USA Network also revealed a synopsis for the upcoming season, writing: "The Sinner’s third instalment follows Detective Harry Ambrose (Pullman) as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York.

“Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.”

It was also revealed that American Horror Story star Matt Bomer will join the cast, playing the role of expectant father, Jamie, who relies on Ambrose for help in the aftermath of the horrific accident.

On top of that, series one star Jessica Biel has been announced as a producer for the new offering with the actor previously revealing she feels ‘a lot of relief’ to have left her character Cora behind her.


Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said: “I love this character and at one time I really thought that maybe season two would be about Ambrose and Cora.

"But our writers exhausted all options, with every type of Cora storyline, and as a creative team we really looked at it very specifically and acutely and said 'This is just not what our show is.'

"So the answer is I don't know, it could be possible. But I'm not sure, I'm not sure it will ever happen."

The Sinner season 2 is available to watch now on Netflix UK - and if you’ve not seen it you should really get watching!
