Tell Me Lies season 2 gets an exciting filming update from executive producer Emma Roberts.

While promoting her new Prime Video movie Space Cadet in an interview with ABC News, Roberts gave an update on Tell Me Lies season 2. The actor, who executive produces the series, gave credit to Oppenheimer as the showrunner and teased that the second installment might just turn everything on its head. She also confirmed that season 2 wrapped filming. Read the full quote from Roberts below:


I feel like we’re feeling the effects of the strikes more so now than we did even last year, which is ironic. Between the strikes and COVID, we’ve just been living in such unprecedented, weird times. I’m so grateful for the TV show I executive produce, Tell Me Lies, which just wrapped filming its second season. With “Space Cadet,” I’m excited to put something out there that I think will make people smile and laugh and hopefully feel a little inspired.

I’m so excited for people to see Season 2. It’s more unexpected than people think. Our showrunner, Meaghan Oppenheimer, is incredible. She really took this show to just a new level. With TV shows, it’s fun, especially in a second season — to turn everything on its head. I think we definitely did that and I can’t wait to see people’s reactions.



Tell Me Lies Season 2 Will Feature Some Notable Cast Additions

Tom Ellis & More Are Joining The Hulu Hit.

Although there isn’t currently a release date for the upcoming episodes, filming wrapping is a potentially positive sign that the wait won’t be much longer for the Hulu show.

Tell Me Lies season 2, which started production this past January, will be welcoming Tom Ellis. The Lucifer actor will play Oliver, a professor at Baird College, who has a tough-love approach and an intimidating presence that isn’t appreciated by everyone. He is married to Lucy’s professor, Marianne (Gabriella Pession), and it’s teased that his influence will lead to messy repercussions for one main character.


In addition to Ellis, who is married to showrunner Megan Oppenheimer, the upcoming episodes will also welcome Gossip Girl reboot actor Thomas Doherty in a recurring role. Doherty, who played Max Wolfe in the short-lived Gossip Girl, will portray Leo in the Hulu romance series. A junior at Baird, Leo returns to campus after studying abroad for a year. He finds himself immediately drawn to Lucy (Grace Van Patten), appearing to be kind and charming. But for her part, Lucy doesn’t know if she can fully trust him.
