Netflix just found a new way to solve murders. On Thursday, the streamer announced a new series called Murderville starring Will Arnett.

The series, which according to Netflix "will see celebrity guests completely improv their way through an otherwise scripted murder mystery," stars Arnett as a Senior Detective Terry Seattle, Homicide Division, who will team up with a different guest star each episode.

The show's guest stars include notable names like Annie Murphy, Conan O'Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and Sharon Stone. It'll be the guest stars' job to name the killer... but how they solve the case is another story.

In addition to Arnett, other series regulars include Haneefah Wood as Chief Rhonda Jenkins-Seattle, Lilan Bowden as medical examiner Amber Kang, and Phillip Smithey as Det. Darren "Daz" Phillips.
