One of Us Is Lying is a brilliant teen mystery that mostly went under the radar of the masses and maybe that’s why it was canceled after its second season. Based on a New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by Karen M. McManus, the Peacock series is set in Bayview High where five students walk into detention but only four of them walk out alive. The sensational teen series will definitely scratch the itch that the early seasons of Pretty Little Liars left in all of our hearts. So, if you also miss the series here are some you could watch next.
