Peacock orders One of Us Is Lying adaptation of Karen M. McManus book

Have you read One Of Us Is Lying yet? If not, you’ll want to grab it right now to get ready for the Peacock series coming soon.

Peacock is starting to add more original content to its new streaming service. One of the new additions will be One Of Us Is Lying, recently picked up to series.

If you haven’t read the book yet, I’d recommend doing so now, especially if you love YA mysteries. Karen M. McManus has a way with words, leading us through a well-written, thrilling plot that has you guessing from start to finish. There are certainly clues along the way, but can you get past the red herrings?

It will be time to see how the book transforms to screen. Those who love Elite and Pretty Little Liars will certainly have a new show they need to binge-watch.

What we know about One of Us Is Lying so far

There isn’t too much about the series just yet. We know One of Us Is Lying will follow the book plot, which sees five students go into detention but only four make it out alive. Everyone has secrets, but which one of them murdered a fellow student? Was that student even murdered? Is one of them next?

We have a cast. Author of the book, McManus, shared an Instagram post with all the details. Instead of copying everything, we’re just going to leave you with the Instagram post below. You can also click on all the actors’ Instagram feeds to follow them if you want to stay up to date.

It’s official!!!! The One of Us Is Lying pilot has been given a series order, and will be coming to NBC’s new streamer, Peacock! 🥳 Since we are living in such uncertain times, I can’t yet tell you when the show will air, or how/where international viewers will be able to watch. So there’s a lot more to come, but in the meantime, give all the Bayview kids a follow if you haven’t already: Bronwyn: @marianlytejada Cooper: @chibuche Addy: @annalisacochrane Nate: @coopervangrootel_ Simon: @_mark_mckenna_ Maeve: @melissacollazo Jake: @barrettcarnahan210 TJ: @hichasestokes Keely: @zeniamarshall Vanessa: @sarailana Evan: @official_mbs Kris: @andreanthonyc Yumiko (Miko): @jayrtinaco And Janae isn’t on here, but she is played by the wonderful Jessica McLeod!

The co-creator of Elite is the showrunner for One of Us Is Lying. There’s certainly something that will get you excited. The Spanish private school drama is one of those shows that has built up mystery and intrigue. It’s taken us on a wild journey without dragging out the storylines. You’re not waiting five seasons to find out who killed a person like with Pretty Little Liars!

Right now, there isn’t a release date. The series has been in filming, at least for the pilot. Of course, filming isn’t happening right now for many TV shows. We’ll bring more news as soon as we have it.

I’d recommend reading the book for now. It’s worth it! And there’s a sequel because you’ll be finished with the book in a week.
