Only Murders in the Building S02 Preview: No New "Hobbies" For Them

With only eleven days to go until the second season of Hulu's Only Murders in the Building hits our screens, we're pretty sure you're aware of the situation Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short) & Mabel (Selena Gomez) find themselves in when the season-opener debuts. Following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell), the trio must race to unmask her killer. Except they have a few obstacles in their way. They're publicly implicated in Bunny's homicide, now the subjects of a competing podcast, and dealing with a bunch of New York neighbors who all think they committed murder. Simple enough, right? But then there's the matter of all of that darn evidence that keeps gravitating around them. So with premiere time creeping closer, Martin, Short & Gomez checked in with Jimmy Kimmel on his ABC late-night talk show for a fun visit (more on that below) that also included a preview clip where Charles, Oliver & Mabel are reminded that they have the opportunity to walk away and live their lives… that this isn't a case that needs them on it. Of course, our heroes have other ideas…

Here's a look at the trio's visit to Kimmel's late-night show (with the preview beginning around the 6:20 mark). In addition, Martin, Short & Gomez discuss Martin contracting COVID, Gomez attending Britney Spears' wedding, what it's like for Gomez to work with Martin and Short, and their upcoming show at the Hollywood Bowl:

And here's a look at an extended version of that clip:

With our favorite trio ready to crack the case one more time (because it's true, how often does a true-crime podcast get a chance to record a legit sequel?), here's a look at an official trailer for Hulu's Only Murders in the Building (premiering on June 28th), followed by a look back at the previously-released teaser:

"'Only Murders In The Building' came in this year as an unexpected yet welcomed television surprise. Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez bring every ounce of passion for storytelling to each scene. The depth of comedy & mystery coupled with a genuine connection to characters never ceases to both surprise and amaze me," wrote Bleeding Cool's Britney Bender about the series during our look back at the best of 2021. "It's one of those shows that was so perfectly meant for either week-to-week viewing or binge-watching because it knew its' audience and didn't dismiss how much a mystery aspect would be loved and appreciated. It translates the passion of a favorite thrilling novel, that you would find yourself quoting from daily and presents it perfectly in front of your eyes." Now here's a look back at what Martin, Short & Gomez had to say when the premiere date for the second season was first revealed.

Hulu's Only Murders in the Building hails from co-creators and writers Martin and John Hoffman (Grace & Frankie, Looking). Martin and Hoffman executive produce alongside Short, Gomez, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal.
