How far would you go to keep a secret? That’s the premise of One of Us Is Lying, a Peacock Original series. The teen show follows a group of Bayview High students who find themselves caught in the machinations of a master-manipulating, anonymous blackmailer among them. Which one of them is the culprit, and who's going to get hurt as the finger pointing goes back and forth? Here's how to watch all eight episodes of One of Us Is Lying season 2 from anywhere.
Based on the young adult novel by Karen M. McManus and developed by Erica Saleh, season 1 gave us serious John Hughes vibes mixed with the murder-mystery thrills of Knives Out, as high-schoolers – Jock Cooper (Chibuikem Uche), cheerleader Addy (Annalisa Cochrane), grade-A student Bronwyn (Marianly Tejada), and drug-dealing dropout Nate (Cooper van Grootel) – were framed for the murder of unpopular student Simon during detention.
Following a fatal showdown with the actual killer, season 2 looks to go in a darker, I Know What You Did Last Summer kind of direction. ‘Murder Club’ is blackmailed by someone with the alias Simon Says: an anonymous texter who forces the group to commit increasingly heinous acts – intimidation, kidnapping, maybe even murder – in exchange for their silence.
With the central cast back and some new faces as well (including The Wilds’ Joe Witkowski and Doralynn Mui from The 100), One of Us Is Lying season 2 delivers more drama, intense thrills, and jaw-dropping surprises than ever before. All episodes are available now on Peacock in the US. Make sure you know how to watch from anywhere.

Can you watch One of Us Is Lying season 2 in Canada?
We’re not lying when we say season 2 hasn’t been confirmed in Canada yet. Season 1 was first broadcast on Global TV a fortnight after the final episodes were released on Peacock, so we’d hazard a guess that Global TV will be home to the next instalment of the show around early November this year.
However, you’ll need to have a valid cable login to get access to all Global content. Provided you can do that, you can watch One of Us Is Lying online totally free in Canada.
Alternatively, Stack TV includes Global TV programming (as well as Adult Swim, W Network, Showcase and more), which you can purchase with an Amazon Prime membership for the additional monthly cost of CAD$12.99 for the Stack TV channel.
Outside of Canada? Tune in just like you would at home by using a VPN to magically reappear in Canada and gain access to all the content you'd normally stream.
