Ryan Phillippe Won't Return for 'Secrets & Lies' Season 2

Ryan Phillippe has basically confirmed that he will not return for another season of Secrets and Lies if the series gets renewed.

The 40-year-old actor starred on the ABC show and the ratings have been increasing leading up to last night’s season finale.

Before the episode began on Sunday night (May 3), Ryan took to Twitter to answer some fan questions. One person asked if a second season will happen.

“ask abc. My story ends tonight,” Ryan replied.

DO YOU THINK there should be a second season of Secrets and Lies?

Click inside to find out what happened on the season finale…

It was revealed that the person who killed Tom Murphy was Ben Crawford’s (Phillippe) daughter Abby. She had heard her dad arguing with her mom over the affair he had with Tom’s mom Jess Murphy. She decided that if she and Tom ran away that Tom’s dad would come back to Jess and that her own parents would stay together.

While running away, Tom wanted to go back home and Abby wouldn’t let him so she hit him over the head with the flashlight, ultimately killing him.

To make sure his daughter doesn’t go to jail, Ben confesses to the murder. Detective Andrea Cornell (Juliette Lewis) knows that he did not commit the murder and knows it was Abby. She doesn’t have proof though, but she vows to put her in jail.

    He’s so unprofessional. First going public about his desperation to be in a Marvel TV Show on Netflix, and completely disrespecting his current show. Second, spoiling the story for his fans by telling them he won’t return in season 2. Lastly, showing passive-aggression towards ABC.

    Well the story was intended to last a season. It is like American Horror Story… I was thinking if they continued it, the only character to return would be Julliet Lewis, as agent Cornell as she continues to go after another crime suspect.. This was based off the Australian series which also last just 10 episodes. And how is he being desperate about talking about casting rumors. He is being honest. Marvel itself is releasing rumors of the final 2 spider man actors to be cast… It is just show business..

    Calm down, TUTU. ABC and Ryan and Juliette Lewis have said again and again that if the show is renewed it will be Juliette and another crime. Ryan was just restating that under a number of characters restriction.

    I was a little disappointed on how they ended it and then they had the nerve to tell you to watch the final conclusion online (which I have not done). My understanding based on what I read from those who did watch that it is presumed he died in prison. Poor Ben. Put his life on the line for his psycho little girl who will grow up to be an adult psycho.

    Exactly, weeks ago Ryan said he would not return to the series. He at no time spoiling the story, because he never said what would happen to his character.

    If Ryan were a desperate actor, he would have signed for 5 seasons of ‘Secrets and Lies’ and had said that YES to Netflix. (But it is only in talks)

    But is not the case. Because Ryan has never been a desperate actor and much less unprofessional.

    The Australian version only had 6 episodes.

  • Blah!

    Good for him. It was so bad. I can’t believe I watched 10 episodes.

    I guess my problem is that I got caught up with the Characters. Especially Natalie and Jess I realize that this is just a show and all, but I got caught up in it. I don’t watch TV except for the news but the spoiler caught my eye. I think of Jess who lost the love of her life and Natalie who now has no father. Yes it is make believe but the way it ended sucks. So from now on if it doesn’t continue I am done with it. So many of those other shows are just a lot of violence and there is no humanity involved like it was with this show. The human interest part is what attracted me. I think of the scene where Jessy was putting the flowers in her car for her son’s funeral. Yes I know. It is just a show.
