The critics consensus on Season 2 reads, "In its second season, The Sinner establishes itself as an engrossing why-dunnit thriller series with staying power," and at the time of publishing this article, the score is a staggering 100 percent -- meaning that, of the 21 Tomatometer-approved reviews tabulated, all 21 critics gave The Sinner a positive (or "Fresh) review. In order for a TV show to earn the Certified Fresh rating, it must have a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after 20 reviews, including 5 reviews from Top Critics.
Bill Pullman returns to The Sinner as Det. Harry Ambrose this year to untangle a brand-new mystery centered around a boy (Elisha Henig) who shockingly murders his parents. Jessica Biel, who is currently up for an Emmy for her turn as Cora Tannetti last year, remains attached to the project as executive producer, and Carrie Coon (The Leftovers, Fargo) joins Season 2 as Vera Walker, a powerful and enigmatic commune leader.
