Eva Longoria joins cast of 'Only Murders in the Building 4'

American actor and producer Eva Longoria has joined the upcoming season of Only Murders in the Building.

She will portray the role of a recurrent character, playing an important role in the season's investigation. However, her storyline is being kept under wraps, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Flamin' Hot director is the second new character unveiled for the comedy's next installment, joining Molly Shannon, who will play a powerful Los Angeles entrepreneur who is lured into the murder investigation of Sazz Pataki (Jane Lynch).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Longoria and Shannon will star alongside the series' original cast, led by Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short. Meryl Streep, who made her first appearance in Only Murders season three, is also reprising her role as Loretta Durkin for the fourth season.

The fourth installment of the hit comedy show will pick up where the previous installment ended, with the murder of Charles' (Martin) longtime double Sazz, who was shot in the final moments of the previous season.

As the scene cut to black, Sazz could be seen writing something on Charles' kitchen floor with her own blood. It is unclear why she was slain, or whether Charles was the true target. But just because a favorite character has died does not mean fans will see less of her. It is precisely the contrary.

"We've loved writing Sazz so much, and the beauty of the show is you get a lot more time with the victims," co-showrunner John Hoffman told The Hollywood Reporter in a season three postmortem. "They're not gone when some ill fate happens to them. And that's, I think, also why Jane said she was excited because it's a good opportunity to go deeper with Sazz and find out what the whole big life and everything else was with her and the world of stunt doubling. (ANI)
