One of the breakout TV shows last year was The Sinner starring Jessica Biel as a young mother who impulsively decides to murder someone on the beach one day. It proved a hit for the USA Network as well as on Netflix this side of the pond.

Even though the story was concluded for Jessica Biel's character at the end of season one, the show will return once more but this time with a brand new case for Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) to get to grips with.

The synopsis reads: "In the wake of the Cora Tannetti case, Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) is called back to his hometown in distant rural New York to assess a disturbing new crime: an 11-year-old boy's horrific double-homicide & his seemingly inexplicable motive.

"As Ambrose comes to realise there's nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, his investigation leads him straight into the hidden darkness of his hometown and pitting him against those who'll stop at nothing to protect its secrets."

Watch the slightly terrifying first trailer below:

The Sinner season two will also star Carrie Coon and Elisha Henig and will once again be executive produced by Jessica Biel.

It's set to premiere on the USA Network on August 1st and hopefully not too much later on Netflix here.
