The trio also talked about balancing the comedic elements of the show while still staying true to its overall crime narrative. 

‘It’s always difficult to balance because you’re in a serious crime story, and then you wonder how big the comedy can get,’ Martin, 76, said. ‘And hopefully the editors and director guide you to the right degree of performance.’ 

The group also talked about some fun behind the scenes facts in the interview including that, despite his character’s obsession with dip, the 72-year-old Short doesn’t care for it much at all.

‘I don’t care about dips, personally,’ he said. The Three Amigos star also said they usually use ‘oatmeal or something fake’ while filming. 

The series’ sophomore outing also takes a deep dive into the characters’ backgrounds, and Gomez said she really felt like she could relate to her character Mabel’s.

‘I can’t help but maybe relate to [Mabel] in a way where I do feel a deep connection to my family and I had to move away from my family to do work,’ she admitted. 

Only Murders in the Building centers around three strangers who love true crime and find themselves wrapped up in one after there is a death in their apartment building.
