‘Only Murders In The Building’ Renewed For Season 2 On Hulu/STAR On Disney+
Hulu and STAR Original comedy ‘Only Murders In The Building‘ has been renewed for Season 2 the streaming services have announced.
From the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman (‘This Is Us’) and John Hoffman (‘Grace and Frankie’) the series follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.
