JULIETTE LEWIS, RYAN KWANTEN AND JORDAN ALEXANDER HEADLINE "SACRED LIES: THE SINGING BONES," SECOND SEASON OF POPULAR FACEBOOK WATCH SERIES FROM BLUMHOUSE TELEVISION

Kimiko Glenn, Kristin Bauer, Antonique Smith, Siobhan Williams, Emily Alyn Lind and Odiseas Georgiadis Also Join as Recurring Cast Members

Showrunner Raelle Tucker's Second Season Starts Production in Vancouver in July

Los Angeles, CA - June 27, 2019 -- Oscar-Nominee, Juliette Lewis (Ma, The Act, August: Osage County), Ryan Kwanten (The Oath, True Blood) and newcomer Jordan Alexander, in her first major leading role, are joining Sacred Lies: The Singing Bones, the second season of the anthology series from Blumhouse Television for Facebook Watch, as series regulars. Additionally, Kimiko Glenn (Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, Orange is the New Black), Kristin Bauer (Once Upon A Time, True Blood), Grammy nominated singer Antonique Smith (Luke Cage), Siobhan Williams (Deadly Class, Welcome to Marwen), Emily Alyn Lind (Doctor Sleep, Code Black) and Odiseas Georgiadis (Trinkets) will join the series as recurring cast members.

Both Kwanten and Bauer have previously teamed with Sacred Lies showrunner Raelle Tucker (Jessica Jones, The Returned) and director/executive producer Scott Winant (Fargo, My So Called Life) on the HBO series True Blood where they both starred for seven seasons. Winant directed and Tucker served as a writer and executive producer. Production on Sacred Lies: The Singing Bones begins in July in Vancouver.

The second season of the anthology series will feature a new cast and a storyline that draws inspiration from a story collected from the Brothers Grimm, The Singing Bone, as well as real-life murder cases. This season of Sacred Lies follows Elsie (Jordan Alexander) as she searches for the family she never knew after being abandoned as a child. The search leads her to her father, Peter (Kwanten), an inmate who may be guilty of more than the crimes he's currently incarcerated for and Harper (Lewis), a telemarketer turned arm-chair detective with an obsessive hobby of searching for unidentified murder victims. Bauer will be featured in a recurring role as Elsie's foster mother, Shannon.

Throughout the first season of Sacred Lies, showrunner Raelle Tucker and the cast, were actively involved in the "Sacred Lies: The Community" Facebook Group, interacting with fans and being a part of the discussion around the show.

In March, Tucker announced that the second season would further engage the show's superfans, known as the "Sacred Lies Keepers," via the Facebook Group. The "Sacred Lies Keepers" were included in creative decisions -- ranging from design to narrative choices -- that will play out in the show's anticipated second season.. The first season of Sacred Lies was a fan and critic favorite, creating a loyal community.

Fans can binge the first season and follow Sacred Lies on Facebook Watch (www.facebook.com/sacredliesshow), and join the official Sacred Lies Facebook Group (www.facebook.com/groups/sacredlies) for updates on season two. Follow @SacredLies on Instagram and join the conversation with #SacredLies.
