USA Network has renewed the anthology crime drama series The Sinner for Season 3. The renewal announcement on Wednesday, March 6, did not come as a surprise to fans.
The first season won many awards and accolades and was the top new cable series in 2017, according to Nielsen figures, while both that and the second season received critical acclaim.
Fans have been eagerly looking forward to the return of The Sinner for Season 3 since the last season ended in September. Ahead of the new season, here is everything you need to know, including the likely release date, trailers, cast and plot.
The Sinner season 3 release date
While no official announcement has been made about The Sinner Season 3 release date, it is possible to give an educated guess as to when it will be.
Season 1 premiered on USA Network on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, while season 2 premiered on Wednesday, August 1, 2018. So, if USA Network follows the schedule for seasons 1 and 2, fans can expect The Sinner season 3 to premiere on USA Network on August 7, 2019, the first Wednesday in the month, or at least around that time.
We will update this page when USA Network officially announces the release date for The Sinner season 3. So stay tuned.

Bomer stars in The Sinner Season 3 opposite Bill Pullman after Biel and Carrie Coon starred in seasons 1 and 2 as Cora Tannetti and Vera Walker respectively.
The Sinner season 3 plot
In The Sinner Season 3, Detective Harry Ambrose conducts a routine investigation after a car accident just outside Dorchester in upstate New York.
