Liar star Joanne Froggatt teases dramatic season two finale to finish the series

Liar actress Joanne Froggatt has hinted there will be a surprise conclusion to season two.

This conclusion will wrap up the series as the star claimed there will not be a third season.

The tense ITV drama, which returns for its much anticipated second season, will be back on TV screens on March 2. 

Joanne, 39, admitted this season will wrap up the storyline which follows her lead role Laura trying to understand what happened to her after a date with Andrew Earlham (played by Ioan Gruffudd).

Very topical, the show hooked audience members as it played out scenes on the delicate topic of sexual assault.

“This will be the end of Andrew and Laura’s story,” she recently told The Sun . 

“I think it’s really honest with the viewers. There’s nothing worse than investing your time in something and then you get to season three and think: ‘Oh, it’s all gone too far. I don’t believe it.’"

The actress went on to explain how proud she was of the dramatic series which drew to a close with several cliff hangers.

When the show hit our screens back in 2017, the tense mystery kept an average of 6.7 million viewers gripped as they tuned in to learn more details about Laura and Andrew.

Andrew furiously denied he had raped her but ended up being murdered at the end of last season.

Since playing the victim in the first season, Joanne was also shocked at how many people have reached out to share their own cases of sexual assault with her.

“I’ve had quite a few people come up and speak to me about their experiences of waking up one morning and thinking, ‘I know I’ve had sex and I don’t remember it, maybe I was spiked’,” the actress said.

"People would talk about their experiences of being sexually assaulted and not feeling able to come forward, having woken up in a very similar situation to Laura.”

The second season will introduce a new character called DI Karen Renton – plated by Katherine Kelly – who has been tasked into investigating Andrew’s murder.

The second season will last just five parts.

It will air at 9pm on ITV this Monday.

MirrorOnline have contacted Joanne's representative for comment.
