Tell Me Lies Season 2 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot
The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Tell Me Lies Season 2, it might happen sometime around mid-2023, just like the prior season. It is expected to air at the same time slot of 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET on the streaming platform which premiered its first season on September 7, 2022. As stated above, a statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by Hulu. So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to go with the same schedule.
Tell Me Lies Season 2 Plot
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.
Tell Me Lies Season 2 Cast and Crew
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: On the surface, she is a sheltered but well-adjusted girl from an affluent Long Island town. Her acerbic humor and often cool demeanor have earned her the label of “Ice Queen” among her friends. But beneath her confident façade, Lucy is hiding a childhood trauma that has left her feeling disconnected from her peers. When she meets Stephen, Lucy sees a dark streak in him that she recognizes in herself and will inadvertently bring her demons to light.
Jackson White as Stephen DeMarco: With an enigmatic quality and fierce intelligence, Stephen’s ability to read people has always been a means of survival. But underneath his charm, he has a dark side. When he meets Lucy (Van Patten) he will bring out a side of her that is simultaneously enthralling and frightening. Together they will embark on a tumultuous journey with repercussions that neither could have predicted.
Catherine Missal as Bree: Grounded and caring with a strong sense of who she is, Bree is one of Lucy’s best friends and has been since their first day of college. Although she initially presents as naïve, she is actually anything but.
Spencer House as Wrigley: Wrigley is the most celebrated athlete on campus and always the life of the party. Although it seems like life is easy for him, his big personality hides a wealth of insecurities.
Sonia Mena as Pippa: Pippa is the ringleader of the group who uses her bravado to mask deep insecurity. Although she’d never admit it, she cares way too much about what others think. She and Lucy (Grace Van Patten) become close friends at college, but they find themselves constantly at odds with each other.
Branden Cook as Evan: Evan is a kind, intelligent guy who often feels stunted by his father’s success, causing him to sometimes lack motivation. He is overly concerned with being the “nice guy” and puts his friends’ needs before his own – this leads to a repressed anger that might eventually get the better of him.
Benjamin Wadsworth as Drew: Drew is a college freshman and Wrigley’s younger brother. He is shy but smart and is used to living in the shadow of Wrigley.
Alicia Crowder as Diana: Diana has an Audrey Hepburn air about her, elegant, confident, and poised. But underneath it all, she has a formidable strength and is nobody’s fool. Once Lucy finds out that Diana and Stephen (Jackson White) have been in a tumultuous relationship for years, she is threatened-and rightly so. Diana knows Stephen in a way Lucy does not and knows how to navigate his games.
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.
Tell Me Lies Season 2 Episode Count and Streaming Options
