If you’re reading this, you’re a fan of Only Murders in the Building and have decided to conduct your own investigation into the events of season two. You’re in luck since the murder-mystery-podcast comedy has already been renewed for a second season by Hulu. We don’t want to wait either, but we have to. While we wait for new episodes, here’s all you need to know about Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building on Disney+.
There is no official release date yet, but co-creator John Hoffman has confirmed (via Queerty) that production will begin before the end of 2021. That implies Only Murders in the Building season two might be available on Hulu and Disney+ by mid-2022, or at the very least by the end of next year. And astute viewers may have noted, the ending scene of season one does hint to a return in the autumn.
Only Murders in the Building wouldn’t be the same without its central trio, and the season one ending is dependent on all three of them returning in season two. This means Steve Martin (Charles-Haden Savage), Martin Short (Oliver Putnam), and Selena Gomez (Mabel Mora) will all be back for the already-confirmed second season.
Tina Fey will almost certainly return as Cinda Canning, the true-crime podcaster who will turn the tables on our three in season two. Aaron Dominguez will most likely join her as Oscar, Mabel’s lover, who will surely be involved in this case in some manner. We might also expect weirder guest-star cameos, similar to Sting’s visit in season one, although one actor who might not return is Amy Ryan, because Jan should remain in jail for the duration of season two.
Because the mystery of Tim Kono’s death at the Arconia was only answered in season 1, it will not be carried over to season 2. A new probe, however, is about to commence, this time including Mabel, Charles, and Oliver. Mabel was on her way to her apartment to fetch some champagne when Charles and Oliver noticed her bloodied and kneeling over Bunny’s lifeless body. Mabel looks to have defended herself with a knitting needle, but when Charles and Oliver approach, she adds, “It’s not what you think.” As a result, we don’t know what happened there.
Cinda Canning is also seen outside the Arconia after the trio is arrested at the end of the season finale, hinting that she plans to make them the next focus of her own true-crime podcast. Because there is still so much to learn, season 2 will most likely pick up where we left off and go into what happened that night.
