The Story May Slightly Deviate from the Books
The season 1 finale solved the mystery of a key character’s death, while setting up a second season by leaving the audience with a major cliff-hanger. Devoted readers already know that the second book in the series, One of Us Is Next, begins one year after the original story. However, insiders are sharing that season 2 of the Peacock original series will instead pick up right where season 1 of the show ended. This change might surprise some diehard readers, but the good news is that we all get to be surprised by the twists and turns of the new season together! What is going to happen to our favorite characters?! What changes will be made?! This is a great time to discuss with your friends, start a book club, and share what you hope stays the same from the book series before the new season drops on Peacock.
The Cast Is Set to Return
The good news is that all cast members are set to return! Marianly Tejada , Cooper van Grootel, Annalisa Cochrane, and Chibuikem Uche will all be returning to Bayview High to reprise their roles and bring new drama and new secrets to the second season of the hit show.
A New Showrunner Is Set to Lead the Show
Erica Saleh, who adapted the novel for Peacock and wrote the pilot script for One of Us Is Lying will be the showrunner for season 2. We can’t wait to see where Erica’s vision takes the story in the brand-new season. Season 1 ended with so many unanswered questions that we can’t wait to discover what season 2 has in store for the students at Bayview High.
In the Meantime
We recommend bingeing the first season of One of Us Is Lying on Peacock. And if you have yet to read the books (and were introduced by the addictive teen drama!), then there is no better time to grab the One of Us Is Lying book series. One of Us Is Next brings an entirely new mystery as a ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up at Bayview. There is someone determined to keep Simon’s legacy alive, and all the rules have changed. You can grab a boxed set of One of Us Is Lying, and One Of Us Is Next, and immerse yourself in all the drama, suspense, and, gossip before season 2 drops on Peacock.
