Only Murders in the Building is created by Martin and John Hoffman. The series premiered in August and is four episodes into its eight-episode first season.

Only Murders in the Building follows Mabel (Gomez), Charles-Haden Savage (Martin) and Oliver Putman (Short), three true crime podcast fans and residents of a New York City apartment building who investigate a murder.

“Everyone in our amazing Building worked with such love and expertise through extraordinary times — and with incredible support from Disney, Hulu and 20th TV — to create a first season that might live up to our legendary cast, our beloved New York City, and to make a show about connection,” Hoffman said in a statement. “To feel we’ve connected with our audience and hit the mark enough already to have the chance to continue — and to carry on our show’s wild ride of of mystery-comedy-empathy — is too exciting for words. So I’ll shut up now — and just say a huge thanks to all and I can’t wait for more!”
