The first teaser trailer for Peacock’s One of Us Is Lying is here, and it sets up a grim mystery that’s sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Based on the best selling young adult novel of the same name by author Karen M. McManus, the series focuses on five high school students, all of whom walk into detention together.
Only four of the five make it out alive though. When everyone winds up a suspect following the events of detention, it soon becomes clear that everyone has also got secrets they’re trying to hide.
“Welcome back, Bayview,” says the voice of Simon (Mark McKenna) over the footage from the first season. “I hope you’re ready for a wild year, because it’s only the first day of school and one of these four made it my last.”
