Now that you've finished bingeing the second season of Sex/Life, Netflix has yet another raunchy series in store for its subscribers. Check out the spicey trailer for Obsession below:
The four-part series follows the intense sexual affair between William Farrow (Richard Armitage), a talented surgeon, and Anna Barton (Charlie Murphy), his son’s fiancée, which, according to the official synopsis, 'spirals into a dangerous, all-consuming obsession, with devastating consequences for the whole family'.

The cast also includes Indira Varma as William's wife Ingrid Farrow, Rish Shah as Anna's fiancé Jay Farrow, Pippa Bennett-Warner as Anna’s best friend Peggy, Sonera Angel as Sally Farrow, Anil Goutam as Ingrid’s father Edward, and Marion Bailey as Anna’s mother Elizabeth.
The trailer teases the flirtatious relationship between Anna and William as they secretly grow closer and we mean literally, with ropes, ribbons and all the S&M trimmings.
And it’s all set to a very dramatic version of Kylie Minogue’s classic hit ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’.
Netflix dropped the trailer on Wednesday and with only a few weeks to go until the entire season is released, it’s already gone down a treat with subscribers.
“If my father in law was Richard Armitage, I’d be cheating too,” one viewer declared.
Another fan commented: “I’m obsessed with the music!! Such an amazing cover of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’!! So intense… Looking forward to the show!”
A third wrote: “Had me sold on Richard Armitage… that man’s voice is just wonderful to listen to. Looking forward to this, can’t wait - also Indira Varma is also great!”
A fourth excited social media user said: “Actually, this looks better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Can't f**king wait!"
And Netflix will be pleased to hear that one fan will be ‘watching the s**t outta this the day it comes out’.
Although the plot may sound like the iconic Max, Stacey and Bradley love triangle from EastEnders, like many great series before it, Obsession is based on a book - Josephine Hart’s 1991 novel Damage.
Morgan Lloyd Malcolm adapted the novel this time around after the book was adapted into a film of the same name in 1992 starring Jeremy Irons, Juliette Binoche, Miranda Richardson, Rupert Graves and Ian Bannen.
Adelaide Waldrop worked as the series’ intimacy coordinator for the sex scenes following her work on another Netflix series you might’ve heard of, the huge hit You.
Obsession will be your new obsession from 13 April, when it drops on Netflix.
