Only Murders in the Building is a Binge-Worthy Treat

Hulu’s new series Only Murders in the Building seems to be taking everything we love and putting it into one series. Comedy, murder mysteries, true-crime podcasts and a twist of dark humor. The series is set to drop the first three episodes on Hulu next week with the remaining five episodes coming out weekly. It follows three neighbors who are as almost as mismatched as friends as the Odd Couple as they try to solve a murder that happened in their New York City apartment building. Finding out that they’re all fans of the same true-crime podcast bonds them together – but will the investigation tear them apart?

If you are a fan of MFM or any of the countless other true-crime podcasts out there, you’re going to absolutely love Only Murders in the Building. Their love for podcasts is not only on display as they try to figure out what happened that night, but they launch their own and get their own fans following the story as it unfolds. The series takes you along the way as they try to find out who did it, and get deeper into the investigation than they ever thought they would.

With misdirection, comedy, and a little bit of blood – Only Murders in the Building is a series that will have you wanting more after each episode. And while the main cast might seem like it’s a weird combination, the comedic timing and weird behaviors each brings to their character is well suited for the goofy trio. Be on the lookout for red herrings and other clues as you watch the show – will you be able to solve the crime before they do?

From the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman comes a comedic murder-mystery series for the ages. “Only Murders In The Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
