The first season garnered an impressive 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with praise for the screenplay, direction and, most importantly, the performance of the cast.
Discover excerpts from the main reviews:
“The series ends up presenting – like ‘The Promised Princess’, ‘Heroes Out of Orbit’ and ‘Jane the Virgin’ – something rare and incredible: a parody that is also a great production in itself. (Rolling stone)
“[Steve] Martine and [Martin] Short has excellent chemistry, with perfect comedic timing. But when [Selena] Gomez joins them, his impassive presence adds a much appreciated contemporary contribution. (Republic of Arizona)
“The production is fun, has a clever mystery, and a heavy cast, but it’s hard to shake off the feeling that the series missed an opportunity to be something special.” (Weekly entertainment)
“The show is successful most of the time, thanks to the amazing venues and the strong cast.” (Decide)
“The series directly attacks our weird collective fascination with the horrific deaths of other people, and hits that target with a barrage of high-pitched laughter, reinforced by the presence of two comedy legends.” (TV line)
“Like any good podcast about real crime, ‘Only Murders in the Building’ leaves you begging for more at the end of each episode. Its surprisingly predictable twists and turns are driven by its three talented protagonists. (Result)
The cast also includes Dan Fogelman, Jess Rosenthal, Jamie Babbit, Aaron Dominguez and Amy Ryan. Cara Delevingne will be part of the next cycle.
The series is created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman.
