup Comes After Recently Opening Season Two

Just three weeks after opening season two, Hulu has announced a third season of comedy “Only Murders in the Building” with Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.

“’Only Murders in the Building’ is the true crown jewel of our slate. Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan [Fogelman], John [Hoffman], Steve, Marty and Selena’s work,” said Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich in a statement. “We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story.”

Created by Martin and Hoffman (“Grace and Frankie”), “Only Murders” follows the three leads as they both try to solve a murder in their New York apartment building and record a true-crime podcast about it. Season two finds Charles (Martin), Oliver (Short) and Mabel (Gomez) also implicated in the death of the building’s board president and the unwilling subjects of a competing podcast. The series comes from Twentieth Television.
