The show's stars seem to have really bonded during their three years together.


  • OMITB has been renewed for a fourth season.
  • Fans love the show for the great dynamics between the main characters.
  • Only Murders in the Building are friends in real-life despite their enormous age difference.

It's been almost two months since season three of Only Murders in the Building wrapped, and Hulu's most popular comedy-mystery show has been renewed for a fourth season. But fan excitement for the series shows no signs of slowing down.

Starring Selena Gomez, Martin Short and Steven Martin, OMITB is best known for the chemistry between its main characters, who share a passion for true crime podcasts and become friends by accident while investigating suspicious deaths in their apartment building. While their on-screen friendship continues to draw in more viewers each season, the actors' real-life relationship is just as endearing.

Friendship As the Bridge Over Age Gap

As unlikely as it may seem, Selena Gomez, 31, is good friends with her Only Murders in the Building co-stars Steve Martin, 78, and Martin Short, 73. Just recently, the actress took to her Instagram page to commemorate their on-screen and off-screen friendship with a series of photos showing her amusing interactions with the iconic actors.

The relationship between the OMITB stars is commendable to say the least, but more importantly, it seems so natural and easy that you can't help but wonder how Gomex, Short, and Martin could have hit it off in the first place.

Getting Acquainted

According to Selena, she and her future co-stars didn't meet in person until the first season of Only Murders in the Building was being filmed, due to Covid restrictions. Because of this, they didn't have much time to get to know each other, so Gomez was anxious to work with them. But in reality, the actors' introduction went swimmingly.

'The moment I got on set they made me feel included. They asked questions about my character and they valued my opinion. Eventually they kind of just took me under their wing and picked on me and made me laugh and had words of wisdom when I needed them. All of the fear of me feeling like I would be alone went away, and now they're my guys,' the Emmy-nominated actress said in an interview prior to the release of season 3 of OMITB.

Now, Selena considers Martin and Short not only friends, but mentors who she looks up to.

'Working with Steve and Marty, I was terrified at first, but relieved that comedy happened to be in my comfort zone. If anything, they've helped sharpen my skills. I hope to be as funny as they are one day. They are just really gifted at creating a situation out of nothing and making people laugh and I admire that deeply,' Gomez shared.
