Over the course of eight gripping and grizzly episodes, Jessica Biel (surely) exhausted her capacity for producing tears on command, shrieked, flailed and flagellated before us until everything about why Cora killed that man came to light.
With no more mystery to be squeezed out of this story-line, what on earth could a season two of The Sinner have in store for us? Who will be taking over from Jessica Biel? Will Jessica Biel be in it at all? Well, here's what you have to look forward to:
Rumour has it that Fargo and Avengers: Infinity War actress Carrie Coon is lined up to take the lead role in season to, as a secretive woman called Vera. She's being described as 'a formidable, mysterious woman who struggles between upholding the ideals of the community she leads and fulfilling her own desires.'
Season two is set to bring back the 'why dunnit', and focus on an 11-year-old boy's 'horrific double-homicide' and yet another 'seemingly inexplicable motive'. Who else should they call upon but Detective Harry Ambrose, of course, who must go back to his hometown in rural New York to help the police understand why a young boy would do such a thing.
'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,' we're told.
Biel is said not to be returning to star in the series, but will be on set as an executive producer. Certainly, Bill Pullman will be returning as Detective Harry Ambrose though, and we'll let you know more as soon as we know it.
