Steve Martin kickstarted his career in the 1970s as a stand-up comedian. He went on to become one of the most successful comedy actors. Martin starred in hits such as Three Amigos, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, and Father of the Bride. He recently spoke about his inevitable retirement.

Martin currently stars in the Hulu hit show Only Murders in the Building. The show scored an Emmy nomination, which marked the actor’s reinvention. Selena Gomez and Martin Short also star in the series which is also produced by Martin.

The star spoke about his retirement plans during an interview. He announced that he would eventually retire from taking on any big projects as the series comes to an end. However, he has a different perspective to offer on the announcement.

Martin spoke with E!’s Laverne Cox on Emmy’s red carpet alongside Short. He explained that he won’t just wrap up his career after the series ends. His retirement is still going to be an active one.

It’s a little overstated. They asked me, ‘Do you think about retirement?’ I said, ‘Well this is it. I’m doing a television show, I’ve got a book coming out and I’m touring with [Short]. That kind of is my retirement — that’s what it’s going to look like.


Only Murders in the Building is set to come back with its third season. While his clarification could be about providing the show with the right kind of press, fans are still relieved to know that the legend is going to stick around in a healthy capacity.
