Hulu’s true crime inspired comedy series Only Murders in the Building is back with another season, and another murder. A year after finding Bunny’s killer and clearing their names, Oliver has gotten a second chance at Broadway, directing the show Death Rattle. On opening night, the star Ben Glenroy drops dead, leaving our favorite trio of crime solvers to figure out who killed him and why. 

Selena Gomez, Steve Martin, and Martin Short are joined by many talented actors this season, including some familiar faces like Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd. Here are the characters (and potential suspects) you need to know in season 3, and where you’ve seen these actors before.

Selena Gomez is Mabel Mora

Mabel Mora is one of the youngest residents of the Arconia, staying in her aunt’s apartment in exchange for fixing it up. Before meeting Charles and Oliver, Mabel was a bit of a loner, but thanks to their podcast she has found a way to let people in again and overcome her past trauma. Despite being decades younger than her crime-solving partners, Mabel’s keen instincts and intelligence make her a worthy detective.

Mabel is played by Selena Gomez, who is most known for playing Alex Russo in Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, though she has since done her best to break away from her Disney Channel days by appearing in movies like Spring Breakers, The Dead Don’t Die, and The Fundamentals of Caring. Outside of acting, Gomez is known for her music, her cosmetics company Rare Beauty, and her cooking show Selena + Chef.
