Aria’s favorite podcasters Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez are back for season two of “Only Murders in the Building,” which premieres June 28 on Hulu. This season, the hilarious murder mystery follows Charles, Oliver, and Mabel as they rush to find the killer of Arconia chairman Bunny Folger. Of course, the trio is now publicly embroiled in both the murder and the topics of a rival podcast. They’ll also have to deal with eclectic characters who live in the Upper West Side complex and now all think they’ve committed a murder.
The first season followed the unlikely trio who team up to solve the Tim Kono murder and follow their quest on a true-crime podcast. It’s no surprise to anyone who’s experienced them as a couple in ‘Father of the Bride’ that Martin and Short enter into a partnership that is as cute as it is prickly. Gomez, who has more to do with her character than meets the mystery, clearly takes the lead at the beginning of the series and does her best to make the most of Mabel’s messy narration.
Oliver has moments of melancholy, however, Mabel and Charles’ friendship gets richer as their equal doubts about being vulnerable turn into a shared experience of already learning to trust each other. “Only Murders in the Building” was co-created by Martin and John Hoffman (“Grace & Frankie,” “Looking”), who are executive producers with Short, Gomez, Jess Rosenthal, and “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman. The series will return on June 28!
