USA Network will bring back its freshman drama series The Sinner for a second season this summer, the network said Friday.
The eight-episode series, from Universal Cable Productions, will once again star Bill Pullman as Detective Harry Ambrose, who in season two will investigate the case of an 11-year old boy who kills his parents with no apparent motive, according to USA.
Derek Simonds will return as executive producer and showrunner for The Sinner, with Jessica Biel, Michelle Purple and Charlie Gogolak also serving as executive producers, said the network.
“The Sinner was a huge success for USA Network,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment in a statement. “In our second season, we’ll follow Detective Ambrose as he tracks his newest 'why-dunnit,' while staying true to the unique, edge-of-your-seat storytelling that captivated audiences and critics alike.”
