Why isn’t Jessica Biel in series two of The Sinner?

Jessica’s character Cora Tannetti isn’t in The Sinner season two as it is a completely different story.

Cora’s name does come up in episode one of the second series, but that is the only reference to her.

However, Jessica did act as an executive producer on the second series.

Speaking about not reprising the role, Jessica told Variety: “We did talk a lot about does Cora come back for season 2 and what is the relationship because that’s what was interesting to me.”

“What happens when a woman goes through that? What is life like after that when the only person really in her life that she can connect with, even besides her husband, is the detective who got her out of this thing? But we just couldn’t do it this particular season.”
