USA has renewed “The Sinner” for a third season with Matt Bomer coming aboard to star opposite Bill Pullman.
The third season follows Detective Harry Ambrose (Pullman) as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.
Bomer will play Jamie, an upstanding Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of an accident.
The first two seasons starred Jessica Biel and Carrie Coon, respectively, with Pullman’s Detective Ambrose appearing in both. Derek Simonds will return as showrunner and executive producer, with Biel, Michelle Purple, Charlie Gogolak and Willie Reale as executive producers. Adam Bernstein (“Fargo,” “Breaking Bad”) is set to direct the first two episodes and will also executive produce.
For Bomer “The Sinner” will be a return to USA, where he starred for six seasons as con-artist Neil Caffrey on “White Collar.” He currently stars in DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, and has appeared in FX’s “American Horror Story” and co-starred opposite Kelsey Grammar on Amazon’s short-lived “The Last Tycoon.” He also had a season-long guest role on NBC’s “Will & Grace.”
On the film side, Bomer credits include “Papi Chulo,” “The Nice Guys,” “The Magnificent Seven” and the “Magic Mike” franchise.
