Get your pipe and deerstalker hat, Only Murders in the Building season 3 will premiere August 8 on Hulu. Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez are all back for another round of ‘whodunit’ in this comedy mystery drama with new cast members including Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd (who was introduced and killed in the Season 2 finale).

Unfortunately, Nathan Lane – who recently moved to the Upper West Side – will not be returning for the new season. In an April interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lane said “I’ve been doing a play on Broadway this season, so I have not been able to get there … I hope to go back at some point because I had the best time working with them and finally won an Emmy doing that show.” Lane went out with a bang winning an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series in 2022.
Jesse Williams – known for his role in Grey’s Anatomy – is set to join the case for season 3 in a recurring role, reports Deadline. Williams will play a documentarian with a particular interest in the case that Mabel Mora, Charles Haden-Savage and Oliver Putnam are working on.
It’s still a mystery if Tina Fey or Sting, Upper West Siders who’ve previously appeared on the show, will be returning.
You can stream the first two seasons of Only Murders in the Building on Hulu and Disney+.
