The Clues We Know About ‘Only Murders’ Season 3Getty Images

Welcome, amateur sleuths, to the official murder board for Only Murders in the Building season 3. Here’s where you can come to find any information and speculation about the third season. It’s not that I want the lives of Charles, Oliver, and Mabel to be plagued with more people getting killed in their building…but also I kinda do. It’s fiction! Bring me more bloody Arconia mysteries! While we wait to find out about Only Murders in the Building season 3, here’s what we know so far.

First unsolved mystery, is there a season 3 of Only Murders?

In a surprise announcement, Hulu announced on July 11 that the series will officially come back for a third season. The series had just premiered its second season and clearly it’s been such a hit because the streamer renewed it before it finished its current run. It was also nominated for a bunch of Emmys, so again, this is really no surprise.

Who would be in Only Murders in the Building season 3?

The show wouldn’t be the show without the golden trio of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Beyond those three, who knows! It’ll depend on who’s a killer, or killed, in season 2. It’ll also depend on whether or not Amy Schumer sticks around or another celebrity moves into “Sting’s apartment” in season 3 and if Cara Delevingne’s Alice returns too. This show attracts some guest stars—season 1 had Jane Lynch and season 2 has Shirley MacLaine. Tina Fey has popped up in both seasons. Remember when Nathan Lane was in season 1? It kind of feels like anyone could move into the Arconia at this point.

And if you’ve watched the end of season 2, you could probably guess that Paul Rudd will be making some appearances in season 3 as well, considering he is the victim du jour. Hopefully, we get lots of episodes’ worth of backstory there! Series cocreator John Hoffman told Variety that Paul’s character is “someone we clearly want to know more about and see in our upcoming season 3—as he is a clear source of many upcoming questions and, as ever with our show, many twists yet to come!”

Sel also recently dropped a fun behind-the-scenes TikTok from the set celebrating the cast’s big return to the Arconia. And you won’t believe who is moving in: MERYL. STREEP.

That’s right, the Oscar winner/Tony nominee/icon of all our lives is joining the show. Her character is still a secret, but oh my god, if you needed another reason to watch, well, here you go!

And yes, she even got her own special promo that premiered at the perfect time: right before the Oscars. Still no word on who exactly she’s playing, but it looks like she’s playing an actor who’s involved in Oliver’s show. And based on the previous TikTok that Sel posted, she might be getting involved with the big investigation as to who killed Ben Glenroy. Oh, and is Paul Rudd replacing him? We’ll have to wait and see!

When would we, in theory, get Only Murders season 3?

Weirdly, that’s almost more difficult to predict than anything else. The first season aired from August to October of 2021, and the second season dropped between June and August of 2022. Presuming the show is renewed and they start writing and filming this year, season 3 could be next summer or fall or whenever they’re done and ready, really. I don’t think it would be before the end of 2022, but when exactly in 2023 is a big shrug as far as I’m concerned.

In the meantime, some new pretty spoiler-y pics just dropped, so feel free to start speculating:
