Get ready, mystery lovers! The hit show Only Murders in the Building is returning for its fourth season.

Whether you’re a die-hard fan or new to the series, this season promises to bring more twists and turns we all love.

Exclusive to Hulu and Disney+, the show is fun and quirky. Honestly, who doesn’t love seeing Martin Short and Steve Martin back together again?

Though, the addition of Selena Gomez is inspired, forming the trio we didn’t know we needed.

With the first season proving to be a mega-hit, the second was quickly ordered and was just as successful, leading to the third.

The ante was well and truly upped when Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd joined the cast, so how they will top that for season four is anyone’s guess.

But before we discuss the potential plot for that, let’s have a very quick round-up of the show so far…

The Show in a Nutshell

Charles, Oliver, and Mabel all live in the Arconia apartment complex in New York and share a passion for true crime.

When fellow resident Tim Kono is murdered in their apartment building, the trio decides to solve it and start a podcast about their investigation.

The podcast becomes a bit of a hit, and as they dig deeper, they uncover secrets about their neighbours and themselves.

Their investigation takes them through a series of twists and turns until the killer is revealed.

At the end of the first season, it looks like Mabel has been framed for the murder of Bunny Folger, which forms the plot for the second season.

She didn’t do it, by the way, and just as everything looks like it’s getting back to normal, Charles’ cast member, Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd), is murdered on stage, which is the crime that needs to be solved in the third season.

In the third season, the gang found themselves navigating complicated relationships and uncovering more secrets before that cliffhanger ending, which was the death of Sazz Pataki, Charles’ stunt double, in his apartment when she was dressed like him.

So, is somebody trying to kill Charles? Probably…

What to Expect in Season 4

We don’t have to wait long to find out as Only Murders in the Building will return on August 27th 2024 on Hulu and Disney+.

Oscar winners Da’Vina Joy Randolph and Meryl Streep are back, and this time around, they will be joined by Eva Longoria, Zach Galifianakis, Kumal Nanjiani, Mellisa McCarthy, and Eugene Levy, which, by any standards, is an incredible cast.

A movie based on the trio and their podcast is underway, with Eugene Levy playing Charles, Zach Galifianakis as Oliver, and Eva Longoria as Mabel, so our favourite amateur sleuths are off to Hollywood!

How will it all play out? And more importantly…who killed Sazz Pataki??

Does It Get The Thumbs Up?

Of course, Only Murders in the Building gets a massive thumbs up. It’s an absolute banger of a show that I look forward to every week when a new season drops.

The jokes, the snark, the plot, the cast – everything about it is fabulous. However, I hope that the injection of some really famous names won’t detract from the quirkiness of the core trio of Charles, Oliver, and Mabel, which can happen when a show becomes a huge hit and all the A-listers want to hop on board!

So, if you haven’t already seen it, you can watch all three seasons on Disney+, and even if you have seen it, it’s not exactly a chore to give it another go.
