When she is not making chart-topping hits and Rare Beauty makeup, the pop star spends her time watching true crime documentaries or listening to crime podcasts.

She even once went to CrimeCon - a weekend event that lets true crime fans experience analyzing and solving an actual case.

“You go and get an actual case that’s open,” Gomez explained in an interview. “Sometimes it’s been open for 20 years, other times it’s sooner, but basically you get to go in and be a part of the case. It’s real, and it’s really crazy. You go there as someone who wants to help solve the case.”

The second season will be tackling the aftermath of the new murder that happened on the finale of season one.

Show creator John Hoffman shared to Elle that Mabel Mora, played by Gomez, will be in the spotlight more in the upcoming episodes.

"They're all in the hot seat. They've all stepped in it, and Mabel is certainly even a bit more in the spotlight," Hoffman said. "The opportunity that might come from that is what's intriguing to us as we go into a season two. Mabel's life is going to get a little bit bigger in season 2."
