Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, and Martin Short are back for Season 2 of crime and laughter. Only Murders in the Building returns to Disney + from June 28, 2022. That they would return was the only thing we knew without the need for investigation. Because the public and critical success of the first season of Only Murders in the Building had been so convincing that the curtain had not yet fallen, 

on the Arconia Building and its blood mysteries, which Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez were already on. 'Be careful, ready to start again another round of waltzes, podcasts, and crimes.

Only Murders in Building 2: this time the trio has one more reason to investigate

The second season of a true-crime podcast is a risky thing, even repeats Oliver Putnam (Martin Short); he has not yet resumed directing on Broadway but he is more unstoppable and deranged than ever. The risk is to settle for a second-hand crime and ruin everything. It will be for this, it will be a coincidence, however, Only Murders in the Building 2 begins exactly where (and how) the first season ended. 

With the Tim Kono crime solved and the triumph of the unlikely detectives of the Arconia. They do not have time to celebrate, however, taken into custody by the police after the anything but accidental death of the condominium administrator, Bunny Folger (Jayne Houdyshell). For Oliver, Charles (Steve Martin), and Mabel (Selena Gomez), from investigators to suspects, the step is really short.

Credit goes to the creative team behind Only Murders in the Building 2 for instantly realizing there was no other way to approach the sequel. As dark and dusty as the corridors of the Arconia might seem, the space for further secrets and mysteries was narrow, so it was better to hook the new to the old. Only the grand finale will reveal whether Serena's demise is really related to the previous crime, but it doesn't matter here. 

Having narrowed the two crimes narratively and thematically so that, when one is solved, the other explodes, allows us to consider the second season as a coherent expansion of the themes and motives of the first. Thus, even the most shabby true-crime podcast finds its raison d'etre.

A winning formula is not changed, if anything it is completed. The second season continues to focus on the irresistible alchemy of acting styles and humor (according to age) at the antipodes. Steve Martin and Martin Short on one side, Selena Gomez on the other. He is not in a hurry to find his own rhythm, he has inherited an interesting one and the confidence in the step is felt. 

Season 2 is just as fun as Season 1, maybe even more fun. The proposal loses something in terms of pure originality but allows itself the luxury of broadening the gaze, on the supporting actors and other tenants of the Arconia, on the experiences of the three protagonists, especially Charles. Find a way to reflect on its success by “roasting” the protagonists. 

Now that the podcast is closed and success is assured, the three would like to put the crime aside and go their separate ways. Mabel with her artistic ambitions, Charles returning to TV, and Oliver is constantly high. Can not be done. Partly because the competitors, see Tina Fey, make you feel breathless with their podcasts/plagiarism, partly because there is a second crime and this time the stakes are higher. Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, and Martin Short now investigate first of all to clear themselves. The secret of the sequel is all here.

Crimes and lightness

On the main and secondary points of the plot, it is better to overlook, that the time is not yet ripe for a third crime, this time behind the scenes. On the new characters, the considerations to be made are somewhat the same; mouths are sewn as regards the appearance of Shirley MacLaine, by Cara Delevigne it can be said that she is a British artist and that she crosses paths with Selena Gomez, 

while Amy Schumer makes a comeback, having fun, cynical and unbearable. For the rest, the humor goes in tandem with the more gory aspects, the old-fashioned (and sweetly self-deprecating) charm of Martin and Short binds perfectly with the ease in step with the times, but punctuated by dark pages, by Selena Gomez. 

The series is, it remains, a mockery of loneliness and a sincere tribute to friendship, especially the one that seems most unlikely at the starting line. An underlying lightness that is the hallmark of the entire operation links laughter and crime, the romantic idea of ​​New York, and its dark alleys.

The lightness of Only Murders in the Building 2 is a sophisticated attitude, the pleasure of not taking oneself too seriously, an escape TV with something to say about our inner self, and the complicated relationship between life and entertainment. The ingredients and the relative dosage change little, the intention is not to turn everything upside down, at least at the beginning, but to force the limits of the formula and see what happens. 

There is always the desire to have fun by making satire on the collective attraction for mystery and crime. There must be something out of place, in the morbid curiosity with which we approach murder, but the human soul is like that, and therefore what remains to be done but laugh at it?

We also laugh at the obstinacy with which the three protagonists stage their investigation, replicating with scrupulous minutia the attitudes, inclinations, and postures that belong to decades of TV, cinema, and literature. We laugh, without going too far. The dangerous proximity between good and evil, and the irresistible attraction of the human soul to the gray areas, are important issues that can be treated in many ways. 

Only Murders in the Building 2 remains so consistent with its intentions of lightness and evasion that it chooses to face them from the side, without ever sinking the knife into the wound (!). The ability to limit yourself is a sign of humility and intelligence. One cannot help but challenge them a little, from time to time, to this humility, this intelligence. Without exaggerating, because the offer is of the highest quality and it also improves with age.
