USA Network announced today that The Sinner will be coming to an end after its current fourth season. The news comes with three episodes remaining in its run, which is set to conclude with an extended series finale on December 1.
Premiering in 2017, the show was first billed as a limited, close-ended series, but its solid performance kept it on the air, with each season focusing on an all-new crime with star Bill Pullman's Detective Ambrose acting as the perennial lead on each case.
In a message posted on social media, creator Derek Simonds stated that the acclaimed drama's finale will be completing Detective Ambrose's series-long arc as intended.
Top answer on Reddit: That's the name of the book the first season was based on. It was originally written in German but English translations are available.
A lot of things are weird, borderline lame, and the name itself is off. First season mostly good but drug on with the stupid girls hanging with stupider doper leader and his friends. Missed second second. Started but bailed quickly on 3rd season because of the yucky gay angst storyline. Watching this season but again it's got nutty stuff in it, and multitudes of weird people, which may or not be too much. Bill Pulman's character is bizarre and he's always the sane one. I haven't watched tonites episode but this season very much looks like it could have been planned to be the last. I'm watching so I hope this seasons constant twists end up being satisfying. Not like it could even be tied together.
