“Only Murders in the Building” will be getting even more murder-solvers with a meta twist.

The upcoming fourth season of the beloved Hulu series will star Eugene Levy, Zach Galifianakis, and Eva Longoria as the film adaptation versions of Steve Martin’s Charles, Martin Short’s Oliver, and Selena Gomez’s Mabel, respectively.

Levy, Galifianakis, and Longoria were all previously announced as cast members, but there roles are now confirmed. All actors are playing versions of themselves.

Of course, Levy, Galifianakis, and Longoria are no strangers to TV. Levy led Emmy-winning viral series “Schitts Creek,” while Longoria appeared in the iconically camp ABC drama “Desperate Housewives.” Galifianakis starred alongside Ted Danson in the cult HBO comedy “Bored to Death,” another show that combined elements of comedy and murder mystery.

Per the official synopsis for “Only Murders in the Building” Season 4, the main trio’s investigation leads them all the way to Los Angeles where a Hollywood studio is readying a film about the “Only Murders” podcast. Season 4 premieres on Hulu on August 27, with new episodes weekly.

Additional Season 4 cast members include Melissa McCarthy, Molly Shannon, Kumail Nanjani, Meryl Streep, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.

“Only Murders in the Building” hails from co-creators and writers Steve Martin and John Hoffman (“Grace & Frankie,” “Looking”). Martin and Hoffman executive produce along with Martin Short, Selena Gomez, “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal. The series is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.

Longoria recently told ET that her “Only Murders in the Building” role would be a hilarious surprise.

“It’s a really funny character,” she said. “When you find out who I play, you’re going to be like, ‘That’s perfect!'”

And perhaps “Only Murders in the Building” could revitalize the internet’s desire for a “Desperate Housewives” reboot. Longoria added that she “would be the first to sign up for the reboot” if greenlit.

“I’ve told [creator Marc Cherry] a hundred times,” she said. “I was like, ‘Let’s do it again. I miss Wisteria Lane. I miss the girls. I miss [my character] Gaby Solis. I miss being her.'”

The series co-starred Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, and Nicollette Sheridan as neighbors who band together after their friend and fellow local kills herself.
