Spoilers for The Sinner’s fourth season follow.
Sadly, ladies and gentlemen, The Sinner’s tortured Detective Harry Ambrose has solved his final case.
The last episode of the crime thriller, which is now accessible on Netflix, brought the series to a suitably gloomy conclusion after keeping us on our toes for four seasons.
The news that this will be the final season of the show first surfaced a month before it began showing on USA Network in the United States in December 2021.
On November 17, the show’s creator Derek Simonds confirmed the worst for the viewers, saying that this was the unstable cop’s long-term goal.
He stated in a statement (via TVLine): “Being able to tell the kinds of stories we have on The Sinner for the past four seasons has been a great pleasure and privilege.
“I’m thrilled to see Harry Ambrose’s dramatic series-long journey get resolved as we intended in this final season. [Universal Content Productions] and the USA have been excellent collaborators and consistently supportive of our creative ambitions.
“Thank you so much to Bill Pullman, my partner in crime, and the wonderful actors, writers, directors, and crew who gave it their all to make this program a reality. It’s been a very amazing adventure.”
Is there a potential for a fifth season of The Sinner?
Unfortunately, it appears that Ambrose will no longer be able to insert himself into some of the most complex whodunits in modern TV history.
Due in large part to the Jessica Biel-starring first season’s BBC Four premiere following its success in the US, The Sinner took some time to gain traction in the UK.
However, the program got a whole new lease on life and a bigger fan following when it premiered on Netflix with the Carrie Coon-led season two.
Seasons three and four were given the go-ahead due to the resurgence of interest. The cast of season three was led by The Mindy Project’s Chris Messina and American Horror Story’s Matt Bomer, but it wasn’t as well regarded by critics as its predecessors.
After season four ended, Derek Simonds reaffirmed that he had achieved his goals with Ambrose’s character, who was so overcome by loss and depression that it frequently impairs his judgment or, as in the instance of Percy Muldoon in season four, causes him to become fixated on finding real solutions.
However, he told TVLine that there is still a glimmer of optimism “Definitely, I could envision watching the programme again. I believe that going back to the persona later on would be enjoyable.
The creator added, “I’ll say this: At the moment, I don’t know what else to say with Ambrose. “In my opinion, if there were successive seasons beyond this one, we might end up repeating ourselves with diminishing returns.
But I’m always open to the thought of working with Bill once more and returning to the world I’ve lived in for the past five years and genuinely cherished.
Since the door appears to be closed for the time being, who can say what may occur in the future.
