JESSICA BIEL TALKS THE SINNER SEASON 2: Jessica Biel, who received an Emmy nomination for her work on USA Network’s The Sinner, opened up about striking the right balance in playing such a complex character: "I think the reason I love her so much is because of her compassion and because of her tenderness; quite honestly, she is a survivor." The second season of The Sinner premiered August 1st, but Biel says several elements have yet to play out. "We are going to take you through a human experience. We are going to expose an underbelly of maybe a location or an experience or a relationship between two people or multiple people. We want to hold onto all of that feeling the language of the show, the atmospheric quality, the silence of the show," said Biel.
