The upcoming season of LIE TO ME sees the relationships and dynamics of The Lightman Group tested as a wedge is driven between Lightman and FOSTER (Kelli Williams), creating devastating consequences.

Meanwhile, with Lightman under pressure from his publisher to finish his book, a group of university students have been enlisted to help him focus on this project he’d rather ignore than complete.
