This Jessica Biel Crime Drama Is the #2 Show on Netflix—and It Is *Dark*
It doesn’t take long for new content on Netflix to get noticed. And, over the weekend, that’s exactly what happened to hit anthology series, The Sinner, which made its way onto the streaming platform’s top ten list.
With the latest season becoming available on February 6, the crime-thriller, based on Petra Hammesfahr’s 1999 novel of the same name, quickly became the second most-watched TV show on the streaming platform. And TV buffs took notice.
In short, the series, which consists of three seasons, follows a detective (played by Bill Pullman) trying to solve a series of mysteries. In season one, Pullman's character aims to uncover answers about a woman’s unspeakable (and seemingly random) crimes by digging into the dark corners of her memory. Jessica Biel stars as Cora, the young mother with a seemingly perfect life…until, out of nowhere, she stabs an innocent man to death in broad daylight while horrified onlookers watch. The grisly incident is just the first crack in the facade hiding the darkness lurking in Cora’s past. Fair warning, this one is definitely dark.
Watch the full trailer below.
In addition to Biel and Pullman, the three seasons feature Dohn Norwood (Bruce Almighty), Adam LeFevre (She’s Out of My League), Christopher Abbott (It Comes at Night), Matt Bomer (American Horror Story) and Natalie Paul (The Deuce).
We also think it’s important to note that The Sinner received rave reviews from critics, including an impressive 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s definitely worth giving a shot.
