What do you get when you replace one detective with three true crime podcast super fans? That’s right: Only Murders in the Building is back. The series was unsurprisingly green-lit for a third season in July 2022, after it received 11 Emmy nominations.
While the podcasting theme gave this whodunnit a modern spin, perhaps its best decision was situating the series in a fictional Manhattan apartment building – the Arconia – allowing for some Rear Window-style tension and neighbour-on-neighbour spying.
To find out more about how the series creators were influenced by Hitchcock’s classic and used its stylistic tricks to encourage viewers to try their own hand at crime-solving, have a look at our article, Only Murders in the Building’s streaming success is in the editing.
But season three will open things out beyond the Arconia, as the wannabe detectives try to solve a Broadway murder. So, what can we expect from the new episodes? Well, a huge amount of new star power for a start, as Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep are joining the cast.
Take a look at the official trailer for the new series:
