For season 3, two major stars are joining the cast. Paul Rudd has been cast as Ben Glenroy, the star of Oliver’s Broadway play. He dies in the season 2 finale when he collapses on stage after a contentious conversation with Charles.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has been cast as “a documentarian with a particular interest in the case” that Charles, Oliver, and Mabel are solving in season 3.

Other stars featured in the series are expected reprise their role for season 3. They include Howard (Michael Cyril Creighton), Ursula (Vanessa Aspillaga), Arnav (Maulik Pancholy), Uma Heller (Jackie Hoffman), Teddy Dimas (Nathan Lane), Theo Dimas (James Cavalry), and Nina Lin (Christine Ko). Other recurring characters that could return include Detective Williams (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), Cinda Canning (Tina Fey), Oliver’s son Will (Ryan Broussard), Charles’ daughter Lucy (Zoe Colletti), and the trio’s four-person fan club (Jaboukie Young-White, Daniel Oreskes, Ali Stroker, and Orson Hong).

“Only Murders in the Building is the true crown jewel of our slate. Its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena’s work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story,” Craig Erwich, president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.

In season 1, the trio bonds over their love for true crime podcasts as they explore the murder of their neighbor. In season 2, they became the prime suspects in the murder of the Arconia board president, Bunny Folger.
