Only Murders in the Building season 3: Release date, cast, plot and trailer
Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd join the party in season 3.
Calling all murder-mystery fans! Another light-hearted case is about to unfold in Only Murders in the Building season 3, with some truly A-list guest stars getting in on the fun this time.
Previous editions of the show have attracted the likes of Sting, Amy Schumer and Cara Delevingne, but the producers have exceeded all expectations with two major season 3 hires: Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep.
Rudd has been a big name in US comedy for decades, while he's also built a career in blockbusters since joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Ant-Man – a superhero persona that is gently lampooned in this series.
Meanwhile, Streep needs no introduction as one of Hollywood's most celebrated actors, with early reviews indicating that she's a priceless addition to the Only Murders in the Building cast.
If you're keen to get stuck into the latest mystery, here's everything you need to know about Only Murders in the Building season 3 on Disney Plus in the UK.
