Jessica Biel’s The Sinner, an eight-episode season about a quiet mother’s public murder of a young man, became a surprise worldwide hit last year.
A second season has been ordered, although Biel previously declared that her character Cora wouldn’t be appearing on the show this season, saying: “We just couldn’t do it.”
But Biel has now hinted that Cora could be seen on screen after all in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I’ll definitely be involved as a producer,” she said. “I can’t really say much at this point without giving anything away how much I will be involved on screen – that’s still being developed and looked at.
“But lucky for me, no matter what, I will always be able to be a part of the show and I’m very proud of it.”
The show became a surprise breakout hit when it was released, which Biel partly attributes to it airing shortly before the #MeToo movement began.
“Maybe there was an undercurrent of something going on that was subconscious, that we couldn’t put our fingers on but was touching a nerve, culturally,” she said.
“This business also has such an element of luck, like lightning in a bottle – sometimes you catch it and most times you don’t, but this particular time we maybe had a little luck on our side.”
The Sinner returns to the USA Network on Wednesday, August 1, although no UK launch date has been announced yet.
