Melissa McCarthy is among the robust list of A-list stars that have joined the fourth season cast of "Only Murders in the Building."

Disney unveiled the news in a premiere date announcement teaser May 14, promising that Season Four — which will be available to stream on Hulu Aug. 27 — will be "it's starriest season yet."

Aside from previously announced guest stars, including Eva Longoria, Eugene Levy and Kumail Nanjiani, the new season will also feature Zach Galifianakis, Molly Shannon, Richard Kind, Jane Lynch and more.

As teased in the fourth season trailer, the main cast, Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, are hitting the road to Hollywood to meet with a studio exec who is interested in making their true crime podcast into a film.

Oscar winner Meryl Streep, who guest-starred as aspiring stage star Loretta Durkin in Season Three, will also reprise her role in Season Four.

What is 'Only Murders in the Building' about?

“Only Murders in the Building” is a murder-mystery comedy that follows a trio of amateur sleuths — played by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez — who try to solve murder mysteries that are connected to their exclusive apartment building, the Arconia, located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. (Yes, the Arconia really exists, sort of.)

As each season’s murder mystery story changes, so do the show’s characters and cast members.

The Season Four cast includes: Martin, Short, Gomez, Michael Cyril Creighton and special guest stars include Streep, Randolph, Levy, Longoria, Galifianakis, Shannon, Nanjiani, McCarthy, Kind, Lynch and more.

What happened in Season Three?

Spoiler alert, obviously.

Season Three ended by revealing that the mother-son duo Cliff (Wesley Taylor) and Donna (Linda Emond), who produced Oliver's musical "Death Rattle Dazzle," were responsible for the murder of Paul Rudd's character, Ben Glenroy.

The season finale also revealed that Sazz Pataki (Jane Lynch) was shot in the Arconia apartment that Charles (Martin) owns. As she lay dying on the floor, Sazz began scribbling a message in her own blood.

Season Four will presumably find Oliver, Charles and Mabel (Gomez) investigating Sazz's murder.

Hulu announced "Only Murders in the Building" was renewed for Season Four on Oct. 3, the same day as Hulu’s release of the Season Three finale.
