USA Network has officially renewed their Bill Pullman-led crime anthology series The Sinner for a fourth season which is scheduled to debut sometime next year. Last season was led by Golden Globe winner Matt Bomer, who succeeded Jessica Biel and Carrie Coon.
“The Sinner has struck a chord with audiences with its signature ‘whydunnit’ style,” President of USA Network, Chris McCumber said in a statement. (via TVLine) “In Season 4, we’re excited to dig even deeper into the psyche of Bill Pullman’s beloved Detective Ambrose character, while introducing our audience to a compelling, completely new mystery.”
The Sinner Season 3 continued to follow Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.
The third season centered around Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Jamie, described as an upstanding Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of an accident. It will also feature Chris Messina (Sharp Objects) as Jamie’s college friend Nick along with Jessica Hecht, Parisa Fitz-Henley and Eddie Martinez.
Derek Simonds will executive producer The Sinner Season 3 and will serve as showrunner. Jessica Biel, who starred in Season 1 and has continued to executive produce, will return to EP alongside Michelle Purple via their company Iron Ocean. Charlie Gogolak, Willie Reale, and Adam Bernstein (who is directing the first two episodes) will also executive produce the Universal Content Productions project.
