Tell Me Lies Season 2: What to expect?
Tell Me Lies follows a tumultuous but intoxicating relationship as it unfolds over the course of 8 years. When Lucy Albright (Grace Van Patten) and Stephen DeMarco (Jackson White) meet at college, they are at that formative age when seemingly mundane choices lead the way to irrevocable consequences. Although their relationship begins like any typical campus romance, they quickly fall into an addictive entanglement that will permanently alter not only their lives but the lives of everyone around them.
The next season is expected to continue from the last episode, “The Bedrooms of Our Friends,” which is directed by Robin Wright and written by Meaghan Oppenheimer. The viewers got to see that Lucy and Stephen go to the final party of the semester, and everything changes, which has definitely left many important cliffhangers and questions which need answers.
In an interview with Deadline, When asked, “What would you have Lucy do in a second season?” Van Patten replied, “There’s so much. What is the rest of her experience with Stephen in college? I mean, she must have to go back to him. That seems like a relationship that’s just a constant push and pull. And then I’m like, how does she end up with Max? Because in the present day, she’s settled and living with Max and seems stable and seems like she has it together. And to watch that journey of her get there and then have Stephen just pop into her life again, I would love to see the process of that. It’s probably going to be so extremely painful because watching her get it together and heal and begin the healing process and then he’ll just get right back in there at the perfect time.”
The main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles in the new season are as follows Grace Van Patten as Lucy Albright, Jackson White as Stephen DeMarco, Catherine Missal as Bree, Spencer House as Wrigley, Sonia Mena as Pippa, Branden Cook as Evan, Benjamin Wadsworth as Drew, and Alicia Crowder as Diana.
There can be new characters introduced in the new season, which will be disclosed once the show creators decided to reveal the details. Meaghan Oppenheimer serves as executive producer and showrunner. Emma Roberts, Karah Preiss, and Matt Matruski executive produce under their Belletrist Productions banner, and Laura Lewis and Stephanie Noonan executive produce for Rebelle Media. Shannon Gibson and Sam Schlaifer executive produce for Vice Media’s Refinery29. Jonathan Levine also serves as executive producer. Lovering serves as a consulting producer.
