One Of Us Is Lying Season 2 Plot
Before getting into the expected plot of the second season let’s dig into where the first season left us. In the first season, the fact behind the death of Simon (portrayed by Mark McKenna) unraveled following specifically chaotic detention. Hence, in the second season, we may see dealings with an entire new mysterious murder.
However, sadly, this time Jake (portrayed by Barrett Carnahan) who took up with that chalk outline around his body, following his contribution was revealed in the mysterious death of Simon.
It seems like Simon had always wanted to give himself anaphylactic shock by gulping down peanut oil which he had mixed in his water, as a part of a risky prank just to threaten his classmates.

Although, the prank was taken to the next level by where he intentionally hid Simon’s EpiPen in an attempt to frame his girlfriend Addy, who he’d learned had betrayed him.
Following she learned of all this, Addy proceeded to face off Jake with Cooper and Janae accompanying her. The thing that made it worse for them is when Jake got shot and lost his life. Now, among three of them, one is responsible for this killing but who has done that is still not revealed.
The second season will most probably cover that and answer the question left at the end of the first season.
The follow-up of the book titled One Of Us Is Next was adapted into a television series and aired on October 7, 2021.
