What will 'The Sinner' season 2 be about? - Plot

Following Detective Ambrose's crusade to find evidence that would lead to Cora Tannetti's release, the determined law man returns to his hometown to take on a new mystery.

Season 2 will be a bit different, with Detective Ambrose taking on a case involving a young kid, Julian.

You can read the official synopsis:

"Season 2 lures Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) back to his hometown in rural New York to assess an unsettling and heart wrenching crime -- parents murdered by their 11-year-old son, with no apparent motive. As Ambrose realises there’s nothing ordinary about the boy or where he came from, the investigation pulls him into the hidden darkness of his hometown. He’s pitted against those who’ll stop at nothing to protect its secrets -- and a mysterious woman who proves to be a complicated, enigmatic piece to this haunting puzzle."
