We can’t wait to bring more mystery to the halls of Bayview High!”
Having that said, you might wonder what lies ahead of us and the characters (still alive) in One of Us is Lying Season 2. Let’s dissect the season 1 cliffhanger together and unveil what amusements will the anticipated second season bring to our screens. However, if you haven’t already watched the series; We would strongly recommend you to first watch it here, and come back to us later on. Major spoilers ahead:
Plot theories for the second season
Notably, One of Us is Lying is based on the best-selling novel by Karen M. McManus. Further, director Darío Madrona, the co-creator of Elite, has finely woven this novel into the series. And although there is a sequel to the novel which is set a year after the first series; One of Us is Lying season 2 will pick up the lead exactly where the first season left it, reports Deadline.
Towards the end of the first season, it is revealed that Simon tainted his own water with peanut oil as a part of a prank. Apparently, his partner in this notorious act was Jake, Addy’s boyfriend. After drinking this so-called dangerous soup, Simon enacted his death to scare his mates. The plan was, he would then wake up using one of his EpiPens, but in a dark turn of events, he never did. And Jack turned out to be half responsible for his mate’s death.
Jake performed this assassination, and smartly put the blame on Addy, who was cheating on him. Indeed, it was more of revenge than a planned murder. In the end, Addy decodes it all and cracks open Jack’s secret. We see Addy, Cooper, and Janae caught up in a fight with Jake- and boom- one of them shoots the poor boy! Hence setting the obvious plotline for season 2.
Who all will possibly return to the second season of One of Us is Lying
With Jake and Simon out of life, they will surely not return, unless some flashbacks are incorporated. Apart from them, we are likely to meet all the other characters and maybe some new faces as well. Hence, actors playing Cooper, Janae, Addy, Nate, and all the others as listed HERE will return to drive us crazy with their dark secrets and darker crimes.
Is there a release date or trailer?
