Viewers hail drama with all-star cast that’s landed on BBC iPlayer as they compare it to Netflix’s Fool Me Once

The Amanda Seyfried series has gone down a treat with thriller fans

If you're on the hunt for a brand new binge-worthy boxset, boy, have we got the true crime thriller for you!

That's right, there's another heart-stopping limited series that's created a buzz this week just days after landing onto BBC iPlayer.

The series stars Amanda Seyfried.

Already this year, fans of nerve-wracking dramas have had their pick of the mix when it comes to new series' to sink their teeth into.

Fans of The Gentleman have been sent wild by the new Netflix addition - a spin-off of the Matthew McConaughey movie of the same name - and '10/10' series Maid has had heartbroken viewers calling for a second series.

Similarly, a chilling new Channel 4 documentary - branded by audiences as 'f*****g bizarre' - has blown viewers' minds, and Millie Bobby Brown's latest action-drama has given fans 'chills' since landing last week.

But if you've already sat through these shows and are on the look-out for something new, there's a huge-name, star-studded, biographic miniseries - rated an impressive 90 percent on review site Rotten Tomatoes - that has just landed onto BBC iPlayer, despite having first been released on Hulu in 2022.

The series has an all-star cast.

And being that it stars the likes of Mamma Mia beauty Amanda Seyfried, Lost favourite Naveen Andrews and Academy Award-winning Fargo star William H. Macy, you can bet your bottom dollar that this is bound to be a riveting watch.

We are, of course, talking about The Dropout, which centres on the rise and fall of disgraced biotechnology entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes and her blood-testing company Theranos.

For those unfamiliar with this staggering true story, as a 19-year-old Stanford dropout, Holmes fooled investors, doctors and journalists into thinking her new product Theranos would revolutionise the diseases diagnoses, by introducing a blood test that never actually worked.

Amid the colossal failings of the tests - which the Wall Street Journal later exposed - were telling one woman that she'd miscarried her child when she hadn't, and giving another patient a false positive HIV test.

The series tells a haunting true story.

For those who plan to sit through the eight-episode mini series, don't worry, we won't give you any spoilers.

However, when it comes to the cathartic takedown of a brazen fraud, this series really does provide the goods.

So much so, that a number of viewers have commended producers for recounting the heinous true story - littered with jaw-dropping plot twists - with such great attention to detail.

In fact, one viewer even went as far as to compare it to Netflix hit Fool Me Once, which send thriller fans into a frenzy earlier this year.

"I’m hooked on The Dropout," one penned on social media.

Another wrote: "I am hooked on The Dropout."

"The Dropout. Next is Fool Me Once," a third noted.
