Only Murders in the Building season 2 preview
Season 1 of the acclaimed series ended with Charles, Oliver and Mabel unmasking Tim Kono's killer. However, their celebration was cut short when Mabel was discovered covered in blood and kneeling over the body of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, who was stabbed with a knitting needle. The season ends with all 3 of them taken in by the police for questioning, under the shocked gaze of the entire neighbourhood.
In season 2, the amateur detective team will have to deal with the fallout from the new crime. Besides being publicly implicated in the murder, they become the subject of a competing podcast. Not only that, but the other building residents all think they did it. By the looks of the trailer, someone is working very hard to frame them. Getting to the bottom of things will be even more complicated this time around.
Martin Short, Selena Gomez and Steve Martin are all reprising their roles in Only Murders in the Building season 2. The trailer also shows glimpses of Tina Fey as the host of the competing podcast and Da'Vine Joy Randolph as the detective who helped the trio look into Tim Kono's death. Nathan Lane confirmed that his character Teddy Dimas will be featured in the new episodes.
Additionally, Cara Delevingne (Carnival Row) joins the cast as Mabel's friend and potential love interest. Amy Schumer (Life & Beth) will also appear, along with Shirley MacLaine, Andrea Martin, Zoe Colletti and Michael Rapaport. The first season featured a few celebrity cameos. So there's a chance Only Murders in the Building still has some surprises in store for season 2.
Early reviews for this season have been positive, with Only Murders in the Building currently holding steady on Rotten Tomatoes with a perfect 100% score. Given the amazing chemistry between the central trio, we're sure that this new season will be an absolute delight.
