Only Murders in the Building Season 4 Gets Premiere Date and Star-Studded First Trailer

Only Murders in the Building has dropped its first teaser for Season 4 and set its premiere date for August.

The trailer for Only Murders in the Building’s “starriest season yet” was unveiled during Disney’s upfront presentation, confirming the hit-comedy drama will debut its highly-anticipated fourth season on Hulu and Disney+ on August 27, with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez returning for more sleuthing shenanigans.

This time, however, the true-crime trio are packing their bags and heading to Hollywood, where there will be lights, cameras, and plenty of action.

“Our amateur podcasting trio wrestles with the shocking events at the end of season three surrounding Charles; stunt double & friend Sazz Pataki,” reads the official logline for Season 4. “Questioning whether she or Charles was the intended victim, their investigation leads them all the way to Los Angeles where a Hollywood studio is readying a film about the Only Murders podcast. As Charles, Oliver & Mabel race back to New York, they embark on an even more epic journey — traversing their building’s courtyard to delve into the twisted lives of the Arconia’s West Tower residents.”

Season four will see Meryl Streep return as Loretta, Michael Cyril Creighton back as Howard, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph reprising her role as Detective Dee Williams. They will join special guest stars Eugene Levy, Eva Longoria, Zach Galifianakis, Molly Shannon, Kumail Nanjiani, Melissa McCarthy, Richard Kind, and more.

The Biggest TV Shows Coming In 2024

Only Murders in the Building hails from co-creators and writers Steve Martin and John Hoffman, who executive produce along with Martin Short, Selena Gomez, Dan Fogelman, and Jess Rosenthal. The hit series received a renewal for Season 4 on the same day as the Season 3 finale, which left things on a cliffhanger.

Season 3 garnered generally favourable reviews, but IGN felt it had “lost sight of what made the first two seasons of the true-crime spoof so compelling” by not spending enough time “on solving the mystery at the center” of the whodunit. The finale aired on October 3, leaving Season 4 to pick up the pieces on August 27.
