In addition to Bill Pullman, season two stars Carrie Coon (The Leftovers, Fargo), Natalie Paul (The Deuce), Elisha Henig (Alex, Inc.), and Hannah Gross (Mindhunters).
“The Sinner was a huge success for USA Network,” stated Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “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.”
The Sinner Season 2 Plot: In season two Detective Harry Ambrose (Pullman) is lured back to his hometown in rural New York to assess an unsettling and heart wrenching crime — parents murdered by their 11-year-old son, with no apparent motive. As Ambrose realizes there’s nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, the investigation pulls him into the hidden darkness of his hometown. He’s pitted against those who’ll stop at nothing to protect its secrets — and a mysterious woman who proves to be a complicated, enigmatic piece to this haunting puzzle.
A Look Back at Season 1: The Sinner season one follows a young mother who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror, has no idea why. Detective Harry Ambrose finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive.Bill Pullman as Detective Lt.
