There's no word yet on whether Mabel's love interest Tobert (Jesse Williams) will be returning, however series showrunner John Hoffman has said he would love to have Jesse Williams back.

Given season four is likely to revolve around solving the murder of Sazz, played by Jane Lynch, it's possible Lynch will also return for some throwback scenes.

What might happen in Only Murders in the Building season 4?

We don't have much info about the plot just yet, but we do know that the series will be leaving the the Arconia building and New York City for the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles!

In an interview with Deadline, Disney Television Group President Craig Erwich said, "I’m very excited to see Steve, Martin and Selena take a little break from the apartment building and come to Los Angeles.

"So in the same way that 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." Can't wait!

Plus, in the season three finale of Only Murders in the Building, Mabel, Charles and Oliver unveil Donna and Cliff as Ben Glenroy's killers. Then, right when we think everything is OK, Charles’ long-time friend and stunt double, Sazz Pataki (Jane Lynch) is shot dead.

So, who shot Sazz? Plus, as we can safely assume the bullet was meant for Charles, who wants him dead? We need to know!
