Season one of Hulu's hit mystery-comedy "Only Murders In the Building" seemed poised to end on a positive note — after weeks of sleuthing, Arconia residents Mabel (Selena Gomez), Charles-Haden (Steve Martin), and Oliver (Martin Short) had solved the murder of fellow Arconian Tim Kono (Julian Cihi).

But as the trio gathered on the roof of their apartment building to celebrate their victory with champagne, things took a surprisingly nasty turn. The series concluded with Mabel, Charles, and Oliver all being led out of the building in handcuffs, after they were found near the body of building manager Bunny.

The new season of "Only Murders" premieres on Tuesday, June 28. Ahead of the upcoming episodes, here's a refresher on where season one left off.

Warning: Spoilers for the first season of "Only Murders" ahead.

Jan was identified as Tim's murderer, after she tried to kill Charles in a similar fashion

Originally, the group had suspected Teddy Dimas (Nathan Lane) and his son, Theo (James Caverly), as the culprits in Tim's death, but after reviewing security camera footage and autopsy results, they eventually conclude that the Dimases weren't to blame (for Tim's murder, at least).

Unfortunately for Charles, his girlfriend Jan (Amy Ryan) soon becomes Oliver and Mabel's focus when they find a bassoon cleaner hidden amongst Tim's sex toys. In the series finale, Charles goes on to confront Jan, who gleefully reveals that she poisoned Tim after he broke up with her, and has just poisoned Charles as well.

Jan then divulges that she's planning on poisoning the entire building, too, but Mabel and Oliver are able to stop her and rescue Charles. Jan is subsequently arrested for Tim's murder, and the Arconia residents are saved.

After Tim's case was closed, the trio were seemingly off the hook

Charles, Oliver, and Mabel gathered on the roof of the Arconia in the finale to toast their success with a little champagne. Midway through their celebration, however, Charles and Oliver receive a text message from an unknown sender that tells them to leave the Arconia immediately.

As Mabel has left to go get more champagne, the two rush to alert her of the situation, only to find her hunched over the dead body of Bunny, the Arconia's curmudgeonly building manager. Mabel is covered in blood, and a knitting needle is stuck in Bunny's chest. Mabel tries to explain that Bunny's death was an accident, that the building manager stumbled into Mabel's apartment and fell on her knitting needle.

Unfortunately for the trio, before any further explanations can be made, the police burst in and arrest the three of them. The first season ends with Charles, Oliver, and Mabel being led out of the Arconia by authorities, while a crowd — including Mabel's love interest, Oscar, and fellow podcaster Cinda Canning — looks on.

The season one finale certainly created more questions than answers, meaning that viewers are likely in for another season full of shocking accusations and bombshell reveals.
