Tell Me Lies just finished its scandalous, drama-filled first season, but will Hulu continue the show for a second season? Based on the Carola Lovering novel, Tell Me Lies was written by Meghan Oppenheimer and executive produced by Emma Roberts. It explores the turbulent relationship between Lucy (Grace Van Patten) and Stephen (Jackson White) over eight years.
Most of Tell Me Lies season 1 takes place during Lucy’s first year at Baird College in New York in 2007–2008. Still, the season also includes a scene from her friends Bree (Catherine Missal) and Evan (Branden Cook2015 )’s wedding, which takes place years after Lucy’s breakup with Stephen.
However, there is still a draw, as Lucy and Stephen’s first-year college romance is at the center of a web of deceit, including the passing of her roommate Macy (Lily McInerny), as well as their friends Pippa (Sonia Mena), Wrigley (Spencer House), and his younger brother Drew (Benjamin Wadsworth). Stephen is still drawn to his ex-girlfriend Diana despite his close friendship with Lucy (Alicia Crowder).
Tell Me Lies has yet to receive a season 2 renewal on Hulu. In an exclusive interview, Grace Van Patten said to Screen Rant that she has yet to hear whether or not Tell Me Lies will be renewed for a second season, but she certainly has high hopes. Everything depends on the number of hours Tell Me Lies is streamed according to Hulu’s internal metrics and other elements like social media buzz. Despite only receiving a 56% audience rating, Tell Me Lies has an 86% Fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating.
Tell Me Lies Season 2 Release date.
Tell Me Lies might return sooner than anticipated if the show is ready for a second season. The first season of Tell Me Lies was only in production from February 2022 to September 2022, when it made its Hulu debut. If Tell Me Lies is out for season 2 and begins production in early 2023, It might debut on Hulu around the same time in the fall of 2023.
The cast of Tell Me Lies Season 2
We can anticipate the return of Bree (Catherine Missal), Pippa (Sonia Mena), Wrigley (Spencer House), and Evan from Lucy and Stephen’s circle of friends in addition to Van Patten and White (Branden Cook). It’s likely that Lucy’s mother, CJ (Jessica Capshaw), will also appear because they got into a heated dispute in the last episode. Diana (Alicia Crowder) and Drew (Benjamin Wadsworth) may also make a return, but their presence would heighten the strain already felt by Lucy and Stephen.
The plot of Tell Me Lies Season 2
A later season will probably focus on Lucy and Stephen’s turbulent lives after graduation because Season 1 appears to end after college, save for a quick flashback to Bree’s wedding. A variety of narrative threads are also here in the penultimate episode. Campus police look into Drew when Lucy leaves a note in the dean’s office asking him to talk to them about the night Macy Campbell died. The letter, which Lucy sent to keep Stephen safe, sets off a chain of occurrences. At a party, Drew gets anxious and picks a confrontation with his brother, which causes Wrigley to lose his footing and fall off the balcony, shattering his leg. Wrigley accuses Pippa of mailing the letter, and the two argue. Later, Pippa confronts Lucy, telling her she is no longer trustworthy because of her clouded judgment of Stephen.
Also seen driving to the scene of Macy’s death is Stephen. He cries out for a moment and shows signs of panic, as though he knows more about what happened that night than he is letting on. He seems satisfied with the episode’s conclusion, though, suggesting that he could now be willing to let Drew take responsibility for whatever he did. Because we saw in the first episode that Wrigley gets too drunk at Bree’s wedding after someone mentions his brother, we can assume that whatever happens to Drew won’t be good.
Finally, Lucy confronts CJ about her affair with Lucy’s ailing father. They appear to be on the verge of reuniting when Stephen shows up, but Lucy snaps at him, and it’s obvious CJ doesn’t like him. When CJ claims that Lucy is back with the man she cheats with, Lucy explodes and flees. Due to spending time with Stephen, it appears from this disagreement and the one with Pippa that Lucy has become more unstable and untrustworthy, which is bad for their potential future relationship.
Undoubtedly, we will have to wait a while before seeing a trailer.

Follow Me Back leaves off right where Tell Me No Lies picks off. This book won’t stand on its own without the context from the first book, so if you haven’t read Follow Me Back and want to read it, you must do so first.

Stephen was operating a vehicle the night Macy passed away. Stephen later abandoned Lucy for Diana, Lucy reconnected with Evan, and Stephen eventually dated Lydia, Lucy’s best friend.
In Tell Me Lies, what is Stephen’s secret?
At first, he refuted her claim and said he had only given Macy a welcome gift. However, Lucy was aware that was a falsehood. She persisted in pressuring him in being honest. Stephen revealed that they had a summertime hookup that led to their continued friendship.
What is the Tell Me Lies unforgivable sin?
After some while, Lucy finally turns and walks away from him. She later makes peace with her mother; we later find out that the Unforgivable Thing was that Lucy had discovered her mother having an extramarital affair with Macy’s elder brother and ex-boyfriend Gabe. A friendly phone call between Lucy and her mother marks the book’s conclusion.
