ITV Releases ‘Liar’ First Look As It Teases Second Season

ITV Releases ‘Liar’ First Look As It Teases Second Season

*This article contains spoilers for Liar series one.*

If you loved drama Liar back in 2017 then you'd better buckle up, because ITV has now released a teaser clip for the new season.

Yep, after over two years, the hit TV show is finally returning to screens, and the trailer promises it's going to be as gripping as ever.

Any fan of the show will remember that the first season was left on rather a big cliffhanger, with Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd) found dead and Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggatt) looking like the prime suspect.

But it's not just Laura who could be behind the crime, as the trailer flicks between all the people who could have a vendetta against the high flying surgeon.

"There's a long list of people who had reason to kill him. I did not murder Andrew Earlham," Laura's voice can be heard yelling in the background of the 10-second clip.

Eeeeek. We can't wait.

If you need a season one refresher, the series started with Laura waking up to believe she had been raped, but Andrew - who has a son at Laura's school - insisted the sex was consensual.

The series then saw the teacher face a torrent of disbelievers, doubt and even questioning of her own sanity before she eventually found a way to prove Andrew was her rapist.

Laura uncovered recordings Andrew made of each of his victims, including DI Vanessa Harmon, and handed over evidence to the police. With his son Luke realising the truth about his dad and a warrant out for his arrest, the surgeon goes on the run.

But the series' huge twist comes right at the end, when viewers see Andrew's dead body in the marshes.

Showrunners Harry and Jack Williams confirmed the second series will be a classic whodunit, exploring a list of suspects. Could it be Laura? His ashamed son Luke? Another of Andrew's victims?

"There are certainly a few suspects and we hope to explore that further," Harry told the Mirror. "Andrew has been missing for several weeks and then we see his dead body in the empty marshlands. The question is, what happened in those missing weeks that led to Andrew's demise?"

Brother Jack added: "We don't want to do it cynically - it will be a new set of lies and perceptions. We want to give ourselves time, it will probably be the year after next. I hope people feel happy to wait."

Filming for series two began in January last year, and it was expected to air last autumn - so, fans have been waiting pretty patiently.

Now, showrunners have teased that the show should arrive in spring.

We can't wait!
