Karen McManus Reveals Conclusion to One Of Us Is Lying Trilogy

Fans of Karen M. McManus will be happy to know that the author has confirmed a deal with Delacorte to release two new thrillers over the next couple of years. This includes the final book in the One of Us Is Lying trilogy, One of Us Is Back,  expected summer 2023, and a stand-alone thriller set for publication in summer 2024.



McManus released the first novel of the series, One of Us Is Lying, back in 2017, and it quickly rose through the ranks of the New York Times bestseller list. For people new to the McManus fandom, the story follows four teens as they untangle the lies that led to a classmate’s death in a BreakfastClub-meets-Scream-style mystery. Unfortunately, thirsty readers had to wait until January 2020 to receive the second novel in the series, One of Us Is Next. Again, dedicated fans made this book a #1 New York Times bestseller, making the wait for the trilogy’s conclusion even more anticipated.




In between the trilogy books, however, McManus released several stand-alone thrillers to entice readers outside the world of Bayview High. Both Two Can Keep A Secret (2019) and The Cousins (2020) followed suit and quickly made their way to the top of various bestseller lists. But while 2023 seems far away, fear not because You’ll Be the Death of Me is expected in November 2021, and, according to McManus’s Instagram, another top-secret novel is in the works for summer 2022.

McManus has written plenty to occupy her readers’ TBR lists. Even better, Peacock has already green-lit the television series based on One of Us Is Lying and is expected to finish filming in October of this year. So while fans have to wait a while for the conclusion of the trilogy, sometimes a bit of patience brings the best rewards.
