This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix and Peacock series One of Us Is Lying and its renewed or cancelled status.

One of Us Is Lying has had quite a journey. First of all, the TV series featured on Peacock, enjoying a weekly schedule release, which appears to be the popular approach outside of Netflix. And then, Netflix bought the rights in specific regions. But it’s obvious what Netflix was thinking. The series is adapted from the young-adult novel of the same name, authored by Karen M. McManus. It was a sensible move by the streaming service, especially when the first book spent 200 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The sequel book, One of Us Is Next was released in January 2020.

Premise of season 1

The series follows a tragedy. When five students endure detention, one of them dies, but the death is highly suspicious, and an investigation follows. The premise has a young adult mystery drama feel to it.

We gave season 1 a mixed review, stating:

“One of Us Is Lying is a highly binge-able teen murder mystery, but it lacks its source material’s memorable sense of character.”

Will there be a season 2 of One of Us Is Lying – renewed of cancelled status

Status: Renewed

NBC Universal has already confirmed that One of Us Is Lying will be renewed for a second season. Due to the license rights over the title, we would expect that it will debut on Peacock first before entering Netflix in any region.

We fully expect the second season to base itself on the sequel book, One of Us Is Next. If you are in America, expect the series to feature on Peacock only, but if you are outside the USA, then it will feature on Netflix at some point. Licensing and regions are as complicated as always.

Regardless, fans will be pleased that Peacock and Netflix have offered their faith in the material, and who knows, if the author continues expanding the book series, One of Us Is Lying could become a staple on our streaming services.
