Selena Gomez: Reveals Meryl Streep Joins 'Only Murders In The Building' Season 3


Selena Gomez's dream came true.

Just last month, Selena Gomez said her dream guest star on 'Only Murders In The Building' would be Meryl Streep.

That dream is now coming true, as the iconic actress will appear in the upcoming third season of the Hulu sitcom, which stars Selena Gomez, Martin Short and Steve Martin.

Selena Gomez announced the news by posting a video on Instagram of herself sitting between her co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short on the living room set of the hit series, which has received seven Golden Globe nominations.

"Children! We're on set! What are we filming? The third season! The gang is back!” says Selena Gomez, as she turns the camera to show her co-stars Andrea Martin and Paul Rudd, who will have a big role this season after his memorable appearance in the season two finale of Only Murders In The Building".

"Well, I think it could be a little better," Paul Rudd said with a smile, while Selena Gomez panned back to herself to reveal Meryl Streep poking her head up from behind the sofa.

“Steve do you want a pillow? Marty are you okay?' the 73-year-old actress said, before placing her hand on Gomez's shoulder. "Are you ok;"

"I'm fine, thanks Meryl, you're sweet," Selena Gomez replied, trying to hide her over-the-top excitement.

Steve Martin tweeted a delightful black-and-white cast photo of himself, Meryl Streep, Martin Short, Selena Gomez and Paul Rudd smiling for the camera and cuddling on the same sofa.

"Only Murders In The Building Season 3 filming has begun! A dream cast," she captioned the post.

Selena Gomez first expressed her desire to have Meryl Streep guest star on the series, telling Vogue in December: “I would choose the biggest guest of all. Probably Meryl or someone really amazing like her."

The third cycle of "Only Murders In The Building" is expected to be released on Hulu (and Disney+ in Greece) during 2023.
