If all of the documentaries and podcasts weren’t enough of a giveaway, the success of Only Murders in the Building is proof that the world cannot get enough of true crime.

The crime-comedy series stars comedy legends Steve Martin (Father of the Bride) and Martin Short (Three Amigos!), as well as pop star Selena Gomez.

The three live in the same New York building but couldn’t have more different lives if they tried. Except, that is, for their shared love of true crime podcasts.

Deciding to unite and make an unlikely crime-solving friendship group, the three uncover a murder plot in their own building. We won’t spoil it any further if you haven’t caught up yet.

Season one of the breakout hit was met with critical acclaim and huge streaming figures when it dropped in August 2021.

If you’ve been convinced to check out the series, here's how to watch Only Murders in the Building from anywhere in the world. You can binge the first 10 episodes before the second season drops, but when is that?

When is Only Murders in the Building season 2 out?

Season 2 of the hit series will drop on Tuesday, June 28.

The first two episodes will be available on this date, with the remaining eight episodes dropping weekly.

That will give you something to look forward to right up until August 23, when the finale will air.
