Only Murders in the Building season 3 is well underway, with Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short back to solve another murder.


This time, we're following Mabel, Charles and Oliver as they try to work out what happened to Broadway star Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd), who collapsed on stage on the opening night of Oliver’s play.

In an exclusive teaser for season 3 episode 5, Mabel, Charles and Oliver are seen discussing Joy’s possible involvement in Ben’s murder, as well as Mabel insisting she most definitely isn't going on a date with Tobert (Jesse Williams).

"Charles I can calmly talk to Joy, you know, investigator woman to suspect woman," Mabel tells Charles, who insists that it's important for him to be able to interrogate his fiancée.

The attention soon turns towards Mabel’s cocktail dress.

"Are you going out on a date?" Oliver asks, to which she responds: "No. Tobert has a suspect he has a lead on. I’m meeting him for a stake-out and the place has a dress code."

"Well it’s a date", Oliver then says, to which Mabel retorts: "It’s a stake-out when two totally platonic semi-professional investigators wait together in an out of sight enclosed space and watch while a suspect hopefully incriminates themselves while we hold in our pee for hours and eat stale Cheetos."

Only Murders in the Building season 3 premiered on Disney Plus on Tuesday 8th August 2023 in the UK, with new episodes set to release weekly until October.

The cast and crew celebrated the third season wrapping back in April in a video from the set.
