Only Murders in the Building season 4 trailer and release date – Australia

It’s time for another season of Only Murders in the Building, and we’ve already got a murder in the titular building, locked, loaded, and ready to go: that of Sazz Pataki (Jane Lynch), stunt double to ageing actor Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin), victim of a sniper who may have been angling for her employer.

When is Only Murders in the Building season 4 being released in Australia?

Only Murders in the Building season 4 is streaming in Australia exclusively on Disney+ August 27, with new episodes dropping weekly.

What is Only Murders in the Building season 4 about?

As we noted above, the game is already afoot, with Charles and his fellow podcasters/sleuths, failed Broadway director Oliver Putnam (Martin Short) and artist Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez) trying to puzzle out who the assassin might be. They’re a bit distracted, though, and understandably so: a Hollywood studio wants to turn their podcast into a movie, and so the intrepid trio hop a flight for Los Angeles, where awkward hijinks are sure to ensue (take a look at the trailer below for evidence).

The cast of Only Murders in the Building season 4

In addition to the central triumvirate of Martin, Short, and Gomez, who have well and truly found a comfortable groove with this material, Lynch is back as Sazz, albeit in flashback form. Meryl Streep is also back as Loretta Durkin, her season 3 character, and Saturday Night Live veteran Molly Shannon is joining the show as a powerful Los Angelino businesswoman. Also on board are Eva Longoria, Eugene Levy, Kumail Nanjiani, and Zach Galifianakis, although exactly who they might be playing has yet to be revealed.

Why we’re excited about Only Murders in the Building season 4

Deft, funny, and not afraid to be silly when the occasion  demands, Only Murders in the Building is like the Frasier of the 2020s—which is a bit rough on the actual 21st century Frasier, but what can you do? Watching the series feels exactly like reading a collection of cartoons from The New Yorker while sipping a hot chocolate stiffened with brandy, which we could all use a little more of.
