Will there be an Only Murders in the Building season 4?
A fourth season hasn’t been confirmed, but given the show’s success and fan base, it seems likely that there will be another season. Though Hoffman previously revealed that he doesn’t have a “five-season plan” like other showrunners, he is excited to keep the show going as long as Hulu will allow him.
“I think there’s great variety [in terms of the stories that can be told],” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I know there have been funny discussions about how many murders can there be in one building, but I think that’s a fun challenge.”
