Filming has begun on the second series of ITV's hit drama Liar as Katherine Kelly, Howard Charles and Amy Nuttall join the cast and ITV reveal it will be the last.
Written by Harry and Jack Williams, Liar ended with the discovery of Andrew Earlham’s murdered body, leaving 9.1m viewers reeling.
The second series promises to answer the question "Who killed Andrew Earlham?" as it picks up three weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for Andrew for the sexual assault of 19 women.
When Andrew’s body is found in the Kent marshes, Detective Renton alongside DS Rory Maxwell are tasked with uncovering clues about Andrew’s past and unpacking the events of the three crucial weeks leading up to his murder.
Joining Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd for this final chapter are a number of new characters including DI Karen Renton, played by Katherine Kelly, Carl Peterson played by Howard Charles and Winnie Peterson played by Amy Nuttall.
Speaking about the new series, Harry & Jack Williams said “It has been a joy returning to Liar and our reunion with Joanne and Ioan. Equally we are thrilled to have Katherine Kelly on board as DI Renton after her stellar performance in Cheat.”
The first series of Liar was ITV’s highest rated new drama of 2017 with the final episode consolidating to 9.1m. Whilst the series averaged 8.3m viewers.
Liar returns later this year on ITV
