Season 1 introduced Martin as the misanthropic ex-TV actor Charles, who embarked on a true-crime podcast with bankrupt Broadway director Oliver (Short) and snarky Gen Z’er Mabel after their neighbor Tim Kono was found dead.

The finale saw them reveal the killer. Yet, while toasting their success, Arconia board member Bunny was found fatally deflated by Mabel’s knitting needles. Just who is trying to frame the trio for murder?

Returning cast members include Tina Fey as Cinda, a rival podcaster, Amy Ryan as incarcerated bassoonist Jan, and Oliver’s old business partner Teddy (Nathan Lane), all of whom have good reason to discredit the group. Plus, Da'Vine Joy Randolph is back on the case with a new detective in tow (played by Michael Rappaport), and there'll be some fantastic guest appearances from comedian Amy Schumer and Hollywood acting legend Shirley MacLaine.

No one is above suspicion in this hilarious multi-generational whodunnit. So, keep reading as we explain below how to watch Only Murders in the Building season 2 online.

How to watch Only Murders in the Building season 2 online from anywhere else in the world

Tuesday June 28

Acclaimed Hulu Original series Only Murders in the Building will be available through Disney Plus (via the Star hub) everywhere else in the world. The first two episodes of season 2 will be added on Tuesday June 28, from 8am BST (UK) and 5pm AEST (AUS), with subsequent episodes released weekly.

As Disney Plus has now been rolled out in North America, Europe and parts of Asia and Latin America, watching Only Murders in the Building using the service is easier than ever. If you’re located in a country where the service is available, just head to the Disney Plus website and sign up for the service to watch.

In addition to being the exclusive home of Only Murders in the Building, Disney Plus also gives you access to Disney’s huge back catalog, the entire Star Wars canon, plus all things Marvel, Fox and Pixar all for just CA$11.99/£7.99/AU$11.99 a month.

How to save money on Disney+

Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix, but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription that gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You're looking at CA$119.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year.

What else should I know about Disney+?

Only Murders in the Building season 2 is just the latest in a string of blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian season 3, Pam and Tommy, Ms. Marvel and Rise. Plus, there's plenty more on the way, such as She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Willow, and Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion, all set to arrive in the coming weeks and months.

The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.

Only Murders in the Building is available on the platform thanks to the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy, which has seen the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy. 

It's available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.
