The Sinner follows a young mother who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the who or the what - but the why - as an investigator finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive. Together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche & the violent secrets hidden in her past.
USA Network announced today that The Sinner is being brought back for a second season. Originally billed as a limited series, the Jessica Biel-starring drama turned out to be a big hit for the cable network.
The first season of The Sinner starred Biel as a young mother who, after being overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a shocking act of violence with apparently no reason behind it. When an investigator, played by Bill Pullman, becomes obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive, the two end up on a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
Season 2 will follow Pullman's character on a new "why-dunnit" murder case. There is no word as to whether Biel's character will be a part of the new season, but if she is it will likely be in a much reduced capacity.
