Bomer is on board to play Jame, a Dorchester resident who is in good graces with the community. 

He looks to Ambrose for support following the deadly accident. 

The Sinner has been a hit since its debut on USA Network, securing multiple awards nominations. 

That being said, The Sinner Season 2 slid almost 50 percent in the demo. It averaged a 0.3 rating but remained as one of the network's top-rated series.

Bomer has also appeared on American Horror Story, The Last Tycoon, and even the Magic Mike franchise. 

The Sinner joins Queen of the South, The Purge, Suits, and Mr. Robot in the renewal circuit. 

USA Network has yet to reveal when the third season will air, but given that the first two seasons launched in August, it's likely the new run will have launch then.
