Netflix's New Psychological Thriller Behind Her Eyes Will Be Your Next Binge Watch
Behind Her Eyes is a six-part drama, which dropped on the streaming platform this morning, and stars Simona Brown, Tom Bateman and Eve Hewson.
It's based on the best-selling novel by Sarah Pinborough and is produced by the same makers of The Crown (so let's face it, it's gonna be good). You can watch the trailer below:
So what's it all about? Well, Simona Brown plays Louise, a single mum who ends up having an affair with her boss, psychiatrist David (Tom Bateman).
In a random twist of fate, she ends up befriending his wife Adele (Eve Hewson) and finds herself embroiled in the secrets and lies within their marriage.
The six part drama also stars Robert Aramayo and is produced by Left Bank Pictures (The Crown) and written by Steve Lightfoot and Angela LaManna.
Since the trailer dropped earlier this month, fans of the book have been so excited to get stuck into the series.
We won't give away any spoilers, but if you've read the book, you'll know there's a major twist at the end - so much so that when the book was first released, #WTFthatending started trending on Twitter.

Ahead of the Netflix release, one person wrote: "Behind her Eyes is on Netflix and if you into psychological thrillers like You and Undone it is a MUST WATCH because it was a flipping good read."
While another added: "Omg why didn't anyone tell me Netflix was adapting Behind Her Eyes! And it comes out tomorrow!!!! That book was so wild. The ending..."
Speaking about the adaptation, Eve Hewson explained she was cast as Adele very late in the process.
"I had two days to get on a plane and then I had two weeks of prep before we started shooting. And that was rehearsals and basically just working on the accent because I'd never done a British accent before and I was freaking out about that," she told InStyle.
"So I hadn't read the book. Honestly, I read the scripts on the plane. I didn't know what I was signing up for. So it became a more intuitive way to get into the character.
"Every day I just sort of tried new things and the director, Erik [Richter Strand], he's got kind of a twisted, unpredictable kind of taste. So he allowed me to just go for it and play with it and try something strange or bizarre."
It certainly sounds like an unmissable watch... you can catch all six episodes on Netflix now.
