The way in which Only Murders in the Building is the nice series in which every Hollywood actor wants to work can be seen by the number of television and film signings that it accumulates for the fourth season: Meryl Streep, Eva Longoria, Eugene Levy, Molly Shannon, Kumail Nanjiani, the recently Oscar-winning Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Zach Galifianakis and, as seen in the trailer for the fourth season, also Melissa McCarthy, known for her work in My Best Friend’s Wedding or Perfect Nine unknown.

“What we need is a very cool dead body, preferably here or very close,” says Martin Short in the images. He knows that, if he doesn’t have a body, he has no plot for the next season of the podcast. Fate, as the viewer already knows, has a surprise prepared for him: in the apartment of Steve Martin’s character there is already a body: that of Sazz (Jane Lynch), his body double, who we assume was shot to death by mistake with a bullet intended for Charles.

The trailer also serves to understand how the change of location of the season will take place, which will not only be filmed in New York, which is part of the DNA of Only Murders in the Building, but also in Los Angeles. A Hollywood studio wants to adapt the amateur true crime podcast to film. That’s where, for example, Loretta is, the character played by Meryl Streep, who accepted a role on television and had to move to California.

The series created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman, who serves as showrunner, is achieving something that is increasingly rare in streaming series: having a season ready for broadcast in the summer and not losing favor with critics or awards, where he always gets nominated at the Emmy Awards for Best Comedy.

And when can we expect the 10 new episodes of Only Murders in the Building? For August 27 in the United States waiting to confirm what date Disney Spain has planned for the series starring and produced by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
