Meryl Streep is joining the cast of the hit Hulu series ‘Only Murders in the Building’ for its upcoming Season 3. Only Murders in the Building was co-created by Steven Martin and John Hoffman, who executive produce with Selena Gomez, Martin Short, Jess Rosenthal, and ‘This Is Us’ creator Dan Fogelman.
Gomez, who also co-stars in the mystery series with Steve Martin and Martin Short, revealed the casting of three-time Oscar winner Streep in a video clip posted to her Instagram with the caption: “I could cry season 3 is coming!” Gomez later posted a photo of herself and Streep alongside castmates Short, Martin and Paul Rudd with the caption: “Very, very grateful lady! @onlymurdershulu @hulu @johnnyhoffman5 thank you for making this wanna be an unbelievably, absurdly happy human ”
Additional details of Streep’s role have yet to be announced. The third season, which is currently filming, will also feature Jesse Williams, Tina Fey, Vanessa Aspillaga, Adina Verson, Ryan Broussard, and Andrea Martin. The first season followed the exploits of podcasting trio Charles, Olivier, and Mabel as they sought to find the murderer responsible for the death of Bunny Folger—the board president of the building they all reside in. In the second season, the trio became suspects for Bunny’s homicide.
