Season 2 of Hulu's award-winning comedy Only Murders in the Building came to a close last August, tying up the loose ends that unraveled like a... sweater? Mystery?... throughout the 10 episodes. In a finale full of more twists than there are secret passageways in the walls of the Arconia, we finally know who killed Bunny, we discovered the murderer's motive, and we even got a surprise guest appearance to lead us into a new murder case for the next season.
Warning! This article contains spoilers for Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building! Read at your own risk. Things were looking up for the "Only Murders" podcast hosts when we last saw them. Charles' Brazzos acting career was picking up again as well as his love life, Mabel was finally renovating her apartment, and Oliver landed a directing gig on Broadway. But the night of his production's premiere didn't go as planned when none other than Paul Rudd seemingly died onstage, no doubt due to some foul play. That's right, the Season 2 finale introduced us to disgruntled Broadway star Ben Glenroy played by Rudd, who was apparently the newest murder victim.
Moments before Glenroy collapsed, he and Charles engaged in an unfriendly conversation in which Charles threatens, "Stay away from her," and "I know what you did." Who could they possibly be talking about? Is Mabel "her?" What is the history between them, and what causes Glenroy to collapse?
Grab a snack, break out your dips, and let's dive into what we know about Only Murders in the Building Season 3 so far.
In a surprise cameo at the end of Season 2, viewers were delighted to see Paul Rudd on Only Murders in the Building. It has since been confirmed Rudd will join the third installment as a recurring cast member.
"Paul Rudd, after making an auspicious entrance into the world of our show at the end of Season Two as Ben Glenroy, is someone we clearly want to know more about and see in our upcoming Season Three—as he is a clear source of many upcoming questions and, as ever with our show, many twists yet to come!" series co-creator John Hoffman told Variety.
Hulu gave Season 3 the greenlight in July, midway through Season 2's release schedule. That means we can count on delving into more murders and mysteries in the near future.
"Only Murders in the Building is a true crown jewel of our slate," said Craig Erwich, President, Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment. "Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament of Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena's work."
There's no set release date yet. Season 1 ran from August to October 2021, with Season 2 dropping new weekly episodes less than a year later from June to August 2022. If things keep going at this rate, with any luck we could be back solving crimes at the Arconia as early as Spring 2023.
In addition to its core murder-solving, podcasting trio, Season 3 will likely introduce more new characters. In the past, the show has had a number of cameos from celebrities like Sting, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Schumer, Cara Delevingne, and now most recently, Paul Rudd.
Despite appearing to be killed off mid-Broadway performance in the episode "I Know Who Did It," Variety confirms everyone's favorite ageless A-lister, Rudd, will be featured in Season 3.
