'The Stranger' Finally Drops On Netflix This Thursday
We've certainly been looking forward to it, partially because the plot looks gripping, and partly because the cast line-up looks stellar.
With lead roles snapped up by Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) who will play Adam Price, Dervla Kirwan (Silent Witness) who plays Corrine Price, Siobhan Finneran (A Confession, Happy Valley, Cold Feet) who will play DS Johanna Griffin and Hannah John-Kamen (Game of Thrones) who will play 'the stranger,' it has major appeal. Joining them too is Jennifer Saunders, Paul Kaye and Kadiff Kirwan.
We told you it was packed with notable faces.
But the plot, based on the novel by Harlan Coben, sounds enough to get us tuning in on its own.
The creepy trailer starts to unravel what it's all about with one of the opening lines: "What if our darkest secrets were exposed by a stranger?"
As it rolls onwards, we find out that Corrine has been covering up a big secret - one that saw her lie to her husband Adam about having miscarried. She was in fact never pregnant at all.
But the only reason Adam finds out is because a stranger pops up to reveal the secret, something she seems to keep doing in order to cause devastation to people throughout the trailer.
Soon, Corrine goes missing and suddenly her name pops up in relation to a murder scene, with law enforcement telling Adam: "We have reason to believe your wife was at the scene of a murder".
According to Netflix, the revelations lead Adam down a dark path trying to uncover who his wife really is, but people close to him could end up getting hurt.
The eight-part thriller is now ready to watch (finally!) after a lot of teasing from Netflix over the past months and we will certainly be tuning in.
Weekend plans, sorted.
The Stranger is now available to watch on Netflix.
