It is on television that Selena Gomez made her debut and it is also there that the American seems to have found the greatest success of her career, with the series “Only Murders in the Building”, which begins this Tuesday its second season. After all, it’s not every day that you get 100% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, the leading online review aggregator.

The production was successful and became one of the biggest comedy events on American television in the last year. With its charismatic trio, consisting of Gomez and veterans Steve Martin and Martin Short, the intrigue on a true-crime-obsessed podcast group effortlessly won over a massive following.

It helped her realize that her future, perhaps, is more on screens than on records. “To be honest, I think I’m still going to do one more album, but I really like being in this acting space and right now that’s what I would like to do,” the actress said. -singer in a video chat. “How many of my songs are you going to sing on the new album? Martin interrupts happily.

Gomez had to juggle recording the second season of “Only Murders in the Building” with an intense routine that included the release of the Spanish EP “Revelación”, cooking lessons for the reality show “Selena + Chef”, on HBO Max, and the preparation of a trio of films, including one from Frenchman Jacques Audiard, if negotiations and schedules align.

“I’m sure it’s not really healthy to be involved in so many projects. Just kidding. I found a balance point, everything is balance in life. I’m very young and I really like what I do, so I don’t think about it too much.”

The first season of “Only Murders in the Building” followed a trio of denizens of a lavish, gargantuan building in Manhattan, New York – the forgotten star of a crime drama, played by Martin, a Broadway director riddled with debts in crisis, played by Short, and a mysterious young woman who pretends to renovate the apartment of her rich aunt, played by Gomez.

Although they have little in common, they bond over a passion for true-crime podcasts after a death in the building. Qualified as a suicide by the police, the case arouses the curiosity of the protagonists, who decide to investigate what they believe to be a homicide. Off-screen too, the careers of the leading trio are disparate.

Sure, Martin and Short have met in comedy in the past, but Gomez belongs to a different generation and takes on very different roles from theirs. That’s where a lot of the humor in “Only Murders in the Building” comes from.

“I’m the one who learns the most in this job that I love and prefer, and it’s great to be surrounded by gentlemen like them who always encourage and advise me,” she says. “But I believe no matter how old you are, you’re still learning. I mean, I saw a close-up scene of Steve [Martin] one of these days and I learned what not to do,” jokes Short, in one of several interruptions in the interview that opened up the trio’s report.

It’s curious to think that originally “Only Murders in the Building” would follow a trio of old men. It was at the suggestion of one of the producers that Martin, also creator of the series, integrated the character of Gomez into the script. According to the veteran, the chemistry when they met on set was automatic, “tremendous luck.”

In this second season – and watch out for the spoiler, in case you haven’t seen the first – the protagonists have to face the accusation of having killed another resident of their building. They’ve already solved the first murder, but contrary to what they thought, there still seems to be a killer lurking in the hallways around them.

Gomez, Martin and Short promise that the new wave of episodes will again balance doses of humor and mystery and say that, once again, it will serve as a treat for fans of podcasts and true crime series, like them , who have had their great company in the genre in the isolated months of the pandemic.
