Everyone's a suspect in season 2, even our beloved trio of sleuths. If Charles (Steve Martin), Mabel (Selena Gomez), and Oliver (Martin Short) thought solving a murder for their podcast was tough in season 1, they’re definitely not ready for being the No. 1 suspects.
The trio deals with more podcast fame too. Not everyone is excited. "Mabel's a little put off by the idea of continuing to dive into the mystery of the murder," Gomez says. "She ends up having this turn where she really wants to be free of it.”
It also doesn't help that all evidence points to Mabel. Soon enough, however, Charles and Oliver get pulled in as well. "Now we have rival podcaster who continually casts suspicion on us — and by the way, it doesn't hurt that that's played by Tina Fey,” says Martin.
Mabel's character evolution surprised Gomez the most. "She is wanting to shed her past,” she says. “Then she meets Alice, Cara [Delevingne]'s character, and she ends up falling in love with her."
Since season 1's murderer turned out to be the main love interest, should we be extra suspicious of Alice? "Be suspicious of everyone, because the show is," says Martin. "Every time a new character comes on, we're very suspicious of that character."
