Only Murders in the Building season three teases Rudd, Streep characters

The first teaser for season three of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building has arrived, showing off newcomers Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep.

The first teaser for season three of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building has dropped, building directly off of the season two cliffhanger.

The 30-second teaser for season three of Only Murders in the Building starts off with the aforementioned season two finale scene, with Paul Rudd’s character, Ben Glenroy, dying on stage while starring in Oliver Putnam’s (Martin Short) latest play. From there, it will be up to Putnam, Charles Haden-Savage (Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short) and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez) to investigate their latest case and solve the death. The season will also partly be a prequel to those events, showing the production of the play.

Only Murders in the Building co-creator John Hoffman previously teased a little bit of what to expect in season three, especially as it pertains to the dynamic between Steve Martin and Paul Rudd’s characters. “There are very sort of pointed things that Charles is saying to Ben. It’s clear that there’s huge tension between these two actors for their Broadway opening and the source of that will be revealed in Season 3. There are things being said by Charles like, ‘I know what you did,’ and ‘Stay away from her.’ All of that is a tee-up to where we’re going next season. If there’s one thing to hold onto here is ‘her identity.” On snagging Rudd, Hoffman said, “We were saying, is there any world where a major movie star could come and do this five minutes for our season finale? But more importantly, when we come around to shooting Season 3, many, many months from now, would he be available because he’s now a certain kind of victim within our show? We need to have time with him; would he come back and play with us in Season 3? God love Paul Rudd because he immediately said yes.”

In addition to Paul Rudd, season three of Only Murders in the Building will also feature Meryl Streep, which is also a pretty good get to say the least. Streep joined the cast earlier this year. Hoffman also praised the work of Streep, whose character appears to be a key member of Putnam’s play. “It’s this domino effect of wonderful experiences, and she is everything anyone has ever said about working with her…It’s really a hell of a time on our set right now.”
