You never know who you'll bump into at the Arconia. 

Amy Schumer has landed on Only Murders in the Building, and naturally, her cameo is causing plenty of buzz. Who does she play? Can we trust her? What does she know about Bunny's murder? 

If you're anxious to start Only Murders in the Building season 2, here's what you need to know about the comedienne moving in to Sting's former penthouse.

Amy Schumer on 'Only Murders in the Building'

As is the case with most interactions on the comedy series, Schumer was introduced to viewers—and Oliver (Martin Short)—while on the elevator. Though the star-studded cast has taken on many roles for this Hulu hit, Schumer plays a more exaggerated version of herself. 

Her first interaction with Oliver is brief, and no surprise, they're equally taken by each other's fame. 

"I just have to say, I really enjoyed Only Murders in the Building," she confessed. 

But she had to clarify herself when Oliver bashfully thanked her.

"No, no, no,  I mean I really enjoyed it. I was never that into murder before—podcasts, murder podcasts—until yours, but you guys just made it feel so cozy," she added. 

Cozy? Well, that's not something you hear very often. Before the two part ways, she proposes a business deal. 

"Well, I just had a thought: Would you ever consider selling me the rights to the podcast so I can turn it into an eight-to-ten episode streaming series with exclusive internet content leading to gamification," she humbly asks. 

Oliver is taken off guard. KIDDING! He's been waiting for this moment since Tim Kono's death. Now he's dying to pursue a new opportunity, even if Mabel (Selena Gomez) and Charles (Steve Martin) seem too distracted to appreciate the magnitude of this offer.

Schumer is not the only newbie in town for Only Murders in the Building: Cara Delevingne is also venturing to the Upper West Side. The model plays Alice, the head of an art collective, who takes a sudden interest and liking to Mabel's work...and Mabel. 

"For Mabel’s case we touched on her desire to be an artist last year, that opening her world with a facilitator like Alice who feels aspirational to her, so that was the first beginning to Alice and how she would open up Mabel’s world," showrunner John Hoffman told Metro (opens in new tab).

Unlike Schumer, we get much more suspicious vibes from this badass artist, even if her cool-girl vibe and chic clothes earned major points in our book. (No offense, Alice.) 

How to watch 'Only Murders in the Building'

How many episodes of Only Murders in the Building are there? Season 2 is set to premiere on Hulu on June 28. The first two episodes will be readily available, but you'll have to tune in every Tuesday for the remainder. There are eight in total. 

Expect new faces, a new mystery to unravel—what exactly happened to Bunny Folger—and plenty of new questions to arise. There's a lot happening in the Arconia, and it's unclear where the the story could possibly lead us next. 

But, as for Only Murders in the Building season 3, we have some intel.
