The rumours began to pick up speed when composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman told Variety that they were involved in production for OMITB.
“We’ve worked on the next season of Only Murders in the Building,” Shaiman told the publication, he and Wittman are longtime collaborators and have composed for countless musicals, movies and TV series.
The dynamic duo are most famous for their work originating the music and lyrics to the Broadway version of Hairspray The Musical.
He continued to tease the upcoming project: “We’re not allowed to say anything more than that, but you could probably do that math.”
The pair have even worked with Martin Short before, which has added even more weight to the Only Murders rumours, they collaborated on the Broadway show Fame Becomes Me in 2006.
Of course, Selena Gomez is a star of the screen and the chart so we can't think of a better crossover than having her perform as Mabel Mora on the show.
In fact, the 'Rare' songstress has spoken about doing a musical episode before, she revealed on Deadline's Crew Call podcast that she would have to be cautious in making the move.
"I love being Mabel and I love that she's an extension of me but she isn't necessarily me. Sometimes my worry– not to say that I'm opposed to it in any way, shape, or form– just my worry is that it might just kind of turn into a pop star thing and that's clearly not Mabel," she put it honestly.
Only time will tell, Only Murders in the Building's third season drops on Hulu and Disney+ on August 8.
