One of the true delights in Season 2 is a flashback arc focusing on events from last season as filtered through Bunny’s point of view.

There are a few series that manage to get better during their second season, but that's exactly what has happened with Only Murders in the Building. [Full review in Spanish]

Short is just as vain, theatrical and ridiculous. Gomez is still edgy and curt (although more vulnerable). Martin is even more Steve Martin. What more could you want?

The lead trio’s chemistry remains a highlight and the central question of who murdered Bunny Folger proves to be a strong enough throughline to anchor Only Murders’ second season through some of its sophomore slumping.

The world of Only Murders expands in season two ... almost always for the better.

There is so much to love here. Our trio continues to grow together, and their development is top-notch. The new characters work (for the most part), and the mystery will keep fans on their toes.

Wisely enough, the characters are expanded farther than the murders... Coupled with the plot, this is all a good lesson in how you can keep what works without putting the plot on repeat.

From the start, Only Murders in the Building stood out as a generous series with a lot of heart. It’s beating more joyously than ever second time around.

As it proved through its initial run, Only Murders in the Building is a witty, engrossing, thoroughly entertaining triumph whose delights are in the details and character interactions.

If you missed this show more for sentimental reasons as opposed to the sleuthing... oh baby, does it feel wonderful.

In the second season, the Arconia continues to be a portal to much wider worlds.

The brilliance of this show is that you want to solve the mystery as if it were a thriller, but you get all the pleasure of it being a comedy, too.

Unlike the true crime podcasts the show satirizes, doesn’t go into a sophomore slump after a great first season. Now that its comic rhythms are well-established, it actually feels like the show may be even better in Season 2.

Agatha Christie could only wish she had this much fun with a murder mystery.

It feels like no time has passed; we’re stepping back into pace with Oliver, Charles, and Mabel and their shenanigans. I’ve really missed them, and I’m glad they’re back on our screens.

It's every bit as breezy and fun, with lots of winking references to "Season 2" (the podcast, naturally, but you get the idea).
Jun 28, 2022
A gentle comedy and a thoroughly entertaining mystery, Only Murders in the Building season two is so good that I kind of hope people keep getting knocked off in that old apartment forever.

A fond and fun homage to screwball comedies.
