Tell Me Lies just finished its scandalous, drama-filled first season, but will Hulu continue the show for a second season? Tell Me Lies, based on the Carola Lovering novel, 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 the course of eight years.
The majority of Tell Me Lies season 1 takes place during Lucy’s first year at Baird College in New York in 2007–2008, but 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, the allure is still there, and Lucy and Stephen’s first-year college romance is still going strong.
Tell Me Lies: Will Hulu Renew It for Season 2?
Tell Me Lies has not yet received a season 2 renewal on Hulu. Grace Van Patten said to Screen Rant in an exclusive interview that she hasn’t heard whether or not Tell Me Lies will be renewed for a second season, but she certainly has high hopes.
Everything is dependent on the number of hours Tell Me Lies is streamed according to Hulu’s internal metrics, as well as other elements like social media buzz. Despite only receiving a 56% audience rating, Tell Me Lies has an 86% Fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating.
Release Date for Tell Me Lies Season 2
Tell Me Lies might return sooner than anticipated if the show is renewed 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. Tell Me Lies might have a similar fall 2023 launch date on Hulu if season 2 is renewed and shooting begins early in 2023.
The Cast of Tell Me Lies Season 2
Along with Van Patten and White, we can anticipate the return of Bree (Catherine Missal), Pippa (Sonia Mena), Wrigley (Spencer House), and Evan from Lucy and Stephen’s group of pals (Branden Cook).
The mother of Lucy, CJ (Jessica Capshaw), will probably also appear as they had a significant argument in the previous episode. Diana (Alicia Crowder) and Drew (Benjamin Wadsworth) might also make a comeback, but their presence would only add to the tension that Lucy and Stephen are already experiencing.
Story of Tell Me Lies Season 2
In light of the fact that Season 1 seems to stop after college, save for a brief flash forward to Bree’s wedding, it is possible that a later season may follow Lucy and Stephen’s tumultuous lives after graduation.

The penultimate episode also establishes a number of narrative strands. 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 note, 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. They split up after Wrigley accuses Pippa of sending the letter. And then Pippa confronts Lucy, saying that she can no longer trust her because she can’t think clearly when it comes to Stephen.
Stephen is also seen driving to the scene of Macy’s death. He sobs briefly and displays panic, giving the impression that he knows more about what happened that night than he is letting on. However, he also seemed content with how the episode ended, indicating that he might now be okay with letting Drew accept responsibility for whatever he did. We can infer that whatever happens to Drew won’t be good because we saw in the first episode that Wrigley gets too drunk at Bree’s wedding after someone mentions his brother.
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. Lucy erupts and runs off when CJ says she’s back with the man she cheated with.
It appears from this argument and the one with Pippa that Lucy has become more erratic and unreliable as a result of spending time with Stephen, which is unfavorable for their future relationship.
