Only Murders in the Building season 4 trailer promises Hollywood stardomon May 16, 2024 at 16:19 Tech Advisor


The creators of Only Murders in the Building are keeping up with the series’ tradition – as usual, the new season will appear a year after the premiere of the previous one. This summer, the trio of detectives will not only untangle another criminal mystery but also set on a special mission to Hollywood.

The season 3 finale dropped on 3 October 2023 and on the same day, Hulu green-lit the next instalment of the beloved series. The show’s third season ended with a massive cliffhanger. The stakes in the series have gone up – it looks like in the fourth season the protagonists won’t just be solving crimes, but fighting for their lives.

Here’s what we know about the next instalment of Only Murders in the Building. In the US, you can stream all three seasons of the series on the Hulu website. British fans can watch the show on Disney+.

Only Murders in the Building season 4 release date

The fourth season will arrive on Tuesday, 27 August 2024, on Hulu in the US and Disney+ in the UK.

New episodes will drop every week.

The first season came out at the end of August 2021. Season 2 followed in June 2022, and season 3 arrived in August 2023. As you can see, the individual seasons appear at roughly one-year intervals.

Only Murders in the Building season 4 trailer

Here’s the official trailer in its entirety, revealing that Hollywood is looking to buy the rights for the podcast… though it’ll have to be for the right price:

Only Murders in the Building season 4 plot

Spoilers for season 3 below.

Season 3 ended in a way that no one could have predicted, and as far as we know, it had nothing to do with the reveal of Ben Glenroy’s killer.

As it turned out, someone may have been trying to murder Charles-Haden Savage. As the rest of the guests enjoyed themselves at Oliver’s musical premiere party, Charles’s stunt double Sazz Pataki briefly entered his flat. Moments later, she was shot by a sniper rifle and was last seen bleeding out on the floor.

It’s highly likely that Charles was supposed to be the victim, but the killer confused him with his stunt double. Charles has had his life in danger before, when Jan Bellows tried to poison him in the first season. However, the addition of a sniper could mean that this was a hired job.

The alternative is that Sazz was the intended target, but right now we don’t know why that could be.

The question is, is this act connected to previous crime mysteries or an entirely new criminal affair? We also don’t know for sure that Sazz is dead – we should learn more in the coming months.


Craig Erwich, Disney Television Group President, revealed in an interview with Collider that in season 4, the characters will leave New York and head to Los Angeles. It’s all because of an offer the trio received – Hollywood filmmakers want to make a movie about their podcast.

Erwich states:

Well, I’m very excited to see Steve, Martin and Selena take a little break from the apartment building and come to Los Angeles. So in the same way that John Hoffman used the canvas of Broadway to tell what I think was one of the most unique seasons you’ve ever seen, the same unique Only Murders take will be applied to Los Angeles, which I’m really excited about.


Only Murders in the Building season 4 cast

The series’ heart is the trio of tireless podcasters and amateur detectives: Oliver Putnam, Charles-Haden Savage and Mabel Mora. Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez will star as these characters respectively.

We will also see the return of Michael Cyril Creighton as Howard Morris and Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Detective Donna Williams. Season 4 could also feature Tina Fey as cynical podcaster Cinda Canning, James Caverly as Theo Dimas, and Ryan Broussard as Will Putnam, Oliver’s son.

After the release of the first trailer, it’s sure that we will see Meryl Streep starring again as the actress Loretta Durkin. At the end of season 3, the door to an acting career opened for her. Despite Lorreta’s relationship with Oliver, she decided to follow her dreams. However, it seems that the trio will meet her again in Hollywood.

It also came out that Jane Lynch, who portrays Sazz Pataki, will be back in season 4, though this may be through flashbacks.


The fourth season, of course, won’t be without cameos. The cast will also feature:

Molly Shannon

Eva Longoria

Melissa McCarthy

Eugene Levy

Kumail Nanjiani

Zach Galifanakis

Richard Kind

It’s unlikely that Paul Rudd will return unless the series creators have flashbacks planned.

It’s hard to say whether Jesse Williams will return as Tobert, the cameraman and Mabel’s love interest. As mentioned above, he has been offered a job in Los Angeles, and, as we know, Mabel has had no luck with previous relationships.
