Secrets and Lies: Jordana Brewster, Charlie Barnett Join Season 2

Jordana Brewster Secrets and Lies

Jordana Brewster (Dallas) and Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire) will be wrapped up in Secrets and Lies‘ new mystery when the ABC drama returns, our sister site Deadline reports.

Season 2 of the anthology series will focus on Eric Warner (Almost Human‘s Michael Ealy), a well-educated newlywed and heir apparent to his family’s private equity firm in Charlotte, N.C. While Eric is attending a party to honor his dad’s (Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn) retirement, Eric’s wife, Kate (Brewster), is murdered — and he must turn to the unflappable Det. Cornell (Juliette Lewis) to investigate Kate’s death.

Brewster’s Kate is an accomplished attorney who runs the compliance department for the private equity firm. Barnett, meanwhile, will portray Patrick Warner, the youngest child of O’Quinn’s John and an analyst at the firm.

As previously reported, Lewis’ formidable sleuth will be the only Season 1 character returning for the show’s sophomore run. Secrets and Lies returns at midseason.
