TV: Smash Hit “Only Murders in the Building” Season 2 Will Start Rolling Out End of June Before Emmy Voting for 1st Season


Big news in TV Land:

“Only Murders in the Building” is returning to Hulu sooner, not later, than thought.

The smash hit starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez will start rolling out at the end of June. Originally it was supposed to return in August.

But since Hulu goes week by week instead of a binge drop in one day, “Only Murders” can begin its run without waiting for all the episodes to be finished.

Since voting for the Emmy Awards — for their first season — isn’t over until mid July, this will give the TV Academy a lot of excitement for the murder mystery. “Only Murders” is a watercooler show, with lots of word of mouth following each episode.

Great idea to come back early. Count me as a big fan, among many. This will be much needed by the end of June!
