Get ready to return to The Arconia, as the third season of Only Murders in the Building is officially here.

The witty mystery series starring Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez has hooked fans from the very first episode, with twists, turns and some *very* shocking cliffhangers.

In the third season, there’s more mystery and murder to resolve – and thankfully us Aussies will be able to keep up with the shenanigans in real-time, as the episodes drop at the same time as the US on Disney Plus. If you’re not already signed up to Disney Plus, you can sign up here.

Before we jump into the ins and out of the third season, let’s jog your memories. The first season followed a group of neighbours in the prestigious Arconia building in New York City, who began investigating the murder of another resident by launching a podcast titled Only Murders In The Building after listening to one too many murder podcasts themselves. 

The joy of solving *that* murder was short-lived, however, after Mabel (played by Selena Gomez), found herself a prime suspect in another murder in the infamous apartment complex. 

Warning! Spoilers below.

What happened at the end of Season Two?

By the end of season two, we finally had answers on who killed Bunny Folger – and we were shocked. Despite some seriously believable red herrings, it turns out the killer was Poppy White, a.k.a. Becky Butler, a.k.a. Cinda Canning’s assistant. 

This whole reveal came during our fave trio’s “Killer Reveal Party” – which was great, and everything was nicely wrapped up. The end. Or so we thought…

As the finale drew to a near, the show jumped one year into the future and we see Oliver directing a Broadway play starring Charles and Ben Glenroy, played by Paul Rudd. 

On opening night we see Ben deliver his monologue before dramatically collapsing and dying on stage, as Joy, Lucy, Mabel and Oliver watch in horror. The end (for real this time).

What do we know about Season 3?

Thanks to the dramatic finale season of season two, the new season centres around the murder/death of Ben Glenroy. 

This season also has Meryl Streep cast as another actor in the play, Jesse Williams as a documentarian, and Ashley Park as a Broadway ingenue.

Cast pics showed Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez looking very cozy as they worked alongside Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd to announce filming had commenced earlier this year.
