Only Murders S3: First Look
*WARNING: Spoilers ahead — read at your own risk!*
A mysterious murder strikes the Arconia crew yet again and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
Season 2 ended with Charles’ acting partner, Ben Glenroy (Paul Rudd), collapsing to his death on stage during opening night of Charles and Oliver’s new theater production.
Charles confronts Ben just before the curtains rise, threatening him to leave “her” alone because he knows what Ben did. Now three questions remain:
- What did Ben do?
- Who is the “her” Charles is referring to?
- Does Charles have something to do with Ben’s sudden demise?
With the help of co-star Loretta Durkin (Meryl Streep), our favorite true crime trio tries to crack their trickiest murder mystery yet. Can they find Ben’s killer while salvaging their show? Get ready for a thrilling mix of mystery, suspense, and comedy as the curtains rise on a brand new season of Only Murders in the Building.
