We already knew that season three was on the horizon, but what we didn't know is who would bite the bullet - or should we say, collapse on stage and spit blood.
Yes, 'Only Murders in the Building' wrapped up its season two finale in a nice, neat bow yesterday, but the episode finished up by revealing who will be the next victim as we head into the third season. If you've made it this far, then we'll take it you already know who this is - the one and only Paul Rudd.
The ageless actor popped up in the finale episode in the closing five minutes after the action jumped a year ahead to when Oliver's (Martin Short) dream of producing a broadway show was finally coming to life. Unfortunately for him, his lead actor collapsed after one sentence into the gig, leading Mabel (Selena Gomez) to comment "You've gotta be f*cking kidding me".
It's been confirmed that Rudd will return for season three of 'Only Murders in the Building', presumedly for a series of flashbacks so we can get to the bottom of his and Charles' (Steve Martin) frosty relationship - or maybe he miraculously survived? We'll have to wait until next year to see what Broadway star Ben Glenroy did to wind up Brazzos so badly.
Fans on Twitter were ecstatic to see the 'Ant-Man' and 'I Love You, Man' star make a cameo appearance, but the thrill was short-lived after the actor croaked it a few minutes later.
'Only Murders' has been known to feature countless cameos over its two-season run, with Amy Schumer, Jimmy Fallon, Shirley MacLaine, Sting and Jane Lynch all appearing at some point as the mysteries of the sleuthing trio unfolded.
The season two finale was titled 'I Know Who Did It' and involved our main stars joining up with the other residents of the Arconia building in order to finally catch out Bunny's murderer in dramatic fashion. Although we were initially led to believe Tina Fey's horrible podcast host Cinda Canning was the chief suspect, followed by Cara Delevingne's Alice, it eventually turned out to be Cinda's assistant, Adina Verson's Poppy White AKA missing Oklahoma woman Becky Butler to took out Bunny.
Expect more details about 'Only Murders in the Building' season three in the near future. The first series has been nominated for 17 Emmys at this year's awards, which will take place on September 12.
