Facebook Watch Renews Sorry for Your Loss, Sacred Lies


Facebook Watch has confirmed second seasons for its original series Sorry for Your Loss and the fairytale anthology series Sacred Lies.

Sorry for Your Loss, produced by Big Beach, is a half-hour drama that explores the life of a young widow played by Elizabeth Olsen. Olsen, who stars alongside Kelly Marie Tran, Mamoudou Athie, Jovan Adepo and Janet McTeer in the series, was recently nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for best actress in a dramatic series for her work in the Facebook Watch original.

While the first season of Sacred Lies was based on the young adult novel The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes and inspired by the Grimm fairytale The Handless Maiden, creator-showrunner Raelle Tucker is drawing inspiration from the Brothers Grimm’s The Singing Bone for the show’s second season as it reinvents itself as an anthology series. Elena Kampouris, who starred as Minnow Bly in Sacred Lies’ first season, will return in season two in a new role. Blumhouse Television produces the show.
