Oscar winner Meryl Streep has joined the filming of the third season of Only Murders in the Building.
Comedian Steve Martin, screenwriter and lead actor of the mystery comedy series, posted a photo on Twitter. In the picture himself, Selena Gomez, Martin Short and Paul Rudd with Streep look in a good mood into the camera. Steve Martin wrote: "Only Murders in the Building Season 3 has begun filming! A cast to be dreamed of."
Gomez shared a funny video from the set, which begins with herself, Martin and Short greeting their fans and asking, "Honestly, can this get any better?" She then pans her camera to Rudd, who replies, "I think this can get a little bit better, though." Gomez turns her camera back on herself and opens his mouth in mock surprise when Streep suddenly comes up behind her couch appears.
In the first season of the Hulu series, Martin, Short and Gomez played three neighbors who want to solve the murder of another resident in their New York apartment building. Last summer, it was announced that Rudd ("Ant-Man"), who made a cameo appearance on the show at the end of season two, would also return for the new episodes in season three.
The series creators have not yet announced whether Streep will appear as a guest star or as a permanent member of the ensemble. "Only Murders in the Building" can be seen in Germany at Disney.
