Only Murders in the Building season 3 cast

Who is in the Only Murders in the Building season 3 cast? Charles, Oliver, and Mabel have spent the last two seasons solving murders in their lovely apartment building, The Aronia. Still, after the series 2 finale, the trio was set for retirement, but it turns out the job of a true crime podcast is never done.

Only Murders in The Building has returned for a third season (which is hardly surprising when you consider this is truly one of the best Disney Plus shows). So what’s next for our amateur detectives? Well, to get to the bottom of this mystery, we’ve done our best impression of a true crime podcaster to tell you the Only Murders in the Building season 3 cast and everything else. Warning, potential spoilers ahead for one of the best TV series of all time.

What is Only Murders in the Building season 3 about?

Only Murders in the Building season 3 revolves around solving the sudden death of stage actor Ben Glenroy. We saw Glenroy, played by Marvel movie star Paul Rudd, drop dead in the Only Murders in the Building season 2 ending.

So, despite trying to retire from podcasting at the end of the second season, it looks like Charles, Mabel, and Oliver are about to be dragged back in by another strange, mysterious death.

The usual relationship and family subplots intermingle with this, of course. We learn more about each of the main trios’ pasts, as well as see them attempt to find love once again. Still, the most important question will always be: who’s the killer? Speaking of killers, check out our interview with the Only Murders in the Building season 2 killer.
