The Arconia remains a hotbed for crime as Hulu announces plans for Only Murders in the Building Season 3. Hulu has officially ordered a third season of the breakout comedy series starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. The renewal comes only three weeks after the second season made its debut.

Only Murders in the Building is the true crown jewel of our slate. Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan [Fogelman], John [Hoffman], Steve, Marty and Selena’s work,” said Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich in a statement. “We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story.”

Created by Martin and Hoffman, Only Murders in the Building follows three strangers, played by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, bonded by a shared obsession with a true-crime podcast. When there is a mysterious death in their affluent Upper West Side apartment building, the trio decides to start their podcast about their investigation.

Only Murders in the Building has received high critical acclaim across its two seasons, with both registering a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series has been praised for the chemistry of the three leads and its comedic approach to the still-growing trend of true crime obsession. According to Samba TV, 627,000 U.S. households watched the season two premiere of Only Murders in the Building in its first week on Hulu. The show is a massive hit with millennials, so it’s not like fans of the old comedic guard are the only ones tuning in. These numbers and the shows growing popularity make Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building Season 3 pickup a no-brainer.
