After a mind-blowing season 2 finale, fans are wondering about the possibilities of “Secrets and Lies” season 3. In a recent interview, the show’s executive producer, Barbie Kligman, talked about what fans can expect from a potential third season of the mystery series.
The last episode of “Secrets and Lies” season 2 shocked fans as Kate’s killer was revealed to be Amanda. Apparently, Amanda got jealous after learning that Kate was pregnant, especially because her own infertility issues resulted in a divorce, only to know later that she was also pregnant.
In an interview with TVLine, Kligman said “Secrets and Lies” season 3 will be dependent on the network. “It really just depends on where ABC is and what the numbers are,” she said.
“Secrets and Lies” suffered a decline in ratings during season 2. The first episode of the second season only had more than 4 million viewers, which is fewer than the episode with the lowest ratings in “Secrets and Lies” season 1. The ratings further went down in the following episodes, as the first eight episodes averaged to 3.22 million viewers, almost half of the 5.61 million average of the first season.
Talking about Juliette Lewis’ character, Kligman hinted the possibility of Andrea Cornell ending up as the victim in “Secrets and Lies” season 3. “There’s a world where that could happen,” she said.
She further explained that the entire season might explore about who could have done the crime. “And given how many enemies Cornell has made over the years, there certainly wouldn’t be a shortage of suspects,” she added.
On the other hand, Lewis said she’s not sure of what’s in store for “Secrets and Lies” or if there will be a season 3. “The options are endless and really exciting, but I’m not sure what else to say or where ABC will even stand with us,” she said to Entertainment Weekly. She added that fans can only hope for the best for the series.
