Only Murders In The Building

Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” is back with all new episodes on August 8, and season 3 sets up a new mystery based on the ending of season 2.

The Details

Season 3 finds Charles (Disney Legend Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short), and Mabel (Selena Gomez) investigating a murder behind the scenes of a Broadway show.
