Simon is a high school student known for creating About That, an online gossip group where he releases personal and revealing information about his classmates. At the beginning of a new school year, five students—Simon, Addy, Cooper, Bronwyn, and Nate—are given detention. After drinking a cup of water, Simon suffers a sudden and fatal allergic reaction. Nate notices that Bronwyn has stolen Simon's laptop and when he confronts her about it Bronwyn later puts it in the trunk of her car. The following morning, the four students are introduced to Officer Miller, who has initiated an investigation on Simon's death, which was a result of a peanut allergy that spawned when traces of peanut oil were inserted into the cup he was drinking from. Nate encourages Bronwyn to return the laptop. Cooper talks with his brother Lucas and expresses his struggles with coming out. Nate, who is on probation, continues to sell drugs. The next day, Addy begins taking medication to deal with the stress as a result of Simon's death, and leaves a small pool party with Jake, Cooper, Keely, TJ and Vanessa, to take it, to which Jake's best friend, TJ, comes in to check on her.

Production

Development

Jennifer Morrison at the 2012 Comic-Con in San Diego.
Jennifer Morrison directed the pilot of One of Us Is Lying

In September 2017, Universal Cable Productions reportedly acquired the rights to One of Us Is Lying—the debut novel of Karen M. McManus—in a competitive situation and would produce a television series adaptation to be released on E!.[4] In August 2019, the project was moved to NBCUniversal, who gave the then-unreleased streaming service Peacock its first pilot order with the series.[5][6][7]

Following the success of his Spanish Netflix series Elite, Darío Madrona received several offers to work on American television series; one such offer was for One of Us Is Lying. Madrona thought the show would provide something "a little brighter" than traditional mystery stories and found the novel "super addictive"—he was also intrigued by the flawed and untruthful characters, and saw the project as a chance to explore more profound themes of friendship, love and want. After accepting the offer, Madrona met with the producers and studio and was hired as showrunner.[8]

In September 2019, it was reported that Jennifer Morrison would direct the pilot episode.[9] On August 12, 2020, the project became the first from Peacock to receive a series order.[10] On January 14, 2022, Peacock renewed the series for a second season, with Saleh replacing Madrona as showrunner.[11] On January 20, 2023, Peacock canceled the series after two seasons.[12]

Writing and adaptation

While McManus was not involved in outlining the season, she was given the opportunity to review scripts.[13] McManus stated that her main objective was to keep her characters' emotional cores intact.[14] In an interview, Madrona was asked if the series would stay faithful to its source material; he responded by saying, "We've been faithful to the spirit of the story and the themes and the characters, but also trying to add some little twists and turns here and there so we can surprise readers of the book." Madrona found the idea of a single season that tells a complete story while solving the show's biggest mystery very satisfying. He also claimed that after a season, viewers often lost interest in a show and stopped watching. Because of this, the series reveals who killed Simon, but many other questions are left unanswered at the end of the first season.[15]

The second season deviated from its source material.[11][16] According to Saleh, the crew were eager to write about the show's characters again and continue the first season's narrative.[16] She did not want to adapt the second book because it stars a different cast of characters, and the team wanted to carry on exploring the original characters.[17] Saleh found it both "exciting and freeing" and "a little nerve-wracking" to write the second season without the novels as a blueprint for the plot. Since the writers knew their audience enjoyed the books and their characters, they wanted to make sure they were "really continuing to deliver on the heart of the characters that [McManus] created".[16] While the first season focuses on themes of living honestly and breaking away from stereotypes, the second emphasises the consequences of doing so.[17]

Casting

In October 2019, Marianly Tejada, Cooper van Grootel, Annalisa Cochrane, Chibuikem Uche, Jessica McLeod, Barrett Carnahan, and Melissa Collazo were announced as part of the cast.[18] In joining the series, van Grootel, Cochrane, and Uche all said they had not heard about the novel before they auditioned.[19][20] In 2021, Mark McKenna was confirmed as a series regular in July;[21] Martin Bobb-Semple, Karim Diane, George Ferrier, Miles J. Harvey, Zenia Marshall, and Sara Thompson were announced as part of the recurring cast in August;[22] and Alimi Ballard was confirmed in October.[23] In May 2022, Joe Witkowski and Doralynn Mui joined the cast in recurring roles for the second season.[24]

Filming

Filming for the pilot took place in Vancouver, Canada—from November 2 to November 20, 2019. Scenes were shot at several local sites, including Central Park; Blenheim Street; West 53rd Avenue; and a parking lot on Boundary Road.[25] Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the crew had difficulties restarting production. They decided to film the rest of the show in New Zealand. According to producer Matt Groesch, the beaches on the country's east coast provided an excellent match to those in Southern California. The crew visited many locations, such as Auckland, the North Shore, and Waiwera. Groesch had to figure out a method to replicate the high school setting in Auckland as they had previously been shot elsewhere in the pilot. Several locations were used, including the AUT Millennium and the ASB Showgrounds. The team used Rangitoto College as the backdrop for Bayview High's rival school.[26] The remaining seven episodes started shooting on May 10, 2021. Due to a a COVID-19 lockdown, the last few days of production shifted to Ontario, Canada. Filming concluded in late September 2021.[25] Production returned to New Zealand for the second season.[27]

Release

The first three episodes premiered on Peacock on October 7, 2021, followed by three episodes on October 14, and the final two episodes of the first season on October 21.[28] All eight episodes of season two were released on Peacock on October 21, 2022.[29] On Netflix, the seasons were released on February 18 and November 16, 2022, respectively.[30][31]

Reception

On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, 89% of 9 critics' reviews are positive, with an average rating of 7.0/10.[32]

Before its premiere, critics were given the first three episodes to review. From The Wall Street Journal, John Anderson said the series was difficult to categorize and wrote that "the way it careens its way through its various plot points, unencumbered by the need for explanations or narrative development" is what set the series apart as storytelling. He, however, felt that that was unnecessary, saying: "The conclusion will be a surprise, one assumes. But the getting there is, as they might say in French class, déjà vu."[33] Brad Newsome, writing for The Sydney Morning Herald, said the story "deftly tweaks its balance of suspicions to keep things interesting, but it's McKenna and Van Grootel who really pull focus."[34] The Hollywood Reporter's Angie Han said the series was missing a spark to set it apart from similar programming, with characters that feel like "archetypes! a "sour, dour mood, with few moments of either levity or raw pain". and dull colors that "keep the show's emotions at arm's length". She opined that due to its lack of "notable quirks or deep insights", the series is likely to be forgotten by the viewer once it ends.[35]
