There might be a murderer living in the apartment complex, and Steve Martin, Selena Gomez and Martin Short are determined to find the potential killer in Hulu’s latest series, Only Murders in the Building.

Hulu renewed the comedic mystery for a second season back in September, and there’s just one episode left in the first season before we find out who — if anyone — is responsible for character Tim Kono’s death. The true crime-obsessed trio starts their own podcast in the midst of trying to solve their own at-home mystery, and, all spoilers aside, the show’s filled with cliffhangers that’ll leave you guessing who’s really guilty every single episode.
