The series’ comedic approach to crime fiction, as well as the charming interplay between its leads, was loved by audiences, and due to this success, Hulu was quick to order a season 2 for Only Murders in the Building.
Season 2 will now see Oliver, Charles, and Mabel solving the new murder mystery while trying to clear their names from the crime and dealing with the negative press. The negative perceptions around Mabel’s discovery of the body complicate the case, but with new evidence showing up and the discovery of a secret tunnel within the Arconica, the trio comes across new clues and suspects, which “sends the investigation into a whole new direction.” Take a look at the trailer below.
Only Murders in the Building season 2 will also feature the return of Jan (Amy Ryan) and Teddy Dimas (Nathan Lane), two characters who were arrested for their implications in crime in season 1. Jan’s return, in particular, spells trouble for Charles as she might be out to seek revenge from him for putting her in prison. Season 1 introduced a romantic track between him and Mabel, but it remains unclear if that relationship would continue now that Mabel is being framed for murder. As observed in the trailer, one thing that has definitely improved since season 1 is the delightful camaraderie between Only Murders in the Building’s main cast. One of the reasons why the show so quickly transformed into a cultural phenomenon is because of the excellent chemistry between Mabel, Charles, and Oliver and the humor that came from the generational gap between the characters.
The third season of The Boys underway, audiences have seen character growth developed over a time jump following the end of season 2. With that setup in place, The Boys is primed to unleash their unique brand of musical theater to audiences.Given that Kimiko and Frenchie are dancing their way through a hospital, the scene likely takes place after the events of the last episode, which saw Kimiko gravely injured by Soldier Boy. And while a musical episode may seem out of place to some, The Boys offers a distinct environment where such a concept could play out logically.
The Boys is also not the first series of this type to venture into musical territory, as shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Flash, and even Lucifer have had musical episodes in the past. However, with The Boys already subverted expectations in numerous, often awe-inspiring and shocking ways, a musical episode feels well within the realm of possibility for the show.
The DC Extended Universe launched a new franchise in 2018 when Jason Momoa starred in Aquaman as Arthur Curry. This came after Justice League introduced viewers to his world and supporting characters, such as Amber Heard’s Mera. Amber Heard then returned to the DCEU to film scenes for Aquaman 2, even though her lawsuit with Johnny Depp raised questions about her future.
As part of the trial, Heard’s future with DC as Mera was once again brought into question. The actress said Warner Bros. originally did not want to bring her back for Aquaman 2, but she remained on board as Mera after Jason Momoa and director James Wan fought for her involvement. But ever since Heard admitted she wasn’t sure if her reduced role would make the final cut and the court sided with Johnny Depp, speculation continued to mount about Mera’s DCEU future. Now, a report from Just Jared claims that Warner Bros. will indeed cut Amber Heard from Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. No new actress has been found for the role as of this time. This is still a rumor, though, so there is a chance Amber Heard is not cut from Aquaman 2.
She debuted in Justice League and returned for Aquaman, but Heard also came back to film scenes for Zack Snyder’s Justice League too. Mera’s role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is already said to be reduced due to it focusing on Aquaman and Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) instead. Cutting Amber Heard and recasting Mera comes after the actress confirmed WB already released her from her contract and DC Films head Walter Hamada confirmed they considered recasting prior to production starting. While Amber Heard is planning to appeal the results of the Johnny Depp trial, it now appears that WB and DC are focusing on recasting Mera. It will not take long for fans to once again begin hoping it ends in a Game of Thrones reunion for Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke. Considering the chemistry concerns between Momoa and Heard, the studios will certainly prioritize finding someone that will be a more believable love interest for Aquaman moving forward.
