The start date for Liar season 2 has been released, but when does it air, who is in the cast and what is the plot?

ITV has finally released a teaser trailer for the second season of Liar after the first series finished back in 2017.

The clip sees Laura Nielson appear as one of the murder suspects of Andrew Earlham after what he put her through in series one.

But she is seen denying any involvement, stating: “There’s a long list of people who had reason to kill him. I did not murder Andrew Earlham.”

It then shows a string of other possible suspects for the murder, with the final few seconds of the clip teasing: “Liar Returns.”

What happened in Liar season 1?

The six-part thriller ended on a shocking cliffhanger in 2017 when rapist Andrew Earlham was found dead in the Kent marshes with his throat slit and blood all over his shirt.

He had been missing for two weeks after vanishing from his home on the night Laura Nielson finally discovered evidence of his horrific crimes.

After being raped by Andrew herself, Laura came across disturbing video footage of him sexually assaulting 19 different women. But when the police rushed to arrest him, he had already disappeared.

His dead body was found shortly after which leaves us with one huge question – who murdered him?

What is Liar season 2 about?

The much-awaited second series is said to begin three weeks after police issue an arrest warrant for Andrew.

He is wanted in connection with the sexual assault of 19 women, but his body is then found floating in the marshes of Kent.

This then leads a to an investigation into the days leading up to the rapist's murder, and will uncover "a different lie".

Writers Harry and Jack Williams say the plot is packed full of twists, which will have viewers asking "Who’s lying about what?"
