Very good news for all the fan audience of the acclaimed original series of Hulu, Only Murders in the Buildingsince a week before the big premiere of its second season (scheduled for June 28, 2022 on Hulu and on Star+ in Latin America), The streamer released a promotional sneak peek for the new season.
The scene in the clip shows us Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, playing Charles, Oliver, and Mabel, three neighbors who are fond of true crimes, who are the main suspects in the murder of another resident of the Arconia building. The three were apprehended and released for lack of evidence, and it is now public knowledge that they are suspects. The funny thing is how offended Oliver is when he comes across a newspaper in which they talk about the arrest, with a front-page photograph of which he was cut out, “I’m involved in this too!,” he exclaims furiously.
The detective in charge of the case proceeds to explain that the three of them are persons of interest – something that Oliver is grateful for – although she cannot arrest them yet, but that may change from one moment to the next, with new evidence. She also warns them to let her do her job and not get involved.
The funny clip is found at the end of the note.
In the meantime, we tell you.
The first season of the comedy-mystery ‘whoddunit’ style series, created by Martin and John Hoffmanfocuses on Charles, Oliver and Mabel, true crime fans, whose enthusiasm is tested when a resident of the building located on the Upper West Side, where they reside, ends up dead. With the motive and killer still unknown, they will have to work together to unravel the truth: “While recording a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building that go back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell each other. Soon, the endangered trio realize a killer might be living among them as they race to unravel the mounting clues before it’s too late.
In the second season:
“It cleverly twists its whodunit structure into our main characters: after solving the murder of neighbor Tim Kono, Arconia’s trio of detectives absorb glory and fame, until Arconia’s board chairwoman Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell) is found dead, bloodied, while wearing an Only Murders sweatshirt, in Mabel’s apartment. The prime suspects are hilariously obvious..”
Our leading trio, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel, is accompanied by new additions to the cast, as in the case of Shirley MacLaine (Glee, Steel Magnolias, Elsa & Fred), Amy Schumer (Trainwreck, I Feel Pretty), y Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad, Carnival Row). The latter, she will be playing Alice, a connoisseur of the art world and owner of an art gallery, who is involved in the new mystery, in addition to being a love interest of the character in charge of Gómez.
Martin and Hoffman are executive producing alongside Short, Gomez, Jamie Babbitt, Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.
