“Only Murders in the Building” Season Three to Premiere August 8th

Thanks to a Freudian slip from Steve Martin, we have learned that season three of Only Murders in the Building will premiere on August 8th.

UPDATE 5/16/2023:

  • Earlier today at the Walt Disney Company’s Advertising Upfront presentation, it was confirmed that the next season of the hit series will indeed debut on August 8th.

What’s Happening:

  • As reported by Variety, Steve Martin casually dropped the release date for the third season of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building during his “You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today!” tour with Martin Short.
  • During the show, Martin and Short gave updates on what they’ve been up to recently, showing a picture of them alongside their co-stars Selena Gomez, Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd.
  • At one point, Martin stated, “Catch the new season August 8,” which was followed by Short responding, “Our show is like Steve trying to pee — it streams for 33 minutes.”
