One of Us Is Lying Season 2 officially confirmed
We found out who killed Simon in the One of Us Is Lying Season 1 finale, but now there’s someone else sharing secrets. Season 2 is officially happening, so we should get some answers.
The first season followed the novel by Karen M. McManus. We found out who was responsible for Simon’s death, and it turned out to be none of the other students in detention with him. There was a much bigger conspiracy going on.
Once the teens got to the truth, they confronted one of the people actually involved. That led to another murder, and this time, the teens will work together to cover it up. Well, they might!
There is someone out there looking to blackmail them. Someone is pretending to be Simon to spread gossip and get a few people in trouble. One Of Us Is Lying Season 2 will be a chance to delve into that, and Deadline confirms that the season is happening at Peacock.
New showrunner for One of Us Is Lying Season 2
Darío Madrona was the showrunner for the first season. The season was great, but he’s stepping down as showrunner and will remain on as an executive producer.
Who’s taking over? Erica Saleh is the woman for the job. She wrote the pilot for the series, so she does have experience in adapting the novel and working with the show.
There isn’t a release date just yet. With the renewal only just coming through, we’re not expecting it until the end of 2022 at the earliest, but it’s probably going to be 2023.
What is the second season about?
The second season will follow the sequel One of Us Is Next, right? Not quite.
According to the Deadline report, the second season will pick up after the events of the first season finale. The second book actually picks up a year later. So, we’re going to get some original content, potentially to bridge the gap between the ending of the first book and the start of the second. It’s not clear if the events of the second book will be in the minds of the writers as they develop the second season.
There is a new mystery to solve at Bayview High. Who is the one sending the text messages?
