Golden trio Selena Gomez, Martin Short and Steve Martin have returned for another series of unexpected twists and turns – and we can’t wait to see what season two of Only Murders In The Building has in store.
In a synopsis for the second chapter we know they have to investigate yet another murder, as it reads: ‘Following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, Charles, Oliver & Mabel race to unmask her killer.’
But, thanks to the trailer, we also know that our beloved trio aren’t just investigating murders: this time, they’ve been framed for one too.
The threesome is publicly implicated in Bunny’s homicide, are now the subjects of a competing podcast and they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbours who all think they committed murder.
But where is it filmed, and is it a real block?
Where is Only Murders In The Building filmed?
Only Murders in the Building is set in a fictional pre-war luxury apartment building, The Arconia, filmed in various locations in New York.
However, if you google the fancy hotel you won’t find any results because its real name is the Belnord.
And yes, it’s just as fancy in real life.
Show production designer Curt Beech explained to Architectural Digest that he drew inspiration from the city’s massive ritzy buildings.
‘The setting is based on a conglomeration of buildings where the courtyards take up an entire city block,’ he said.
‘There are not many of them left in the city and they are kind of unicorns. We were leading into this idea of a world within a world.’
In December last year, it was revealed that Cara Delevingne would have a recurring role in season two as new character Alice, Mabel’s (Selena) 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.’
Amy Schumer is also part of the latest series as a new resident of the Arconia.
Only Murders In The Building is available to stream on Disney Plus.
