Where To Watch ‘Only Murders In the Building’, Streaming Options Available


One show that got everyone talking in 2021 was Only Murders In the Building. The plot revolves around three residents of the Arconia building in New York City: Washed-up former TV detective Charles Haden-Savage (Steve Martin), failed theater director scrambling to make ends meet, Oliver Putnam (Martin Short), and the mysterious twenty-something Mabel (Selena Gomez). The three meet and bond over their love for true crime, specifically the podcast “All is Not OK in Oklahoma.” When they find themselves at the center of their own murder investigation, nothing prepares them (or the audience) for the secrets, twists, and danger that lies throughout the Arconia building.

We’ve put together this quick guide that answers every question you might have about what Only Murders in the Building is all about, where to watch the hit TV series, where to stream it, and more.

What Is Only Murders In The Building About?

The murder that sets the events of the show in place is of Tim Kono (Julian Cihi) a young man who works in finance and is a fellow resident of the Arconia. When a fire alarm is set off in the building, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel sneak back inside to discover Tim’s lifeless body, but the Police immediately think it’s a suicide. The trio know that there is more going on and whilst they are investigating in real-time, they start a podcast of their own: “Only Murders in the Building.” As the story unfolds, they learn that Tim’s murder might be linked to the death of a teenager in the Arconia years before and that Mabel might know more than she is letting on.

There’s a lot more to the show than Tim Kono’s murder. Charles, Oliver, and Mabel all get time to shine on their own and each of their characters gets an introspective look into how they got to be entangled in this murder. With love interests, financial issues, and hardship with letting go of the past, the three main characters are anything but one-dimensional.
