According to Deadline, Lucifer vet Tom Ellis has signed on as a series regular for Hulu’s upcoming Tell Me Lies Season 2.
Ellis is set to portray the role of Oliver, who’s described as “a professor at Baird College whose tough love attitude makes him an intimidating presence that isn’t appreciated by all students. He is married to Lucy’s professor Marianne, but as one of the main characters begins seeking his approval, his influence will have chaotic repercussions.”
This marks the latest project that Ellis will be working on with wife and showrunner Meaghan Oppenheimer. They are also recently developing another Hulu series titled Second Wife, with Emma Roberts attached to star.
