Think you’ll figure out the killer from the first episode of Secrets and Lies‘ fun, juicy second season? Well, if you do guess correctly, you’ll have done better than stars Juliette Lewis and Michael Ealy.
“We didn’t know until the finale,” Ealy tells E! News of the moment he finally learned who was responsible for the murder of his on-screen wife, played by Jordana Brewster. “We could not guess! … Every week you have a different theory.”
Lewis agrees—you’ll think the killer is someone different every week. “Here’s the way this series is, which is really fun—nobody’s all good and nobody’s all bad, hence the title Secrets and Lies,” she tells us. “This season is even more juicy.”
The second season of ABC’s mystery series follows Det. Andrea Cornell’s (Lewis) investigation into the murder of Kate Warner (Brewster), the wife of prominent North Carolina attorney Eric Warner (Ealy). While the grieving husband is the first suspect (as in any crime investigation), soon Eric’s wealthy family (finance magnate father John, played by Terry O’Quinn; criminal attorney sister Amanda, played by Mekia Cox; underachieving little brother Patrick, played by Charlie Barnett) comes under suspicion.
In the process of attempting to prove his innocence, Eric learns that his family and wife aren’t necessarily what he thought they were.
“The crew was so into the show that every week people came to me w a different theory. I think the audience will do the exact same thing,” Ealy says.
Secrets and Lies premieres Sunday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
