An all-star ensemble joins the murder mystery trio

Only Murders in the Building -- “Thirty” - Episode 309 -- The trio have amassed a plethora (oh yes, a plethora) of clues, suspects & theories but find no concrete answers about Ben’s murder.

Don’t leave the Arconia yet because there’s another murder to solve with Charles (Steve Martin) Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selina Gomez) in Only Murders In The Building season 4.

While most of us would probably just move after so many deadly incidents had taken place in the same New York apartment block, that hasn’t deterred three case-cracking inhabitants of this fancy building.

Following a third outing that upped the ante and featured guest appearances by stars like Paul Rudd, Matthew Broderick and Meryl Streep, Disney+’s popular murder mystery series is gearing up for a fourth whodunnit that’s set to feature even more twisty turns and starry names.

What else do we know about it? Let’s delve into all the case files we have for Only Murders in the Building season 4.

Will there be a season 4 of Only Murders in the Building?

Yes, there will. Only Murders in the Building was renewed for a fourth series in October 2023 and the announcement arrived just in time, coming shortly after the debut of season 3’s finale.

There’s currently no release date for Only Murders in the Building season 4. However, the show’s previous episodes arrived in June and August so perhaps we could expect the series to return sometime in summer 2025?

When we last left the Arconia, it was finally revealed that the producers of the series’ fictional stage show Death Rattle Dazzle, Cliff (Wesley Taylor) and Donna (Linda Emond), were behind the very public, on-stage murder of actor Ben Glenroy (Rudd).

With that case solved, viewers were soon faced with a brand new head-scratcher to puzzle over when Charles’s long-time stunt double Sazz Pataki (Jane Lynch) was shot dead by a mystery assailant through an open window whilst inside Charles’ apartment.

So who killed Sazz? We’ll have to wait for season four to find out. So far, plot details are being kept under lock and key but we do know that the show’s main trio will briefly visit Los Angeles before returning to their New York-based case.

Who is starring in Only Murders in the Building season 4?

We already know that Martin, Short and Gomez will be returning to their roles of former actor Charles, theatre director Oliver and artist neighbour Mabel respectively for Only Murders season 4.

Streep’s struggling actress Loretta Durkin, who joined the show in season 3, will also be back. However, as new episodes inch closer to cameras, we’ve started to get information on which guest stars will be joining them.

Eva Longoria is the latest name to be added to the Arconia’s residents list. Reports have it that she’ll play someone integral to the case at the heart of season 4 but otherwise, her role remains secret for now. Longoria will be joined by Schitt’s Creek star Eugene Levy will also join the series in a recurring role, details of which are also under wraps for now.

Together, they’ll be accompanied by fellow Only Murders newcomer Molly Shannon. The former Saturday Night Live star is reported to be playing a hot-shot Los Angeles businesswoman who gets drawn into the trio’s case in New York.

Elsewhere, it’s still not clear which of the show’s many recurring faces will return for Only Murders in the Building season 4 but as it creeps towards screens, we’re sure we’ll find out more soon enough.

Is there a trailer for Only Murders in the Building season 4?

There’s no trailer available for Only Murders in the Building season 4 either. Like the show’s latest murderer, it’s doing its best to elude us.

Hopefully, as production begins to ramp up, we’ll start to see some footage from Charles, Oliver and Mabel - and perhaps some of their new neighbours at the Arconia too.

Only Murders in the Building season 4 is coming soon.
