I’ve never been shy about expressing my love for The Sinner, USA Network’s excellent crime anthology series which follows Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) as he uncovers the complexities behind seemingly normal cases. A new trailer for the upcoming third season of the series has been released which puts Ambrose into the middle of another case full of twists and turns.
The Sinner’s third season will follow Detective Ambrose as he begins a “routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.” Matt Bomer (Doom Patrol) will play Jamie, an expectant father and upstanding resident of Dorchester who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of the accident. Chris Messina (Sharp Objects) also stars as Nick, an old friend of Jamie’s who comes across as quite nefarious as he seems to have a bit of dirt on Bomer’s character.
The first season of The Sinner found Jessica Biel (Limetown) starring alongside Bill Pullman as Cora Tannetti, a young mother who brutally kills a man in public while at the beach with her family. As she seems to have no idea why she did it, Detective Ambrose investigates Cora’s past in order to discover the truth. Season two starred Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) as Vera Walker, the leader of a utopian commune, and saw Detective Ambrose pulled back to his hometown when an young boy poisons and murders his parents with no apparent motive, but Ambrose soon realizes that there’s nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from. There’s no official premiere date for the third season, but a previous teaser informed us that it will debut in 2020.
