Instead of the usual loosey-goosey “limited event series,” USA Network has billed The Sinner TV show an “eight episode close-ended series.” That makes sense, because it is based on a novel by Petra Hammesfahr. Still, if it is a hit with fans and earns big ratings, USA could always continue it, perhaps as an anthology that focuses on a different crime. 13 Reasons Why, which was originally planned as a single installment, is getting a second season on Netflix, and Big Little Lies may return to HBO, as well. Will The Sinner be renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A USA crime drama, The Sinner stars Jessica Biel, Bill Pullman, Christopher Abbott, Patti D’Arbanville, Grayson Eddey, Jacob Berger, Adrienne Lovette, Spenser Granese, Rileigh McDonald, Jordana Rose, Lindsay, Torrey, and Rebecca Wisocky. The series centers on Cora Tannetti (Biel). When overwhelmed by an incomprehensible burst of rage, this young wife and mother commits an astonishingly violent act, which even she cannot understand.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
