But how much do we actually know about the hotly anticipated four-part drama? Here’s everything we know about the series so far.
What’s it about?
The show is based off of Louise Candlish’s book of the same name, which was a Sunday Times bestseller and won Book of the Year – Crime and Thriller at the 2019 British Book Awards.
The story follows Fi Lawson who returns home to see strangers moving into her home and her family possessions gone despite not knowing that her house was up for sale.
She then cannot locate her estranged husband who she desperately tries to find answers from. The drama series will then switch between timelines to show the couple’s life leading up to the present day.
The book’s synopsis reads: “She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling. How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?”
“Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores.
"As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime.”
Who’s in the cast?
So we have everyone’s fave Scottish drama king Martin Compston starring in the series as the husband of Fi, played by Tuppence Middleton who you may recognise from War and Peace and The Imitation Game.
The two will play the estranged couple and will be joined by Rupert Penry-Jones that viewers may remember from Whitechapel and The Drowning. He will play the character Toby and I May Destroy You’s Weruche Opia will join as Fi’s neighbour/best friend Merle as well as Your Honor’s Buket Komur will fill the shoes of the shadowy Wendy character.
When will it air?
Filming has begun in London but there’s no trailer or official air date yet.
Viewers can hope to see the drama before the end of 2021 though, dependent on the length of production.
Whenever it airs, we’ll be excited to see Martin Compston back on our screens.
