Attention all: there will be a new face living in the Arconia, and we can't keep it together. The one and only Paul Rudd is joining Only Murders in the Building for season three after making a surprise appearance in the season two finale! Just when we think the cast couldn't get any better, it clearly does. So, where exactly does Rudd fit in the iconic Arconia building? Well, let's find out...

Now that the second season of Only Murders in the Building has come to a close, we finally got some of the answers we deserved - but naturally are left with a million more. The hit Hulu series took over television since its release last summer and has received an immense amount of praise for its unbelievable cast, intriguing storyline, and never-ending cliffhangers! The 17-time Emmy nominated series has officially closed out its second season, but amongst all the surprise reveals, we got one we were far from expecting: Paul Rudd.

For those who haven't tuned in to the season finale, beware. During the season's finale, Rudd made a guest appearance as Broadway star Ben Glenroy. His character played a part in Oliver's (Martin Short) new play alongside Charles (Steve Martin), but after one line, he collapsed and died on stage. So naturally, we're all wondering where this is going to go - but luckily, the show's co-creator John Hoffman has given us some much-deserved answers. "Paul Rudd, after making an auspicious entrance into the world of our show at the end of season two as Ben Glenroy, is someone we clearly want to know more about," Hoffman teased to Variety. "And see in our upcoming season three - as he is a clear source of many upcoming questions and, as ever with our show, many twists yet to come!"

So now that it's confirmed he will be joining on for season three, we can't even imagine the rest of the roster! The show already has some of the best names in Hollywood, from the OG trio to its long list of incredible celebrity cameos: Tina Fey, Amy Schumer, Cara Delevingne, Jane Lynch, and many, many more. So now that Paul Rudd is tapped for season three of Only Murders in the Building, we can't wait to see what happens this time around... Stay tuned.
