Things are buzzin' in the Arconia, and you need to know where to watch Only Murders in the Building in order to keep up. The hilarious, highly-anticipated whodunit is the talk of the town, and you won't rest easy until you figure out who's responsible. 

In an unlikely bit of casting, Selena Gomez joins the ranks alongside comedy legends Steve Martin and Martin Short for the 10-episode series. The trio channels their inner detective skills to uncover a gruesome murder that took place in their New York City apartment building. And, in typical modern-day fashion, they also start a podcast about their journey. Naturally!

But how do they know who to trust? Who's telling the truth and who's lying? (Hint: everyone!) 

And, most importantly of all, who's ready to dive in to their new favorite show? We'll give you all the details about the can't-miss series. (No spoilers, though—we promise.)



Where to watch Only Murders in the Building

The comedic murder mystery (quite the oxymoron) premiered on Hulu on August 31, 2021. It is a 10-episode project, and as of September 2, three of the episodes are currently available for streaming. 

Every episode thereafter will debut on a Tuesday, starting with the fourth episode on September 7 and the last hitting the streamer on October 5. It's not a straight-through binge, but we'll gladly wait to see what unfolds in this new fall show. 

A Hulu subscription will cost you $5.99 a month with advertisements, $11.99 a month without, or $54.99 a month for three months with live TV included. Sign up below!

Who's making Only Murders in the Building cameos?

There is no shortage of great guest stars on the 10-episode series. Tina Fey and Nathan Lane both play residents of the building and, at one point, Martin and Short's characters both suspect that Sting (yes, the rock star) is the culprit. 

"The guy from U2?" Gomez's naive millennial character asks. 

Be sure to also look out for appearances from Jackie Hoffman and Maulik Pancholy while you're at it!

Only Murders in the Building filming location

According to Untapped Cities, the popular new show was filmed entirely in New York City, specifically the Upper West Side. 

The Arconia building is actually The Belnord, an Italian Renaissance-style building located on West 86th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues.

See ya on the Upper West Side—and watch your back!
