USA Network has announced that Derek Simonds’ crime anthology drama The Sinner will officially be concluding its run with the current fourth season, leaving Don Mancini’s Chucky series as the only ongoing scripted drama on the network. There are currently three remaining episodes left for the final season, which is scheduled to air on November 17, November 24, and December 1.
“It’s been a huge pleasure and a privilege to be able to tell the kind of stories we have on The Sinner these past four seasons,” Simonds said in the statement. “UCP and USA have been ideal partners and continually supportive of our creative goals, and I’m so pleased to complete Harry Ambrose’s dramatic series-long arc as we intended in this final season. A huge thank you to my partner-in-crime, Bill Pullman, and to the talented actors, writers, directors, and crew who gave their all to help realize this show. It’s been an incredible journey.”
The Sinner is being led by Bill Pullman (Sleepless in Seattle) as Detective Harry Ambrose, a character that has appeared in all four seasons. Friends alum Jessica Hecht has also joined Pullman as a main recurring character of the series, whose Sonya Barzel was first introduced in Season 3.
“In Season 4, still reeling from the trauma of a previous case a year ago, the now-retired Harry Ambrose travels to Hanover Island in northern Maine for a recuperative getaway with his partner, Sonya,” reads the official synopsis. “When an unexpected tragedy occurs involving the daughter of a prominent island family, Ambrose is recruited to help the investigation, only to be thrown into a mystery of mounting paranoia that will turn this sleepy tourist island, and Ambrose’s life, upside down.”
Season 4 currently stars Alice Kremelberg, Michael Mosley, Frances Fisher, Cindy Cheung, Ronin Wong, Neal Huff, David Huynh, Joe Cobden, and Kim Roberts.
The Sinner is from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. Derek Simonds serves as showrunner and executive producer. Executive producers are Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple through their Iron Ocean production company, Charlie Gogolak, Adam Bernstein, and Nina Braddock.
