Only Murders in the Building season 2 teaser previews Cara Delevingne, Amy Schumer

This was probably the most exciting news I’ve heard in days. My favorite show of 2021 and perhaps the last few years now has an official return date and first teaser. Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building will return for its second season on June 28.

I was a bit late to the boat on the first season, and binged it in October instead of watching it weekly as it aired. The show was honestly a breath of fresh air — funny and sad and clever and creative with fleshed out supporting characters. It also felt very New York City at a time when New York City was (and still is) feeling pretty weird. The central trio of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez’s characters play off each other so perfectly that like Oliver, you don’t want anyone else to infiltrate the group. But new characters are coming in season two and it remains to be seen how they’ll affect the dynamic. Amy Schumer, Cara Delevingne, and a few others are joining and we got a first look in the teaser Hulu released on Oscar night.

Hulu today unveiled the first teaser for Only Murders in the Building Season 2, which offers a brief look at the characters played by new cast members Cara Delevingne and Amy Schumer.

“New York City. Who doesn’t want to become the talk of the town here?”asks Steve Martin’s Brazzos actor Charles-Haden Savage up top.

“We’ve been warned not to speak out,” says Martin Short’s struggling Broadway director Oliver Putnam at a press conference-type gathering—presumably regarding the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell) at the tail end of Season 1.

“But we here at Only Murders in the Building, we will not be going quietly,” adds Selena Gomez’s Mabel Mora.

Only Murders in the Building‘s first season watched as Savage, Putnam and Mora—three neighbors at New York apartment building, the Arconia—came to bond over their obsession with true crime. Following a suspicious death in their building, they decided to start their own podcast about their investigation of the death, which the police ruled a suicide.

In Season 2, they race to unmask Folger’s killer, though three (unfortunate) complications ensue—the trio is publicly implicated in Bunny’s homicide, they are now the subjects of a competing podcast, and they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbors who all think they committed murder. While Delevingne will play Alice, a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery of Folger’s death, details with regard to the character Schumer is playing have not been disclosed. This season, Michael Rapaport will recur, with Shirley MacLaine joining Schumer as a guest star.

Only Murders in the Building debuted on Hulu last August and returns for its second season on June 28. The series hails from co-creators and writers Martin and John Hoffman (Grace & Frankie, Looking), who executive produce along with Short, Gomez, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.

This teaser really was just that because I cannot wait for this show to come back. I have so many questions! What’s Amy Schumer’s character going to be? It seems that Michael Rapaport is joining as a detective, which makes sense because Da’Vine Joy Randolph’s Detective Williams was too close to the trio and would have a conflict of interest. But I really liked her character and her as an actress, so I hope she comes back and is subtly helping them. It seems like Cara Delevingne’s character might be the mysterious character this season, which I have mixed feelings about. I go back and forth on whether or not I like her, but right now I’m not a believer in her acting or her eyebrows. But, much like the in-show podcast fans, I choose to have faith in the creative team and trust that they know what they’re doing with this casting. I just hope that no one disrupts the trio’s tight knit group dynamic. I’ve heard random speculation that Cara’s Alice character might be a new love interest for Mabel, but I hope not because I loved Mabel’s story with Tie-Dye Guy. Deux Moi has for months had a lot of sightings of Selena and Cara hanging around New York together so make of what you will.

I’m looking forward to see how the new central mystery of the show unfolds. I’m a big fan of mysteries and sleuthing and can usually guess whodunnit, but the first season killer honestly surprised me. It made sense, it had shock value, and we had fun along the ride. Hopefully, the second season is just as revelatory as the first season, while still keeping some of the core elements that made the first season so engaging. And I’ll stop myself before I go on all day.

    I cannot wait! This was the best show I saw last year and ate up every second of it. I love the modern who-dunnit feel to it. I have such a soft spot for this too because my Dad passed away right before season one premiered, and one of the last things he and I ever spoke about on the last day I ever saw him was he was so looking forward to watching this.

    • ANON says:

      What a sweet memory you both shared. I was amazed how comforting it was to watch Steve Martin and Martin Short in something new. It felt like an unexpected gift! (And Selena Gomez was great!)

    Only Murderers was such a happy delight! I enjoyed the first season so much I went back to watch a few of my favorite episodes over and over 😬😆

    I’m convinced that Selina being in this and her doing so well caused Justin Bieber to have that dumb music video with Diane Keaton. Trying to keep up with the Selina.

  3. K says:

    This show was a joy for me. I will distanced watched with my little sister who was working out of state. It was a great way to hang out and enjoy this gem. Can’t wait for S2.

  4. LadyMTL says:

    This is one of the few shows that I and most of my friends all watch, and we had a blast last year trying to figure it out. Needless to say none of us guessed, but one friend came very close…she didn’t trust the person who ended up being the actual killer, but couldn’t put her finger on why. I am very excited for S2, bring on June!

    • margie says:

      I kept talking to my husband about that person- I was like, she is there for a reason, but what will her reason be? There is something off with this… Sounds like your friend and I were on the same wavelength. I knew there was something, but I couldn’t land on exactly what it was.

  5. Twin Falls says:

    Do I add a Hulu subscription for just this show? Ugh.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I’m in the same boat! So far, I’m holding steady at just three streaming services–Amazon Prime, PBS Passport, and Acorn–and I just don’t want to start adding more. But dang! This one looks like so much fun!

  6. FHMom says:

    I can not wait for this. It was a joy to watch. Only issue was that the episodes were too short and I wanted MORE

  7. Imara219 says:

    I was really enjoying this show until the last 2 minutes of the finale. Then I stopped caring. I’m disappointed that was the route it went and I’m not in the mood for a season 2. I’ll probably jump back in to read the commentary.

  8. Genevieve says:

    I hope Amy Schumer is playing herself. Like Sting. I think she could be hilarious doing that.

  9. Lucy2 says:

    So looking forward to this! Season one was a lot of fun, I hope season two is just as good.

    I got an Echo Show 8 this weekend for my kitchen (if you have neuro issues…the Echos are GREAT for keeping you tethered to reality)…and when I asked Alexa to pull up Hulu…it kept pulling up “OMITB” initially & it wouldn’t populate the other shows…so I ended up watching a couple episodes as I cleaned & cooked…by 5pm…I had slammed the WHOLE SEASON AND LOVED IT❣ I was going to watch eventually because I have adored Martin & Short since I was a child in the 70s…but this was the first time I had seen Selena in anything…and EVERYONE’S chemistry…along with the writing…was an entertainment 🎁

  11. L says:

    Love this show! I can’t wait for season 2!

  12. Anne says:

    I’m a fanatic Martin Short fan so I loved this. His interview on the podcast Smartless is hilarious. Glad it’s coming back and soon! If you liked this show check out The Afterparty on Apple TV. Similar quirky mystery and a great cast.

  13. Meg says:

    If cara is in it I may have a hard time watching, I really can’t stand her
