Suicide Squad and Carnival Row actress Cara Delevingne is joining Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez in the cast of the second season of Hulu’s hit series Only Murders in the Building, Deadline has revealed.
Delevingne will star as a series regular in the role of Alice, described as “a sophisticated art world insider who becomes enmeshed in the mystery”.
The actress and model has just wrapped filming on season two of Amazon’s Carnival Row, and it’s said that her commitments to Only Murders in the Building won’t interfere with a third season of the fantasy show should it be renewed.
Hulu’s most watched original comedy series, Only Murders in the Building stars Martin, Short and Gomez as three strangers with an interest in true crime who investigate a suspicious death in their affluent apartment building. The trio recently took to social media to announce the start of filming on the second season:

From the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman, “Only Murders In The Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living amongst them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it’s too late.
The first season of Only Murders in the Building is available to stream now on Hulu in the US and on Disney+ in the UK.
