Only Murders In The Building Season Three is only a few weeks away! While Selena Gomez and her co-stars Martin Short and Steve Martin have been giving us some sneaky behind-the-scenes peeks on social media, the trailer for the long-awaited season has now been released, confirming suspected storylines and whispers of the release date.

So, here’s everything we know about Only Murders In The Building Season Three so far.

Is there an Only Murders In The Building Season Three trailer?

The extended trailer for the third season of Only Murders In The Building is finally here!

Have a geez below.

When is the Only Murders In The Building Season Three release date?

As reported by Variety, Steve let the release date slip during his comedy show with Martin in Florida over the weekend.

While no filming or recording was allowed for their ‘You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today!’ tour, two ticket holders said that Steve casually dropped the release date during the warmup for their 8PM Saturday show (local time).

Discussing what they’ve been up to lately and showing pictures with their Only Murders costars, Steve reportedly said, “Catch the new season on August 8.”

This was followed by Short responding, “Our show is like Steve trying to pee — it streams for 33 minutes,” but that’s neither here nor there! We have a date! August 8!

Based on Season Two’s premiere date in both Australia and the U.S., we can expect that we’ll be getting the season at the same time here in Australia.

What happens in Only Murders In The Building Season Three?

So far, all we know is that Season Three kicks off where Season Two ended: The mystery death of actor Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd) on the opening night of Charles (Steve Martin) and Oliver’s (Martin Short) play.

But according to the juicy BTS pics shared by the cast, there could be a lot of big plot twists happening this season. Selena and Steve shared snaps that showed Selena’s character Mabel in a wedding dress.

The pics sent fans into a frenzy, wondering who on earth Mabel is planning on marrying. After all, the season takes place one year after they found out who murdered Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell). Maybe she’s been seeing someone the whole time?

But thanks to the extended trailer, we now know that the dynamic trio is investigating Ben Gilroy’s murder for another podcast they’re putting together and it seems like any of Gilroy’s co-stars could be a suspect – including Ashley Park, who plays a TikTok-obsessed influencer and actor, and even Meryl Streep, who plays a theatre actor performing in the play that Charles Haden-Savage, Oliver Putnam and Ben Glenroy’s characters have created.

If the voiceover is anything to go by her character arc will involve a “surprise you never saw coming.”

I don’t know about you but nothing makes me more hyped than a frenetic string arrangement.

Before seeing Meryl in action, we discovered she’d be involved in the Emmy-award-winning series when Selena took to TikTok with her co-stars.

Have a watch below:

Who will be in Only Murders In The Building Season Three?

Epic trio Martin, Steve and Selena are all returning to helm the third season.

As for their co-stars?

As mentioned earlier, the legendary Meryl has been cast in the next season, along with hot-as-hell Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams, who played Doctor Avery on the long-running doctor series.

Deadline reported that Williams will play a documentarian who is super intrigued by the case the gang is working on.

After making a sick cameo as Broadway star Ben Glenroy in the Season 2 finale, series creator John Hoffman has confirmed that Paul will return for Season Three.

“Paul Rudd, after making an auspicious entrance into the world of our show at the end of Season 2 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!” Hoffman told Variety.

Thankfully, the extended trailer showed a few more familiar faces appearing in the new season including Ashley Park and Matthew Broderick.

Aaaannd that’s all we know so far.

We’ll be waiting for August 8 but in the meantime you can catch the first two seasons on Disney+.
