It’s back to Bayview High for Peacock. The One of Us is Lying series has been renewed for a second season by the streaming service.
A Young Adult drama series, the One of Us is Lying TV show stars Annalisa Cochrane, Chibuikem Uche, Marianly Tejada, Cooper van Grootel, Barrett Carnahan, Melissa Collazo, Jessica McLeod, and Mark McKenna. Based on the novel of the same name by Karen M. McManus, the story revolves around five high school students — Simon (McKenna), Addy (Cochrane), Cooper (Uche), Bronwyn (Tejada), and Nate (Grootel) — who come for detention but one doesn’t make it out alive.
