The plot follows three strangers played by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, with a shared interest in true crime podcasts who join together to investigate a death in the apartment building they all live in. According to the official character description, Williams will play "a documentarian with a particular interest in the case."  It seems like he will be coming for Charles (Steve Martin), Mabel (Selena Gomez), and Oliver's (Martin Short) jobs but the question remains as to who will solve the murder first.

While we are discussing the Hulu series, in a previous interview, the 'Only Murders in the Building' creator John Hoffman gave a little insight on what might happen in the upcoming season to EW.

He said, "Season 1 was really centered around a Mabel story, and then Charles and his father emotionally led season 2 in many ways, so it feels right to lean into Oliver a bit more and his dream of a potential comeback, and so that's where it started to feel like we can go into the theater and imagine a break between them so that we have fodder for what happened in that year jump, and where are they when we join them in season 3 around this new problem they have ... We reset them a little bit, reset their world, and yet the Arconia is still very present in season 3."

In July 2022, the series was renewed for a third season, while Season 2 was airing and if we go by previous premieres, Martin, Short, and Gomez could return to Disney+ and Hulu summer of 2023.
