Only Murders In The Building, the Hulu comedy starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, could remain on ABC in addition to streaming. The Hulu original premiered on its sibling linear network earlier this month, coming as the network had a largely unscripted fall slate due to the Hollywood strikes. It remains on the streaming service. ABC and Hulu boss Craig Erwich, speaking at the TCA press tour, said: “We’re certainly open to doing it with Only Murders again and or other shows. When we look at both ABC and Hulu, it’s one big chessboard, so you’re able to see where certain audiences watch certain shows, some migrate from one platform to another. Only Murders was really a perfect show to put on ABC.
As it prepares to start returning new episodes of its strike-delayed series starting in February, the Alphabet net will fill the January gap with episodes of Only Murders in the Building on Tuesdays. All 10 episodes of the Hulu show’s Season 1 will air back-to-back, starting with the first three episodes on Tuesday, Jan. 2.
Only Murders in the Building has been renewed for a fourth season by Hulu. Now that the WGA strike is over, the writers room is expected to reconvene shortly. The Season 3 premiere of Murders had the most viewers of any scripted Hulu Original in 2023.
Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building leapt onto Nielsen’s streaming charts for the week of August 7 to August 13. With the debut of Season 3, the series racked up 719M viewing minutes, making it to No. 9 on the overall Top 10 and No. 3 among streaming originals. According to Nielsen, the audience for Only Murders was a “carbon copy” of the series that’s been dominating streaming for the past eight weeks — Suits. That series had another impressive week with 3B viewing minutes once again across Netflix and Peacock.
The only Hulu original series that rank in the 10 most in-demand titles in its library in July are Only Murders In The Building and The Orville according to Parrot Analytics‘ data, which takes into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other engagement. Both shows released episodes weekly throughout July.
