    The Sinner is an American anthology crime drama television series developed by Derek Simonds for USA Network. It is named after Petra Hammesfahr‘s 1999 novel, which serves as the basis for the first season. Bill Pullman stars as a police detective who investigates crimes committed by unlikely culprits and attempts to uncover the culprits’ motivations.

    The Sinner wrapped up its third season on USA Network in March 2020 and in most regions, season three of The Sinner is already on Netflix with the US to finally get it in February 2021. Here’s a look at when season three of The Sinner will be on Netflix in the UK, the United States, and other regions in 2020 and beyond.

    Originally intended as an eight-part miniseriesThe Sinner premiered on August 2, 2017, to critical acclaim and high ratings. The show’s success led to USA Network turning it into an anthology series, with a second season airing in 2018 and a third in 2020. A fourth season has also been ordered.

    The first season of The Sinner received nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film and Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film for Jessica Biel. Biel was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

    USA Network‘s anthology crime series looks at ordinary people who commit brutal crimes. The first season arrived on USA Network back in August 2017 and quickly arrived on Netflix, more on that in a minute. Season two was quickly renewed and premiered on USA Network a year later in August 2018.

    The series, described as a “close-ended series” by the network, was adapted from the novel of the same name by Petra Hammesfahr; however, the book’s darker outlook was toned down and the location shifted from Germany to Upstate New York in the United States. It is the first time that Biel has served as an executive producer on a series, a role she said was “gold”. 

    Biel stated that she moved into production so that she could develop projects with challenging and interesting roles rather than wait for them to happen.

    The series was ordered on January 17, 2017, and the eight episodes were broadcast on USA Network between August 2 and September 20, 2017. Originally, the series was created as a miniseries; however, in March 2018, it was announced that The Sinner would return for a second season. 

    The second season premiered on August 1, 2018, comprised eight episodes and concluded on September 19, 2018. On March 6, 2019, USA Network renewed the series for a third season. which premiered on February 6, 2020. On June 15, 2020, USA renewed the series for a fourth season.


    The main song featured in the first-season storyline is “Huggin and Kissin” by Big Black Delta.


    In May 2018, Carrie CoonNatalie Paul and Hannah Gross were cast for the second season as Vera, Heather and Marin respectively. With the announcement of the third season renewal, it was announced that Matt Bomer would star in the third season. On August 16, 2019, Jessica HechtParisa Fitz-Henley, and Eddie Martinez were cast in starring roles for the third season.

    Filming locations

    The series is primarily filmed in New York state; various towns were used in the first season to depict the fictional Dorchester in New York. The exterior of the Mt. Pleasant Justice Court building in Valhalla, New York, was used for the Dorchester police building.

    The fictional Beverwyck Club in the first season was filmed at the Belvedere Estate, a private residence surrounded by forest in Tarrytown, New York. The production used some of the rooms, the basement, the Agora House building, and the wooded area on the property. Some filming for the first season was also completed in Summerville, South Carolina, and in North Charleston, South Carolina.  The county jail scenes were filmed at the former county detention center in St. George, South Carolina, 30 miles from Summerville. At that time, the first episode was still considered to be the pilot for the series.

    The hamlet of Purchase, New York, was used to film “a sizeable chunk” of the second season; one location is the Cobble Stone Restaurant. The Pier 701 Restaurant & Bar in the village of Piermont, New York, was used for some filming in the first season. Some filming was completed at Prospect Point in Niagara Falls, New York; Bill Pullman was included in those scenes.

    In the third season, Dorchester is specified as being “by the Hudson River in Somerset County”. The third season was mainly filmed in New York State, especially in the town of Hartsdale, New York, in Westchester County. Some filming for the third season was completed at the Hartsdale train station, rebranded as Dorchester.

    Crews were also filming in summer 2019 at Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, at the Found Herbal Apothecary Herb shop, and at the Hastings Center Diner. A car chase was shot in Queens, New York, and scenes set at the fictional Briarton school were shot at the Synod of Bishops Russian Church on East 93rd Street. Other New York City locations included the STK Midtown Steakhouse and the City College of New York, both in Manhattan.

    What you need to know before watching The Sinner season three

    Season three started on USA Network on February 6th with another planned eight episodes wrapped up on the network on March 26th, 2020.

    The headline casting announcement for the new season was Matt Bomer joining the cast. The star is most known for his recent recurring role on American Horror Story but also you probably know him from White Collar which sadly left Netflix back in 2018.

    Bill Pullman was also confirmed to return for the third season.

    Jessica Biel is returning for the third season but so far, she’s only announced she’d be working as a producer. She hasn’t ruled out a starring role, however.

    In terms of story, it’ll be following Detective Harry Ambrose once again as he begins a new investigation that should be a routine one but turns out to be one of the most dangerous he’s ever encountered.

    In July 2019, Chris Messina who appeared recently in HBO’s Sharp Objects joined the cast.

    Now let’s move onto the third season of The Sinner and when it’ll be on Netflix.

    It is said that The Sinner was initially conceived as a close-ended series based on German writer Petra Hammesfahr’s book of the same name. However, the complexity of Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) has made the creators explore more with series, and rightly so. The third season, titled Jamie is about a high school teacher Jamie Burns (Matt Bomer), and I am tempted to say that it is the best of the three seasons of The Sinner.
