Lie To Me returns to TV3

8:30pm – Wednesday, August 4 on TV 3

Human lie detector Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) returns to our screens in the highly anticipated continuation of Lie to Me’s second season, screening on Wednesday, August 4th 8:30pm on 3.

After a six-month hiatus, this week sees Lie to Me kicking off the second half of Season Two with a thrill: “It gets wilder and wilder really,” Tim Roth tells Zap2it.

“It gets more and more eccentric, which I enjoy. We look into his relationship with his daughter. We look at his relationship with Foster and how that came about. And we go into his background as well, just independently of that. So we open up another new territory.”

Roth continues, explaining this new territory: “The aim of the character is someone that dances around in sort of the edge of the law, and even in his relationships with women,” Roth explains.

“It’s a very hard thing for a man that has that scientific kind of ability to have a relationship, and so we’re exploring that – what it’s like for him, and what it’s like for the women around him.”

Roth says he really got interested in his character during the second season, around the time he started to find out more about the man behind the intriguing scientific ability.

“What I liked in the second season was, there was one episode for example where a friend of his came in from London… and when we started to look into his background and look into, you know, his childhood and that aspect of him, I started to get interested,” Roth explains.

“I started to feel there was some real potential there. And then we did an episode, which I don’t think we’ve shown, where we see Foster and Lightman, where they met for the first time… So, character driven but science driven at the same time is the kind of stuff that appeals to me.”

And it’s these two aspects that make the series such a unique watch. Make sure not to miss it when Lie to Me returns on Wednesday, August 4th 8:30pm on 3.
