The writers of Liar have revealed a HUGE hint about season two

Remember Liar? 

The ITV drama had fans captivated from the moment it premiered in 2017.


The six-part series by Harry and Jack Williams featured Joanne Froggatt as Laura Nielson, a schoolteacher who is targeted by serial rapist, Andrew Earlham (played by Ioan Gruffudd).

The final episode ended on a massive cliffhanger, as Earlham's dead body was seen in the marshes - and there were a lot of possible suspects for his murder in the frame.

Now, the writers of Liar have given some hints about what fans can expect in season two - and dropped a hint about when it will arrive on our telly screens.

Harry and Jack Williams sat down with TV Times, where they promised fans who were frustrated by the cliffhanger would be "rewarded for their patience."

They added [via GoodHousekeeping]: 

"It should be out in the autumn

"Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd are back. We’re delighted that anyone frustrated by the cliffhanger will be rewarded for their patience.

"Questions are answered and the title is central."


Harry explained that it's going to be a "different lie" this time around.

He continued:

"Who’s lying about what? The audience will be figuring that out."

Based off previous hints, it looks like the second series will focus - at least a little bit - on the murder of serial rapist Andrew Earlham.


The character was missing for a number of weeks before he was finally discovered, and the season will fill in the blanks of what happened during that time.

Writer Harry Williams previously told The Mirror:

“There are certainly a few suspects and we hope to explore that further.

"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?”

Joanne Froggatt's Laura is one of the prime suspects so far, as is her sister Katy, one of Andrew's other victims DI Vanessa Harmon, or her recently-returned partner Jennifer.


But Laura's ex-boyfriend Tom, who lost his job because of the accusations Earldom made against him, is also a suspect - as is his son, Luke, who lied to give his dad an alibi.
