The USA Network announced a third season pickup of the popular limited series “The Sinner.” Bill Pullman will return to reprise his role as Detective Harry Ambrose in the new season, but the show will add new series regular Matt Bomer (“Doom Patrol,” “Will & Grace”). Bomer is set to play Jamie, an upstanding Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of an accident.
According to the network, “The Sinner’s” third season follows Detective Harry Ambrose (Pullman) as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. The story picks up when Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.
“The Sinner” will bring back Derek Simonds as executive producer and showrunner, Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple as executive producers through their company Iron Ocean, and Charlie Gogolak as executive producer. Willie Reale will serve as executive producer. Adam Bernstein (“Fargo,” “Breaking Bad”) is set to direct the first two episodes and will also executive produce.
The limited series has always been a hit on USA Network. “The Sinner’s” debut season was 2017’s top new cable series and earned an Emmy nomination for Jessica Biel. The show also received two Golden Globe nominations for Biel, along with two Critics’ Choice Award nominations.
Season two earned a SAG nomination for Bill Pullman and a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Carrie Coon.
USA Network stopped short of announcing a premiere date at this time, but more information will be announced at a later date. We might get some new casting information when the show enters into production, along with a few teaser trailers for “The Sinner’s” third season.
Earlier this month USA Network announced that it will produce an adaptation of “Brave New World,” based on Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking 1932 novel. That series was adapted for television by David Wiener, with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor. Wiener will also serve as series showrunner. Owen Harris (“Black Mirror: San Junipero”) will direct the first episode and executive produce the series.
