The soundtrack – I say soundtrack, it was really just one catchy song – as well as Jessica Biel’s performance were superb, however, The Sinner season 2 in my opinion, was a shadow of its predecessor.
In all honesty, I gave up on it after the first few episodes, but if you did have the attention span to see it through, you’ll probably be excited to hear that season 3 is here now.
Bill Pullman returns as Detective Harry Ambrose, who becomes entangled in yet another sinister mystery while investigating a supposed routine traffic accident in Dorchester, New York.
The official synopsis for the The Sinner season 3 season reads: “The Sinner’s third instalment follows 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.”
Anyway, Netflix announced the news in a typically announcy way, on Twitter way back when:
Golden Globe Award winning actor Matt Bomer (The Normal Heart) joins the cast as father-to-be Jamie, a Dorchester resident who turns to Detective Ambrose for support following the accident.
We got a glimpse of him in a trailer last year, as his character becomes evermore intwined with Detective Ambrose.
Last year, Matt took to Instagram to share his joy at joining the cast, telling his followers: “Words can’t really explain the excitement I feel getting to be a part of a show that I’m such a fan of, not to mention working with this incredible cast.
“Also: it’s really nice to be coming home to @USA_Network – can’t wait!”
For me, the series lost it’s way by promoting Ambrose as the protagonist when really I didn’t think he had the charisma or chops to do so, especially when Jessica Biel’s performance was so good.
But then again, I suppose they had to do that given the way season 1 finished, as it left little or no room to develop her character further.
Still, Biel – who was nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and Critic’s Choice Award for her gripping role in the first season – will be an executive producer on this current season, so hopefully her talents have rubbed off.
I guess we’ll find out.
