One of Us is Lying is a new teen drama, which finds its roots in the best-selling novel of the same name by Karen M. McManus. The TV series premiered and ended in October 2021. About three months later, Peacock announced its return. Lisa Katz, a senior executive at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said:
“We are thrilled that One of Us is Lying’s compelling first season and has found flavor with our younger audience. The fandom behind the series is incredibly passionate and we can’t wait to deliver more twists that will leave viewers in suspense.”

The first season tells what happens when five high school students go through an hour of detention together and only four of them make it out alive. Each of them is suspect and has something to hide.
The mystery is solved over the course of the episodes and the season finale sets the stage for One of Us is Lying 2 season, with Addy, Cooper, Bronwyn, Nate and Janae receiving a message from a user who introduces himself as Simon. Simon says, who knows what happened to Jake:
Do as I tell you, or everyone will know what to have done.
According to Deadline, the second chapter will break away from McManus’ second novel, One of Us is Next, in which the story picks up a year after the events of the first book. As for the TV series, in fact, there will be no time jump.
