Jessica Biel has snagged a shock Golden Globe nomination for her role in murder mystery, The Sinner.

In fact, the series which is available on Netflix, has been so well received they're now considering making a second season.

The actress made the exciting revelation to Entertainment Weekly after discovering she'd been nominated for best actress for her portrayal of Cora Tannetti.

"We are really hoping to hear soon if we get to come back or not," she told the publication, explaining the show had always been intended to be a limited series.

"So it was a surprise to us as well that, with the amazing viewership and the incredible journey that this show has taken, it was even a possibility to come back," the 7th Heaven star added, revealing the writers had been working really hard to come up with something "fresh."

The Sinner, which is a psychological thriller filled with twists, follows the story of a mum (Biel) who seemingly snaps one day and murders a stranger.

It has received rave reviews, something Jessica's hubby Justin Timberlake has publicly gushed about.

While Jessica, 35, has been hugely successful with her latest on-screen venture, the mum-of-one has been having troubles with her side project, a family restaurant Au Fudge.

The TV star is currently caught up in a legal case against 15 employees who are suing over unpaid tips.
