'Only Murders in the Building' season 2: everything you need to know

Our favorite trio is back! 'Only Murders in the Building' season 2 is almost here and it's going to be just as entertaining as the first

Only Murders In The Building -- Following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, Charles, Oliver & Mabel race to unmask her killer. However, three (unfortunate) complications ensue - the trio is publicly implicated in Bunny's homicide, they are now the subjects of a competing podcast, and they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbors who all think they committed murder.

Only Murders in the Building season 2 is nearly here and there's plenty of chaos awaiting those who want to venture over to the Arconia.

By now you've grown to love the trio we never knew we needed: Selena Gomez (Mabel), Steve Martin (Charles) and Martin Short (Oliver). The unlikely friendship that blossoms between their characters stems from wanting to know exactly who murdered Tim Kono.

We wouldn't suspect a grisly murder in a swanky Upper West Side apartment building, yet it turns out the fancy condo is filled to the brim with suspicious subjects, and no one knows exactly who to trust. Even once our three musketeers think they've cracked the case, it appears there is still plenty more to learn. 

(We won't give away too much if you're still catching up on Only Murders in the Building season 1—we understand that your to-watch lists are just as long as ours!)

When is 'Only Murders in the Building' season 2 coming out?

You'll be New York City-bound this summer: Only Murders in the Building season 2 will begin streaming on Hulu on Tuesday, June 28. 

Season one ended in fall 2021, and the series stars were quick to return to the set upon its ending. Selena Gomez took to TikTok to post a sneak peek of the first day of production on December 1, 2021. 

"Day one—back with these dads," she jokingly captioned her video. 

(That eye roll was so Mabel!)

'Only Murders in the Building' cast for season 2:

It looks like the Arconia is about to get a few new residents. News broke on December 1 that model-actress Cara Delevingne will be joining the cast as a series regular. She will take on the role of Alice, an artist who becomes involved in the condo's murder mysteries, according to Deadline (opens in new tab)

Although it's not entirely clear how she will fit in with our favorite crime-solving podcasters, we do get a quick look at her character in the upcoming trailer.

Who will be joining Delevigne? Martin Short has spilled the beans!

While discussing the production of season two, the actor casually mentioned that two of our favorite funny ladies were on set. 

"Before Christmas, [I shot scenes with] Shirley MacLaine and Amy Schumer,” he told Deadline (opens in new tab). "The quality of actor that this show is attracting makes it endlessly fun to go to work." (Amy Schumer's Life & Beth is also on the streaming service.)

Cameos in the star-studded first season included Sting, Tina Fey, Nathan Lane, Jimmy Fallon and more.

What will 'Only Murders in the Building' season 2 be about?

*ONE SLIGHT SPOILER AHEAD*

The show's frontrunners are pretty tight-lipped about the forthcoming adventure, but considering we left on a cliffhanger in the debut season, we'll assume that we're trying to set our sights on a new killer who murdered Bunny, who was found dead in Mabel's apartment. (As you might've suspected, that doesn't look too good for Mabel.) 

The show creator John Hoffman did hint that there will be something new to look forward to, and not just in terms of a mystery, but seemingly a new backstory.

"It’s got some secrets for sure and that’s another area we’re interested in exploring," Hoffman revealed to Deadline (opens in new tab). "Also, what does it mean for the real-world purposes of what’s happening with our built-in real estate terms as far as the value and who wants to live here and who doesn’t anymore? It all gets very complicated at the Arconia. You’ll learn more about its history in season 2."

We can't wait to see what turmoil awaits our wannabe sleuths next!
