Here's Everything We Know About Netflix's 'The Sinner' Season 2
Halloween may have passed, but that doesn't mean you can't still have the shit scared out of you in the comfort of your own home.
Netflix is a particularly useful means of doing just this, thanks to series such as The Haunting of Hill House, and the return of The Sinner for its second season and promises to have viewers gripped once again.
While more of a psychologically thrillery crimey drama than a horror, season one had enough blood and creepiness to make it uncomfortable lone viewing.
After receiving glowing reviews from critics and viewers alike, it was no surprise to see the show renewed for a second season. However, the big question was how exactly it would be reprised following a fairly loose-end free conclusion to the first season.
*Look away now if you've decided right in this instant that you are going to plunge right into this programme when you get home and don't want to know anything whatsoever about what happened in series one and what happens in series two, despite having just clicked on an article called 'Here's Everything We Know About Netflix 'The Sinner' Series 2'.*
At the end of season one, Jessica Biel's character, Cora Tannetti, finally got to the bottom of why she brutally stabbed a man to death in the middle of the beach, thanks to the help of Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman).
The young mum underwent therapy to recall the traumatic memories that led her to commit the gruesome crime, and now Detective Ambrose is back to get to help solve another mysterious crime.
In the official trailer for season two, Ambrose is called by Heather Novak, who is asking for help with her dirty carpets... because she's Heather No Vac back... no?
OK she actually calls Ambrose back to his hometown in rural New York to ask him to help investigate the disturbing case of an 11-year-old boy who is suspected to have committed a double murder.
A synopsis of the new season reads: "In the wake of the Cora Tannetti case, Detective Harry Ambrose is called back to his hometown in distant rural New York to assess a disturbing new crime: an 11-year-old boy's horrific double-homicide & his seemingly inexplicable motive.
"As Ambrose comes to realise there's nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, his investigation leads him straight into the hidden darkness of his hometown and pitting him against those who'll stop at nothing to protect its secrets."
Biel, who received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in season one, will not reprise her character in season two, but will stay on as a producer.
Season two is available on Netflix in the UK and Ireland from Friday 9 November.
