Suspense thriller series have seen a constant growth in terms of viewership in the recent years. The whole idea of getting to know the truth by the end of the show intrigues many. Netflix USA up till now has listed many such thrillers that has been well appreciated by the audience. The recent addition being One of Us Is Lying. The series is based on the same-named New York Times best-selling novel by Karen M. McManus.

Is One of us is lying available internationally?
One of us is lying has just arrived on Netflix globally. It has made its way to the United Kingdom, India, South Korea, Brazil, Japan, and other countries. Despite being branded as a Netflix Original, even now it is only available in certain Netflix territories.
Netflix characterizes the mystery adolescent series based on Karen M. McManus’ 2017 novel as follows:
“As a cat-and-mouse murder case unfolds, detention pulls five dissimilar high teenagers together, but a killing — and secrets — keep them together.”
Licensing from companies like Universal, Disney, and Warner Brothers is becoming increasingly rare. The reason for this is that all of these large distributors are holding back foreign rights in order to bolster their own Netflix competitors. Peacock does have a presence in nations such as the United Kingdom, but it has chosen to place its content on Netflix now giving audience a wider range of options to chose from.
Will One of Us Is Lying be available on Netflix in the United States?
Previously, when Universal had licensed shows to Netflix as an Original title for worldwide distribution, they eventually made their way to Netflix US. Given Peacock’s American home, it’s unlikely to happen here with One of Us Is Lying, unless Universal decides to split the title between Peacock and Netflix, which again is highly unlikely.
So, if you want to view the show in the United States, you’ll have to go to Peacock and sign up for a free or premium account.
