Releasing yet another Hulu Original, the streaming service has unveiled its latest new show, mixing crime and comedy. Only Murders in the Building is gearing up to be released within the next month. With a star-studded cast and a hilarious trailer, the new show looks like one that is definitely worth watching.
Back in early June, Hulu teased the show with a shorter trailer showing off a small portion of the show. More recently, on July 27, the official trailer was released, sharing almost three minutes of new scenes and more detail on the show’s plotline.
Starring well-known actors Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, Only Murders in the Building is described by Hulu as “The untitled comedy surrounds three strangers who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When their NYC apartment building becomes the center for a murder, they are forced to work together to figure out what happened.”

Deadline reported the show was co-created and written by Steve Martin and John Hoffman based on an idea from Martin. Building off the time-old phrase of “How well do you know your neighbor?” The show will follow Martin, Gomez, and Short’s journey to find out who killed their next-door neighbor. In addition to the three main cast members, the show also features actors Amy Ryan and Nathan Lane. It is executively produced by Martin and Hoffman, with help from Gomez, Short, and Jamie Babbitt.
Only Murders in the Building will also see producing credits from the TV show and This is Us creators Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal. Fogleman expressed how excited he was about the project saying in a post on Twitter that he “had lunch with” Steve Martin, and now two years later, this “idea” is coming to life.
Only Murders in the Building is expected to release on August 31, and fans of Gomez are really excited to see her back to acting. Most known for her earlier roles in Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place series, where she played the stumbling but charming Alex Russo and playing Mavis in the Hotel Transylvania movie series, Gomez hasn’t acted since being in the 2019 film The Dead Don’t Die. Gomez has been working on other projects, such as her latest all Spanish EP, Revelación, and a new swimwear line. Many are excited to see Gomez pull out those acting skills again that they remember her for.
