  • The series stars Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
  • Season 4 has just started shooting.

If there’s one thing that ‘Only Murders in the Building’ is known for despite its confounding, twisty murder mysteries, it’s the starry main and guest cast it is always able to attract.

Anchored by a crime-solving trio of amateur sleuth podcasters played by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. The three are more normally found solving –– and occasionally being falsely implicated in –– murders at the swanky Arconia apartment building in New York where they all live.

And for the latest, fourth season of the show, the cast is expanding once again, this time to include Kumail Nanjiani, Eugene Levy, Eva Longoria and Molly Shannon, as reported by Variety.

What’s the story of ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 4?

Most details of the plot for the fourth season are themselves a mystery right now, though in keeping with the show’s tradition, the main crime was set up at the end of the third season.

In the finale of the last batch of episodes, we’re re-introduced to Sazz (Jane Lynch) the longtime friend and former stunt double of TV actor Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin).

Sazz warns Charles that she has to talk to him privately, and while she’s waiting in his apartment, she is fatally shot by someone who presumably thought they were murdering Charles. Cue the dramatic sting!

As they try to figure out what Sazz was mixed up in, Season 4 will see our heroes headed to Los Angeles.

Here’s what show co-creator and executive producer John Hoffman told Us Weekly about the new season:

“It is something we haven’t done before. So I’m excited about that. The joy of working on the show is rare and I think everyone working on the show knows that’s rare. So the instinct and inclination is that there’s room here — certainly in what we’re looking at and thinking about for season 4 — to explore something new.”

Who are the new guest stars playing in ‘Only Murders in the Building’?

So far, all we know is that the newcomers will be integral to the story for the new season, but beyond that, only Molly Shannon’s character has been revealed: she’s playing a high-powered Los Angeles businesswoman who gets drawn into the mystery.

Alongside the new faces, Meryl Streep will return as actor Loretta Durkin, who formed a love connection with Martin Short’s Oliver Putnam in Season 3.

Has ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 4 started shooting?

Since you ask, yes! The cameras started filming a few days ago, with Steve Martin posting a picture of himself, Short and Gomez relaxing in chairs on set.

 

When will ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Season 4 be on screens?

Given that it has only just kicked off filming, we won’t expect the show to return until later in the year at the earliest. If it keeps to previous season premiere dates, it may well launch in August.
