The trio of investigators from Only Murders in the Building will return for a new investigation in the fourth season of crime comedy. Hulu has in fact announced the renewal of the TV series, available in Italy on Disney+ (also visible on Sky Glass, Sky Q and via the Now Smart Stick app), on the same day as the release of the third season finale. Last August, on the occasion of the debut on the platform of Only Murders in the Building 3season had achieved the milestone of premiering the most views of any Hulu original drama in 2023.
In previous seasons the protagonists Charles Haden Savage (played by Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (interpreted by Martin Short) And Mabel Mora (played by Selena Gomez), three tenants of the luxurious building on the Upper East Side in New York called Arconia, have lived adventures in the spirit of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. In the first season the improvised detectives recorded a true crime podcast about the murder of another inhabitant of the building, Tim Kono (interpreted by Julian Cihi). In the second season they investigated the suspicious death of a new victim, Bunny Folger (played by Jayne Houdyshell), president of the palace’s board of directors. In the third season they set out on the trail of the killer of Ben Glenroy (played by Paul Rudd), a famous actor who died on the evening of the premiere of his Broadway debut in Oliver’s play. Helped by his co-star Loretta Durkin (played by Meryl Streep), the trio faced their most difficult case yet, with the intent of saving Oliver’s show too. The finale, which did not spare the twists, revealed important secrets, and now the fourth season will host a new mystery to solve.
THE RELEASE DATE
“We just got picked up for season four,” he told Variety the creator of the series John Hoffman. “So where we are now, having gained this understanding of themselves and what the trio means to them, feels like a great stepping stone into next season where they get back together completely on the case — and for good reason , because it feels pretty close to home.” Due to the strike of the actors of the Screen Actors Guild, who protest against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers and thus block Hollywood productions, the arrival of the latest investigations and the appearance of potential guest stars they could wait 2025.
