Liar series 2 plot: What’s in store?
The second series, which features flashbacks, will reveal who murdered Andrew and why. It picks the story up after Andrew’s body is found and three weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for him for the sexual assault of 19 women. An obvious murder suspect is Laura…
“It was an exciting cliffhanger that everyone loved and the story picks up directly after the last episode,” says Harry Williams, who co-writes the drama with brother Jack.
“Ioan’s brilliant. The hardest part was making sure there’s enough of him in it but there’s plenty!” adds Jack. “You want to know what’s happening next. We’re delighted it’s back.”
Who’s in it?
Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd – who says series two is very exciting – once again take on the leading roles of Laura and Andrew.
Meanwhile, former Coronation Street actress Katherine Kelly joins the cast as DI Inspector Karen Renton, who alongside DS Rory Maxwell (returning star Danny Webb), must find Andrew’s killer. Ex Emmerdale and Downton Abbey star Amy Nuttall and The Widow’s Howard Charles have also joined the cast.
Liar season 2 trailer: What does it reveal?
The new trailer strongly hints that Laura is going to be arrested for Andrew’s murder. She’s even seen in police custody.
In the moody new trailer, Laura is heard making an embittered speech.
“I wanted Andrew to suffer, it’s all I could think about,” she declares. “And when I found out he was dead, I was relieved that he couldn’t hurt anyone else, the way he hurt me.
“The way he hurt so many people and ruined so many lives. There are some people who will think whoever killed him is a hero. But somehow he’s still doing it, messing with my life.
“He’s dead and he’s still playing games with me. I don’t know who killed Andrew Earlham, but I’m not taking the fall for it. He’s not going to ruin my life all over again.
“I DID NOT MURDER Andrew Earlham.”
“I best find out who did then,” says Katherine Kelly’s cop.
