Spoiler alert! The following details the ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 2 finale, ‘I Know Who Did It’.
“Only Murders in the Building” is returning for a third season with even more star power — as if its main cast of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez weren’t enough.
Tuesday, Martin shared a snap from the set with its legendary castmasters, surprise season 2 guest star Paul Rudd and a new face: Meryl Streep!
“‘Only Murders in the Building’ season 3 filming has begun! A cast to dream,” he tweeted alongside the photo.
Here’s what else we know (so far) about the third season of Hulu’s hit show.

What is Paul Rudd’s role on the show?
Rudd first appeared in the Season 2 finale of ‘Only Murders’ as Broadway star Ben Glenroy.
In the latest episode, viewers are picked up a year after Charles (Martin), Oliver (Short) and Mabel (Gomez) solve the murder of apartment manager Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell), who died at the end of season one.
Charles and Mabel attend the premiere of Oliver’s Broadway show with Charles and Ben, a rude leading actor. As the curtain opens, Ben dies just after delivering his opening monologue. It is likely that Charles is once again a suspect in another crime.
“You must be (expletive) kidding me,” Mabel says as the episode fades to black, teasing a new mystery for season three: a murder outside the Arconia building.
Fans will likely get more information about Ben and what led up to his death next season.

What is Meryl Streep’s role?
It’s currently unclear which character Streep will play in the new season, but fans (and Gomez) are excited.
“OMG!!!! Iconic,” one fan replied.
On Tuesday, Gomez shared a TikTok video from set showcasing their newest cast member.
“Could this honestly be any better?” Gomez says. The camera pans to the cast members before Streep appears on the screen and Gomez’s face turns into fangirl excitement.
“Meet our new and old crew!” she captioned the clip. “Excuse me while I scream into a pillow.”

Hulu confirmed in July that the series would be renewed for a third season. And according to Martin and Gomez, filming has begun.
