Exclusive: Everyone Including Meryl Streep Returning to “Only Murders in the Building” — And They’re Going to Los Angeles


EXCLUSIVE Did I not tell you this already?

At the great AFI luncheon in LA last month, I learned a great deal.

“Only Murders in the Building” co-creator John Hoffman told me that “everyone will be coming back” for season 4. I had already reported that Nathan Lane was returning after taking season 3 off. Hoffman confirmed that, plus the whole gang. Hoffman gestured to Meryl Streep at their table. “You’re coming back?” I asked La Streep. She nodded in assent.

I’m sorry, I thought I told you that news.

Now TVLine is reporting that the show will move to Los Angeles just to shake things up. Will Mabel, Charles, and Oliver solve a murder mystery in Tinseltown? Will they all live in the same building? (There are several stories choices to choose from, “haunted” and so on. Maybe they could move into Chateau Marmont!)

Since Hoffman said “everyone” very emphatically, that means Mabel’s (Selena Gomez) boyfriend, Tobert, will return, played by Jesse Wiliams, as well Meryl’s son, Dickie, played Jeremy Shamos. And maybe Andrea Martin as Charles’s girlfriend, Joy.
