New crime thriller series starring Michelle Keegan finally lands on Netflix this weekend

Fans can't wait to watch

It's New Year's Day, and we all know what that means.

It's a wonderful excuse to do ... absolutely nothing!

Whether you're feeling a bit worse for wear from the night before (we've all been there) or are simply in the mood to get cozy and start your year off right, then we've got a treat for you as Netflix has just dropped the ultimate thriller series for your lazy day watch this weekend.

You can check out the trailer here:

In Fool Me Once, Keegan plays Maya Stern, a woman who is dealing with the death of her husband Joe (played by The Hobbit's Richard Armitage).

That is until she spots him walking around on her nanny cam's footage.


After she realises her husband is still alive, Stern's whole life soon comes crashing down.

The official Netflix description continues: "Harlan Coben’s Fool Me Once follows Maya Stern (Michelle Keegan) who is trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of her husband, Joe (Richard Armitage).

"But when Maya installs a nanny-cam to keep an eye on her young daughter, she is shocked to see a man she recognises in her house. Her husband, who she thought was dead...

Michelle Keegan and Richard Armitage in Fool Me Once.

“Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce (Adeel Akhtar) leads the homicide investigation into Joe's death while grappling with secrets of his own.

"Meanwhile, Maya's niece and nephew, Abby and Daniel, are trying to find the truth about their mother's murder, several months earlier.

“Are the two cases connected? Fool Me Once follows these characters on a thrilling hunt for the truth that will reveal shocking secrets and change their lives forever."

The new series is of many based on Harlan Coben’s novel - which include The Stranger, Stray Close and Safe.

It also consists of eight 60-minute episode - making it perfecting binging fodder!

The show is based on Coben's novel of the same name.

As well as Keegan and Armitage, the cast also consists of Murdered by My Father's Adeel Akhtar, Banana's Dino Fetscher and Joanna Lumley as the mother of Armitage's Joe.

Commenting on the project earlier this year, Coben said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to once again be collaborating with my uber-talented partners Danny, Nicola and Richard.

Fool Me Once will be our fourth Netflix series [following Safe, The Stranger and Stay Close] together, and man, it never gets old!

Fool Me Once is a pulse-pounder - a shocking story of how secrets and deceit have the power to bring people together while simultaneously tearing them apart.

“I can’t wait to see how this dream cast brings these characters to life.”

Neither can we!
