The Trailer For Netflix Thriller 'The Stranger' Is Here And It Looks So Good

The Trailer For Netflix Thriller 'The Stranger' Is Here And It Looks So Good

The trailer has landed for Netflix's star-studded psychological thriller The Stranger, starring Jennifer Saunders and Richard Armitage - and it already looks set to be a gripping watch.

Based on Harlan Coben's book of the same name, The Stranger will follow Adam Price, who discovers a life-changing secret about his wife, Corinne - leaving him questioning everything he thought he knew about her.

When dad-of-two Adam is approached by a woman in a bar calling herself the stranger - complete with a shifty-looking baseball cap - he delves into his wife's secret life and ends up unravelling a conspiracy that could threaten to tear his whole family apart.

The official trailer opens with happy clips of the Price family on car trips and fooling around at home, before cutting to the fateful scene in the bar.

"You didn't have to stay with her you know," begins the stranger as she approaches Adam in the bar. "Corinne. You didn't have to stay with her when she told you she was pregnant."

"I'm sorry. Do I know you?," Adam replies.

The stranger then reveals Corinne's secret - that she was never pregnant and has lied to him.

"Who are you and why are you saying this?", Adam asks the stranger, to which she replies: "Think of me as a stranger. A stranger that knows."

The encounter leaves Adam suitably spooked and he starts looking for answers to what the stranger knows about his wife and why Corinne has lied to him.

The Stranger stars Spooks actor Richard Armitage as Adam and Dervla Kirwan as his wife Corinne.

Meanwhile, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and The Wasp) will play the main character, described by Netflix as "a mysterious stranger who exposes people's secrets, dropping bombshells that will shatter lives."

Alongside the A-list actors, TV favourite Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) will play the character of Heidi, best friend to Happy Valley's Siobhan Finneran, who plays DS Johanna Griffin.

In her first dramatic role, Saunders will play "an outgoing character who is seeking adventure after her daughter leaves for university".

Other actors to appear in the show are Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones), Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Kadiff Kirwan (Call the Midwife).

The eight-part series reunites the team behind previous production, Safe, and is described as "VERY twisty and mysterious" according to Netflix.

It was filmed around Manchester, Bolton and Stockport from March until August last year.

We can't wait to watch this mind-bending drama unravel.

The Stranger will land on Netflix on 30th January.
