The series’ official Instagram page shared a first look at the three new cast members, dressed in the same clothing as the lead characters.

Season 3 of the series left viewers with a cliffhanger of, surprise surprise, another murder. The latest casualty was Sazz Pataki, played by Glee alum Jane Lynch.

The upcoming series is set to partially be set in Los Angeles, away from its usual filming location in the Arconia building in New York City.

Disney television group president Craig Erwich told Deadline: “Well, I’m very excited to see Steve, Martin and Selena take a little break from the apartment building and come to Los Angeles.

He continued: “In the same way that [co-creator] John Hoffman used the canvas of Broadway to tell what I think was one of the most unique seasons you’ve ever seen, the same unique Only Murders take will be applied to Los Angeles, which I’m really excited about.”

Only Murders in the Building season 4 is set for a 27 August release date. You can stream all episodes so far on Disney+ in the UK, and Hulu in the US.
