Pakistani-American actor and stand-up comedian Kumail Nanjiani will appear in a recurring role that is mostly being kept under wraps, though his character will be integral to this season’s investigation. The Hulu series is led by Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Kumail joins Eugene Levy, Eva Longoria, and Molly Shannon as the new cast members. Meryl Streep is also set to reprise her role from season three of the show.

Kumail’s role marks his return to Hulu. He previously starred in the limited series ‘Welcome to Chippendales’ on the platform, which earned him an Emmy nomination. Season four of the hit comedy show will pick up where the previous instalment ended, with the murder of Charles’ (Steve Martin) longtime double Sazz, who was shot in the final moments of the season three finale. As the scene cuts to black, Sazz could be seen writing something on Charles' kitchen floor with her blood. It is unclear why she was killed or whether Charles was the true target.

 Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez, and John Hoffman executive produce the show along with Dan Fogelman and Jess Rosenthal. Created by Steve and John, ‘Only Murders in the Building’ received much praise from the audience for its previous three seasons.
