Season three of the popular Netflix crime drama will see Detective Harry Ambrose, played by the excellent Bill Pullman, as he investigates what appears at the beginning to be a routine car crash.
Now, it'd be a pretty boring series if it just turned out to be an ordinary car crash, wouldn't it?
Luckily for the viewer, it isn't any old road traffic accident, an interview with one of the witnesses tips Ambrose off that there might be something more sinister at play, and - as you might expect - he quickly finds himself digging deep into one of the most disturbing and dangerous cases of his career.
So, the new season will feature eight episodes, and it also has some exciting new additions to the cast, as well.
Matt Bomer, who you might remember from Will & Grace or Doom Patrol, will star alongside Pullman as Jamie, a resident of the town of Dorchester in upstate New York where the action takes place.
Speaking after his casting was announced, Bomer said: "Words can't really explain the excitement I feel getting to be a part of a show that I'm such a fan of, not to mention working with this incredible cast.
"Also: it's really nice to be coming home to [USA Network] - can't wait!"
At least two of the episodes of season three have been directed by Adam Bernstein, who has experience of directing episodes of Breaking Bad and Fargo, so should slot nicely into the universe of The Sinner with absolutely no problems.
After making its debut over in the USA, The Sinner was voted the best show on cable TV for the whole of 2017.
Jessica Biel - who is an executive producer on this latest series - also garnered numerous award nominations for her performance.
Whilst she's behind the camera for this latest outing, alongside showrunner Derek Simonds, we can still expect to see some stellar turns from Pullman and co.
There's more good news, too. A fourth season is already planned.
TV Line reported that USA Network president Chris McCumber confirmed the commission in a recent interview. He said: "The Sinner has struck a chord with audiences with its signature 'whydunnit' style.
"In Season 4, we're excited to dig even deeper into the psyche of Bill Pullman's beloved Detective Ambrose character, while introducing our audience to a compelling, completely new mystery."
That'll probably be out at some point in 2021.
Until then, get stuck into binging the latest season on Netflix as of today.
