One of Us Is Lying is the latest mystery drama series to be released on Netflix, and fans have been captivated by the twists and turns that take place at Bayview High School.
Season one is based on the same-titled YA mystery novel by Karen M. McManus, to give you a quick refresher. Simon dies after going into anaphylactic shock due to an allergic reaction. The film follows five Bayview High students – Bronwyn, Addy, Nate, Cooper, and Simon – who find themselves in detention together. In the following episodes, the investigation is focused on determining who is responsible for Simon’s death, with each of the characters in detention having their own opportunity and reason to want him dead.
Season one of One of Us Is Lying came to a close with some unexpected revelations about what happened to Simon, leaving viewers eagerly awaiting more in season two. So, here’s what we know so far about the upcoming season of One of Us Is Lying.
When Was One Of Us Is Lying Season 2 Confirmed, And Will It Come To Netflix?
The good news is that One of Us Is Lying has been officially renewed for a second season!
Series one first aired on NBC Universal’s US streaming service Peacock in October 2021, and the second season will premiere on Peacock in October 2022. It will be available on Netflix internationally in February 2022, four months after its initial release.
The NBC Universal/Peacock network announced in January 2022 that One Of Us Is Lying had been renewed for a second season, according to the publication Variety. Consequently, given that series two will undoubtedly be broadcast on Peacock, we can expect it to be broadcast on Netflix shortly after.
With the announcement came the news that Erica Saleh, who adapted the novel for television, will return as the show’s executive producer for season two, replacing Daro Madron, who will remain on as an executive producer.
When Is One Of Us Is Lying Season 2 Expected To Be Released?
Unfortunately, there is currently no confirmed release date for the game. One of Us Is Lying season one was released on Netflix four months after it was released on US streaming service Peacock, so we can expect season two to follow a similar pattern – but keep an eye out for it!

Who Will Star In One Of Us Is Lying Season 2?
There has been no official word on which cast members will be returning for the second season of One of Us Is Lying as of yet. Universal Content Productions president, Beatrice Springborn, teased “an exciting next chapter in the wild and fun story of the Bayview Four,” which leads us to believe that the four surviving detention attendees will be making a comeback.
That means Marianly Tejada (Bronwyn), Cooper van Grootel (Nate), Annalisa Cochrane (Addy), and Chibuikem Uche (Cooper) will almost certainly reprise their roles in the upcoming season.
Unfortunately, due to the deaths of Mark McKenna (Simon) and Barrett Carnahan (Jake) in season one, it is unlikely that they will return in a proper capacity. Although there is plenty of room for flashbacks, it is possible that these two characters will appear as well.
What Can We Expect From One Of Us Is Lying Season 2?
At the conclusion of Season 1, it was revealed that Jake was in fact responsible for Simon’s death. Before Jake made the decision to remove the epi pen from the nurse’s office and frame Simon’s cheating girlfriend Addy for murder, they had been playing a sick prank on each other for a couple of weeks before. Nevertheless, Jake died as a result of the resulting chaos, with Cooper, Janae, and Addy disposing of Jake’s body while the rest of the group believed he was on the run.
Consequently, when it comes to what will happen in season two, there is plenty of opportunity for the truth about Jake’s death to be revealed.
It has been reported by Deadline that season two will begin immediately following the events of the season one finale. This is in contrast to McManus’ sequel novel, One of Us Is Next, which takes place one year after the events of One of Us Is Lying and is set in the same world.
According to Lisa Katz, the president of scripted content at NBC, when asked about the upcoming series, she said, “It gives us great pleasure to know that the gripping and binge-worthy first season of One Of Us Is Lying has struck such a deep chord with our YA audience. The fanbase for the series is extremely passionate, and we can’t wait to continue to deliver twists and turns that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats in the coming episodes.”
Season two will be shot in New Zealand with Erica Saleh serving as showrunner, according to Universal Content Productions president Beatrice Springborn. “Returning to New Zealand to shoot with Erica [Saleh] as showrunner is an exciting next chapter in the wild and fun story of the Bayview Four,” she continued.
Erica Saleh, the showrunner, teased that there would be more mystery “We are overjoyed with how season one was received, and we are even more thrilled that we will be able to continue our story in season two. We can’t wait to introduce even more intrigue to the halls of Bayview High School!”
In a shocking turn of events, it is revealed that Addy’s boyfriend Jake was the one who murdered Simon and committed suicide. In the aftermath of Simon informing him that Addy was having an affair with his friend TJ, he sought retribution (George Ferrier)
