The first look at season three of The Sinner is here and we're already hooked

The first look at season three of The Sinner is officially here - and we've already got chills.

The somewhat-anthology series returns to telly screens next year and, if possible, the new footage has us even more excited for it to be back.

The third season will follow Detective Harry Ambrose as he begins a seemingly routine investigation into a tragic car accident in upstate New York.

He eventually ends up uncovering a hidden crime which will pull him into the most dangerous and the most disturbing case of his career.

The brief glimpse at season three features White Collar's Matt Bomer, who will play Jamie - who is described as an upstanding local resident and dad-to-be who looks to Ambrose in the wake of the accident.

The teaser doesn't give too much away, before cutting to shots of the wreckage, a blood-soaked headlight, the hand of a possible victim and someone approaching a wrecked car.

The Mindy Project's Chris Messina will play Nick Haas, a college friend of Jamie's who pays him a visit; Parisa Fitz-Henley will play Jamie's wife, Leela Burns.

Jessica Hecht will play Sonya, a painter who gets involved in the investigation when the accident happens on her property; and Eddie Martinez will play Vic Soto, an ex-Marine-turned-detective who works alongside Ambose to try and solve the case.
