Filming for the second season of Only Murders in the Building is already underway. Selena Gomez, who stars as Mabel Mora on the murder mystery dramedy, shared a behind-the-scenes clip from the set highlighting the banter of her co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short. Needless to say, the short but sweet TikTok left fans wanting more.
Luckily, fans of Only Murders in the Building got their wish. On the very same day that Gomez revealed filming had resumed on the breakout series, The Hollywood Reporter revealed Cara Delevingne has joined the cast as a series regular for the upcoming season. According to the outlet, Delevingne will play Alice, "a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery."
Back in September, Hulu announced Only Murders in the Building had been picked up for a second season. The news came shortly after Hulu revealed Only Murders in the Building was the most-watched original comedy on premiere day and its most-watched comedy across all SVOD titles ever on the platform.
"Only Murders in the Building reflects the kind of creative excellence that is the hallmark of Hulu Originals," Craig Erwich, the president of ABC Entertainment and Hulu Originals, said in a press release. "Steve, John [Hoffman] and Dan [Fogelman] have created a uniquely captivating and entertaining series. The audience's response to the delightful blend of mystery, humor and emotion in the show has been overwhelming and we can't wait to follow this unlikely trio on their next adventure."
"There has been something about this project that felt almost fated from the start; from Dan's first lunch with Steve in which Steve happened to mention he had an idea for a series, to John jumping aboard to co-create it, to Steve's agreeing to star but only if Marty joined him, to the inspired addition of Selena," Karey Burke, the president of 20th Television, added. "The comedy this team delivered has been the obsession of every executive at this studio, and our friends at Hulu have treated it like the crown jewel that it is. And now, thanks to the incredible audience response, we are so happy to say there will be more murders in the building — which is great news for everyone, except perhaps the residents of the Arconia."
