The Arconia is brimming with chaos, and naturally, our inner sleuth is curious about Only Murders in the Building season 3. 

Sure the second installment of the dramedy just landed on Hulu, but like any good true crime podcast host/makeshift detective, we have a lot of questions. Ready to get to the bottom of the Upper West Side shenanigans with us?

'Only Murders in the Building' season 3

At the time of publication, Hulu has yet to confirm whether or not Mabel, Charles and Oliver will be back for a third go-around, but we suspect that we haven't heard the last of the unexpected (yet iconic) trio.

The crime stoppers we never saw coming have found their groove, and it's only fair (according to fans' standards) to keep the fun going after these eight new episodes. Plus, there are a few loose ends in season 2 that lead us to believe more is on the way. 

First thing's first: Bunny Folger. Mabel finds the ornery, quintessential New Yorker hanging on for dear life after she's been stabbed with knitting needles. But are left with SO many questions about the murder of the Arconia board president, and we would really like to see whether or not her successor, new mom Nina, is able to fill her shoes. 

Speaking of questions, what's going on with Alice (Cara Delevingne) and Mabel? From an outsider looking in, it seems the artist is hiding something from her new love interest. What was Alice's reason for reaching out on Instagram and forging a connection in the first place?

While we're on the topic of Miss Mabel—Bloody Mabel as she's affectionately known on social feeds and subways—is this girl ever going to be able to clear her name? Is she the only we truly need to be wary about?

Plus there are new and returning faces that have made themselves comfy in the luxury apartment building, but their anecdotes haven't quite played out. If our evidence is correct, all signs point to the show moving forward. 

"They pitched me the idea and it led into a whole conversation about my actual obsession with true crime," Gomez told Deadline (opens in new tab) about landing the role. "I had just come back from CrimeCon when I had the call and it just felt like it was something I really wanted to do."

Considering we're equally obsessed, we are keeping our fingers crossed that we've not heard the last of the podcasters. Naturally, as soon as we know more, we'll be sure to fill you in. 

In the meantime, if you want to relive some of the most unbelievable stories in history, have a look at the best true crime on Netflix (actual true crimes) and explore shows about cults on Netflix and Hulu that will leave you in complete, utter shock.
