The season 2 premiere date for Hulu’s Only Murders In The Building has been confirmed. Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez are among the primary cast members of the comedy-mystery series produced by Steve Martin and John Hoffman.
The series follows the happenings of the Arconia, an Upper West Side apartment building where the death of a neighbor draws together three true crime fans, Mabel Mora (Gomez), Charles-Haden Savage (Martin), and Oliver Putnum (Short), to try to solve the mystery.
Season 2 of Only Murders In The Building
The first season of the show consists of ten episodes, which were released weekly between August and October of this year. The show was an immediate hit, quickly becoming the most-watched comedy premiere on Hulu. The show has also garnered plenty of great reviews, with critics praising the way it brilliantly mixes comedy and mystery while showcasing stellar performances from its main and supporting actors.
Only Murders In The Building season 2 is expected to begin filming next month, according to Elle, who attended a fan premiere with co-creator John Hoffman.
Season two, according to Hoffman, is on track after a few months of production. Working backward from the solution and muddying up the evidence, according to Hoffman, is a key aspect of creating this show, which has a fundamental mystery. The second season appears to be on pace for a 2022 release, barring any issues with the ongoing pandemic, with the screenplay in the works and the cast rehearsing.
Expanding their stories and podcast into the city
Hoffman discusses the possibility of a second season, stating that season one was mostly focused on the inside of the Acronia, but season two, and any subsequent seasons, would be focused on expanding their stories and podcast into the city.
Only Murders fans were left with many unanswered questions in the season’s last episode, “Open and Shut,” which kept the promise of the show’s premiere. The fact that Mabel was discovered with another dead body and the crew was taken out of the Arconia in handcuffs shows how much more there is to discover in the Arconia.
