Lie to Me Season Two Spoilers: More About Lightman's Past to Come

at .

Maureen Ryan of The Chicago Tribune went on the Lie to Me set last week and spoke with new showrunner Shawn Ryan.

Said the creator of The Shield of his plans for season two:

"Within each standalone episode, we want to really delve into the emotional lives of these characters. Last year, a lot of episodes started with 'What’s the cool science?' and worked the episodes around that. This year, I think the approach is, 'What is the great character story we can tell in this episode - the mystery - and we will figure out the science at the end.'"
