Only Murders in the Building returning for a second season

The hit original comedy series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez will return on Disney+ in the UK.


The first season is still airing, Tuesdays on Star on Disney+ in the UK and comes from the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman.


Only Murders in the Building is a comedic murder-mystery series for the ages, following three strangers - played by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez - who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.


When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth.


As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another.


Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.


Only Murders in the Building hails from co-creators and writers Steve Martin and John Hoffman who executive produce along with Martin Short, Selena Gomez, Jamie Babbitt, Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.


Speaking about the recommission, co-creator and executive producer John Hoffman, said "Everyone in our amazing "Building" worked with such love and expertise through extraordinary times and with incredible support from Disney, Hulu and 20th TV to create a first season that might live up to our legendary cast, our beloved New York City, and to make a show about connection."


"To feel we've connected with our audience and hit the mark enough already to have the chance to continue and to carry on our show's wild ride of mystery-comedy-empathy is too exciting for words. So I'll shut up now and just say a huge thanks to all and I can't wait for more!"
