This article discusses whether there will be a season 3 of One of Us Is Lying and its renewed or canceled status.
Created for television by Erica Saleh, the first season of One of Us Is Lying premiered in October 2021 and its second season just dropped on Peacock. The first season followed Addy (Annalisa Cochrane), Cooper (Chibuikem Uche), Nate (Cooper van Grootel), and Bronwyn (Marianly Tejada), aka The Murder Club, as they were trying to figure out who killed their classmate, Simon (Mark McKenna) and clear their names in the process. By the end of the first series, the group learned the truth about who murdered Simon but managed to get themselves into more trouble by actually becoming guilty of murder. In an equally thrilling second season, the Murder Club were reunited in trying to keep themselves out of prison while having to resolve another mystery: Who is Simon Says, a villain who claims to know all their secrets and is willing to expose them if they fail to comply with their demands?
In my positive review of season two, I concluded that “The show also managed to leave enough questions unanswered to warrant a third installment.” In what’s proving to become a yearly tradition, the second installment of One of Us Is Lying left viewers wanting for more with a chilling cliffhanger. But was it enough to ensure we’ll get to see more of the Murder Club’s adventures in 2023?
Will there be a season 3 of the Peacock series One of Us Is Lying – renewed or canceled status
Status: not renewed yet.
One of Us Is Lying is based on a 2017 Young Adults mystery novel by Karen M. McManus. The season of the televised adaptation was developed by NBC and premiered on Peacock on the 7th of October 2021 before moving to Netflix. In January 2022, due to the series’s popularity, it was renewed for a second season, which premiered on the 20th of October 2022. Unlike the first season, which was launched over three weeks, the second season premiered all eight episodes at once, which was great news for those of us who like to binge-watch.
At the moment, neither NBC nor Netflix confirmed the show’s renewal for a third act. However, considering that the second installment wasn’t announced until early 2022, there’s a good chance this will be the case with season three. The first episode of season two has a rating of 8.2 on IMDB, and the critical response so far has been mostly positive, yet it’s still too early to tell whether NBC greenlights another season of this mystery-box drama.
The second season of the series did a great job of resolving the mystery of Simon Says but left plenty of questions unanswered. So I would imagine at the very least they’d want to wrap up the story in a way that’s satisfying to the show’s growing fan base. While nothing’s been officially confirmed yet, we’re hoping to hear some good news come January.
