Only Murders in the Building: how the finale sets the stage for season 2

Only Muders in the Building

Revelations fell in the last episode … but some mysteries will still have to be clarified in the next season, already ordered.

It was one of the good little surprises of the start of the school year: Only Murders in the Building has just completed its first season (on Disney Plus in France). And the verdict is in. Attention spoilers!

In the finale, Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short) and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez) were found to have solved the mystery of Tim Kono’s murder … but end up as the prime suspects of another murder in the wake! Bunny, the cranky building janitor who tried to evict our beloved podcasters, was killed in the dying moments. And since Charles, Oliver and Mabel were found next to the body, things don’t look good when the police arrive …

That already says a lot about the plot of Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building, commissioned by Disney Plus recently. If no official info has been released, we understand that she will probably explore the case of Bunny’s death and the involvement of our podcasters. We can already assume that Mabel will be particularly targeted by the investigation, since she was covered in blood, and that it was her knitting needle that ended up in Bunny’s chest … also knowing that she had swung at the victim just before she was “the most hated person in the building“! In short, everything will point the finger at her.

So who will manage to exonerate him and find out the truth? Maybe Cinda Canning (Tina Fey) … Because, a priori, she will also be a central character of season 2n, since she will offer her new podcast, Only Murderers in the Building, background.

Co-creator and executive producer John Hoffman also referred – in a interview with Queerty – that Season 2 will take a closer look at Oliver’s relationship with his family. Incidentally, he confirms that “our dream trio“, – Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez – will be back for the sequel.”You will see why. You will see them again. They will come back. Season 2 will be bigger and better than ever … “

The shooting of this season 2 of Only Murders in the Building will start at the end of this year, he says. So we should see that in 2022 on Disney Plus.
