One of Us Is Lying Season 2: Everything You Need to Know

It is finally here! One of Us Is Lying, the fan-favorite book series (turned bingeable TV series!) is finally back, with all eight episodes of season 2 now streaming on Peacock. The hot new season (led by a new showrunner!) is gearing up to be extra juicy, with a ton of secrets just waiting to be revealed. Fans of the book series by Karen M. McManus know that there is still a lot to uncover on the hit TV series . . . but before you binge the new season, keep reading to discover everything you need to know about season 2 of One of Us Is Lying. . . .

What is new in season 2?

The season has a new showrunner, Erica Saleh, who is promising to bring all of the excitement. Saleh originally adapted the novel for Peacock, writing the pilot script for One of Us Is Lying, so we know our favorite show is in good hands.


Will the story follow the book series?

Not exactly. . . . While the second book in the series, One of Us Is Next, begins one year after the original book, season 2 of the Peacock original series picks up right where season 1 ends. Devotees of the book series may be asking: What other changes will be made?! And what is going to happen to our favorite characters? Which couples will get together and fall apart? We have a feeling that we will not be disappointed by Saleh’s vision for the show, and we are SO excited to be surprised right alongside everyone else this season!


Speaking of our favorite characters . . .

The original cast is returning to the halls of Bayview! Marianly Tejada, as Bronwyn, Cooper van Grootel as Nate, Annalisa Cochrane as Addy, and Chibuikem Uche as Cooper will all be returning to Bayview High to reprise their roles and bring new drama and new secrets to season 2 of the hit show.


Ready to binge?

We are, too! There is no better time to grab the One of Us Is Lying book series and read it with your friends. Compare and contrast the show and the books, and make predictions of how season 3 will unfold!

Season 2 of One of Us Is Lying is now streaming on Peacock.
