Yep, we’ve gone full fan girl for the new season of Only Murders In The Building. We’ve known since July of last year that a new season was coming. But we didn’t hear anything else, until now. And it’s about time because waiting six months to hear what’s coming was torture!!
The announcement to renew the hilarious whodunnit series didn’t come with a release date. But Hulu did promise it’s coming this year. That’s good news for anyone who hasn’t seen the show. You have time to catch up on the first two seasons. If you like movies like Clue, you’ll enjoy this show.
Additionally, there are two more reasons to watch Only Murders In The Building this season. And they both show up in the cast list. Paul Rudd is less of a surprise. He was in the final episode of season two, so we expected him to be in the upcoming season. SPOILER ALERT: Rudd‘s character died at the end of season two, so season three will most likely be about his murder. Which means Rudd will probably be in season three only through flashbacks of his life leading up to his death.
The other cast member, and the one we’re super excited about, was announced courtesy of Selena Gomez. She posted the cleverly crafted video announcement on her Instagram page. And it’s just as cute as she is.
Ahhhh!!! Meryl Streep is joining the cast this year! It hasn’t been revealed yet who she will play on season three of Only Murders In The Building. But we’re stoked to find out. Andrea Martin was also shown in the video, so we can assume she’s returning this season as Charles‘ girlfriend.
There hasn’t been much revealed about the plot of the upcoming season. But there have been hints dropped about the theme being centered on the theater world in New York City. Which means we’ll probably get a lot of focus on Martin Short‘s character this time around. Whatever is coming, we can’t wait for season three!

25 TV Show Theme Songs Written by Popular Musicians
They are catchy, getting stuck in our heads for hours. Each time we tune in they welcome us back with their cool melodies and comforting, familiar lyrics. They connect us to the shows we love, lure us back each week, and embed themselves in our memories. We sing along in spite of ourselves. Television theme songs have become almost as iconic as the shows they represent. But who writes these brief introductions that run over the opening credits to our favorite dramas and sitcoms? Often these magical musical medleys are written by well-known bands and musicians without us even realizing it.
Stacker researched the intersection between music and TV and compiled a list of 25 TV shows with theme songs written by noteworthy bands and musicians. There is the tale of the metal band who had to speed up the melody to fit the show, that song that actually seemed as if it was written for the crime drama though it had been penned years before, that old classic hit that was reworked to explore a mother-daughter relationship, the theme song that was updated for the sitcom reboot, and the time a legendary singer’s contribution simply wasn’t enough to help the show make it past its first season.
These songs are not only anthems to our favorite shows, but stories about the creators and ways in which the unforgettable themes came into being. Stacker invites you to explore the artists and stories behind your favorite television show theme songs. We dare you not to sing along!
