“Only Murders in the Building” Season 3 Could Feature a Musical Episode

The upcoming third season of the hit Hulu series Only Murders in the Building could include something new for the series: a musical episode!

What’s Happening:

  • Sources at Variety recently got a tease that a musical episode may be in the cards for the new season of Only Murders in the Building.
  • This information came from the musical team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who said:
    • “We’ve worked on the next season of Only Murders in the Building. We’re not allowed to say anything more than that, but you could probably do that math.”
  • The duo’s latest Broadway extravaganza is the new musical adaptation of Some Like It Hot.
  • In the world of Disney, Shaiman provided the music for Mary Poppins Returns and 1997’s George of the Jungle, starring Brendan Fraiser.
  • Witman wrote the lyrics for nine of the songs on the Mary Poppins Return soundtrack. Together, they contributed the popular song “Save The City'' from the faux-musical, Rogers: The Musical, for Disney+’s Hawkeye.
  • The third season of Only Murders in the Building premieres August 8th on Hulu.
