Will there be a season 4 of The Sinner?
Good news for fans of the show, The Sinner will be returning for season four.
President of the USA Network, on which The Sinner shows, said that the show “has struck a chord with audiences with its signature ‘whydunnit’ style”.
Lead actor Bill Pullman suggested their might be a long wait until a season four comes to fruition.
He said: “That’s still in the works, and now probably more than ever because of all this production that got arrested and isn’t happening.
“They probably already would have started in the writers room, and they can’t [because of the coronavirus]. All those things are still in play, but there’s a lot of ambiguity about a lot of things, and that’s one of them.”
Each season of The Sinner is an isolated story[/caption]
What is The Sinner about?
The show is an anthology series, meaning that each season is an isolated story.
They are united by the main character, Detective Harry Ambrose.
Award-winning season one centred around a young woman named Cora Tannetti, played by Jessica Biel.
The series opens with Tannetti violently stabbing a man during a family outing on a beach full of people.

Tannetti claims to have no memory at all of why she committed the crime, or if she even knew the man.
Detective Harry Ambrose is called to get to the bottom of the bizarre case.
During the course of his investigation, Cora makes some horrific realisations about her past.
Suppressed memories resurface, and Cora must confront past traumas in order to understand her actions.
Season two focuses on an 11-year-old boy named Julian[/caption]
In season two, Ambrose is called to investigate the murder of a couple by their 11-year-old son, Julian. As the series unravelled, it was revealed that there was more at play, and the victims were not Julian’s real parents after all.
Ambrose’s investigation leads him to reckon with disturbing truths about people he thought he knew.
Season three sees Ambrose investigate a fatal car crash in Upstate New York.
Although the crash initially seems like a tragic accident, the investigation takes a sickening twist and main character Jamie (played by Matt Bomer) becomes the centre of a brutal murder investigation.
