Netflix has announced that Will Arnett’s murder mystery comedy Murderville is officially getting a Christmas special episode titled “Who Killed Santa?” which will be available to stream on December 15th.
The announcement also came with the release of its first teaser trailer, which features our first look at Arnett’s return as Detective Terry Seattle, who will be joined by guest stars Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph.
Check out Murderville Christmas special teaser trailer below:
“Senior Detective Terry Seattle is back, and this time the case is critical,” reads the synopsis. “Along with his two celebrity guest stars, Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph, he’s on a mission to find out… who killed Santa Claus?
But here’s the catch: Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph aren’t getting the script. They have no idea what will happen to them. Together with Terry Seattle (and many surprises), they will have to improvise their way through the case… but it will be up to both of them to name the killer.”
Murderville is based on the popular BBC Three series Murder in Successville. Starring Arnett are Haneefah Wood as Chief Rhonda Jenkins-Seattle, Lilan Bowden as Doctor Amber Kang and Philip AJ Smithey as Detective Darren ‘Daz’ Phillips.
The first installment’s guest star lineup included Sharon Stone, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Annie Murphy and Marshawn Lynch.
Murderville is written and executive produced by Krister Johnson, who serves as showrunner. It is executive produced by Arnett, Marc Forman, Jonathan Stern, Peter Principato, Brian Steinberg. Tom Davis, Andy Brereton and James De Frond. It comes from Electric Ave, Abominable Pictures, Artists First and Sony Pictures Television.
