Even though Only Murders in the Building season two just premiered, fans are already looking forward to the possibility of future seasons starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Before Hulu officially confirmed a third season, Gomez seemingly let it slip in an interviews that they'll be coming back for a third whodunit.

In June 2022, Gomez told the Hollywood Reporter about her schedule balancing acting and her music career: "I finished season two, I did my cooking show, and now I’m gonna be in the studio until season three. So basically we’re going to be just working on new music. Like I said, I couldn’t do one or the other. I actually love both"

Similarly, in a TikTok posted when they wrapped season two, Gomez toasts "to a great season two," a phrase Short echoes, to which Martin replies "to a great season three... well... next year!" Watch here:

Season two finds Charles (Martin), Oliver (Short), and Mabel (Gomez) racing to discover who killed Arconia Board President Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell)—a crime for which they are being framed. The trio is publicly implicated in Bunny's homicide, and try and clear their names before it's too late. The murder occurred in the season one finale, so there's a possibility the end of season two will set up the plot of season three.

In July 2022, Hulu confirmed that Only Murders will be back for a third season. "All of your favorite characters are going to be returning for season three!" Gomez says in a fake podcast clip posted to the show's social media.

"Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena’s work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story," Craig Erwich, the president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.

We'll update this post when more information about Only Murders in the Building season three becomes available.
