We didn’t know what to expect from Only Murders in the Building on Hulu, but what we got was a series that is building a dedicated fandom.
Considering the series is as much a satire about the world of crime podcasts as it is a dramedy of sorts, we knew it would be an interesting watch. Then we learned that the cast would include Selena Gomez, Steve Martin, and Martin Short. We knew we had to watch.
But as dog lovers and people who are here to share all things dog (and pet) related news, we stuck around for Winnie the Bulldog. And clearly, we were not alone in sticking around, as the series has the honor of being part of our FanSided roundup of the biggest Fandoms of the year.

We are in no way surprised by Only Murders in the Building being included in the list of best Fandoms in 2021. The series was fun, it was thought-provoking, and it had a dog and a cat (both of whom had integral moments to the overall storyline). And yes, we kept coming back for the Winnie storyline.
Winnie the Bulldog made Only Murders in the Building our Fandom of the Year
Considering how the first season ended, and how we don’t know what happened to Winnie in those final moments, we can’t wait for Only Murders in the Building to return for even more crime podcast drama.
For now, we are celebrating the fact that the series is getting the attention it deserves within the Fandom of the Year, and as long as we get more of Winnie on our screens (and maybe a few more dogs) then we will keep coming back again and again.
But what do you think fellow dog lovers? Is Only Murders in the Building part of your Fandom? And are you as obsessed with Winnie the Bulldog as we are? Tell us your favorite Fandom (that includes a dog or other pet) in the comments below.
