After six seasons on USA Network‘s White Collar, Matt Bomer (DC Universe’s Doom Patrol) is returning to the cable channel for the third season of thriller-drama The Sinner. Bomer will star opposite Bill Pullman, who is set to reprise his role as Detective Harry Ambrose in the series from executive producer Jessica Biel and Universal Content Productions. Derek Simonds returns as series showrunner, with Adam Bernstein (Fargo, Breaking Bad) set to direct the first two episodes.
The third season of The Sinner follows Detective Harry Ambrose (Pullman) as he begins a routine investigation of a tragic car accident on the outskirts of Dorchester, in upstate New York. Ambrose uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.
Succeeding Biel and Carrie Coon as the season’s co-lead, Bomer’s Jamie is an upstanding Dorchester resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of the accident.
Simonds executive produces alongside Iron Ocean’s Biel and Michelle Purple. Charlie Gogolak, Willie Reale, and Bernstein also serve as executive producers. The series/franchise has earned a number of award nominations, including an Emmy nomination nod to Biel for “Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.” The second season received a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nomination for Pullman for “Male Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie.”
Bomer currently stars in DC Universe’s live-action drama Doom Patrol for the streaming service, and is also currently involved in a season-long story arc on NBC’s Will and Grace as a news anchor and Will’s (Eric McCormack) love interest. The Emmy nominated actor won a Golden Globe for HBO’s The Normal Heart, and he recently starred in Amazon’s now-cancelled The Last Tycoon as well as in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s American Horror Story: Hotel for FX.
