Michael Ealy has been cast in the lead role for season two of ABC’s anthology crime drama series Secrets & Lies.
Juliette Lewis is the only cast member from Season 1, which starred Ryan Philippe, to return, with her unflappable Detective Andrea Cornell taking on a brand new case, this time involving Eric Warner (Ealy) and the investigation into his wife’s murder. (Ryan Phillippe Is Not Returning for Season 2.)
Smart, well-educated and hard working, Warner is at the top of his game — he’s the heir apparent to his family’s private equity firm in Charlotte, NC, newly married to “the one” and walking on air. Eric Warner (Ealy) is attending a party to honor dad passing over the reins when suddenly tragedy strikes — his wife Kate is murdered, and life, as he knows it, is over.
The second season of Secrets & Lies is tentatively scheduled to begin airing in early 2016.
