As we learned from the ending of the previous season, this new murder mystery to be investigated by Steve Martin’s Charles-Haden Savage, Martin Short’s Oliver Putnam, and Selena Gomez’s Mabel Mora will see us stepping away from the apartment building a bit more and into the world of Broadway. If my love of the theatre actors didn’t tip my hand, this change of scenery has me more thrilled than you can possibly imagine.
Meryl Streep, naturally, will be playing an actor in the Oliver Putnam-directed show also starring Charles and Paul Rudd’s Ben Glenroy, who is murdered on stage on the show’s opening night. By the looks of this teaser, we will be getting an effervescent, utterly delightful Meryl performance. The last time she played a theatre actor in a project was 2020’s horrendous adaptation of the quite delightful Broadway musical “The Prom,” but I am going to trust that Steve Martin, co-creator John Hoffman, and their room of writers know how to utilize her energy better than that.
I know I will be eagerly anticipating the announcement of a release date. Last season premiered at the end of June 2022, so I would imagine season 3 would start hitting the Hulu airwaves around the same time. If you ask me, that is still too long of a wait. But I’ll manage.
