Only Murders In The Building season two may have just been released but showrunner John Hoffman has teased some intriguing news over series three.
Mabel, (Selena Gomez) Charles, (Steve Martin) and Oliver (Martin Short) solved Tim Kono’s murder, an investigation which they recounted in their successful podcast, however after Arconia owner Bunny (Jayne Houdyshell) was found dead in Mabel’s apartment, the three are now in the frame for murder.
With the trio implicated in Bunny’s homicide, they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbours who all think they committed the crime.
While we guarantee many of you will be binging the mystery series, as the second instalment has finally dropped on Disney Plus and Hulu – co-creator John teased that fans should expect the unexpected in season three.
‘There’s so much hope for a season three that comes from all of us,’ he told Metro.co.uk.
‘Everyone involved in the show has really loved this experience.
‘And so, we are very hopeful about a season three, and as a little bit of a tease, the story lends itself at the end of our season two, so hang tight at the end of season two. So we do aim towards a new something or other leading us to season three.’

In December last year, it was revealed that model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne would be joining the series as new character Alice, who will feature as Mabel’s love interest.
Alice is ‘an art-gallery owner of her own generation who puts Mabel in touch with a side of herself she’s been somewhat neglecting since the show began.’
However, John explained that they initially wrote Cara’s role ‘separately.’
‘It’s a very New York story. If you’re splashed on the front page of a New York story, for good or bad reasons, you’re still becoming known, and that’s the balancing edge that they’re on the whole season.
‘For Mabel’s case [Selena] we touched on her desire to be an artist last year, that opening her world with a facilitator like Alice who feels aspirational to her, so that was the first beginning to Alice and how she would open up Mabel’s world.’
‘When we started thinking about casting, we thought “who was interested in the world of art, who is contemporary in the world of Selena’s?”‘ he added.
‘And then it was pretty quick to realise this is an old friendship they share, Cara and Selena, and we talked to Selena about it and she said “that would be a dream, I love her.”
Reflecting on her powerhouse performance, John explained: ‘Cara as she goes along, she’s so compelling and was a real treat onset. Just soaking it all up and just really giving something that is wholly her own.
Only Murders In The Building is available to stream on Disney Plus.
