Stay Close: Gripping New Thriller Dropping On Netflix This New Year's Eve

Stay Close: Gripping New Thriller Dropping On Netflix This New Year's Eve

Just what we need – a good, meaty drama to binge watch…

Cancel your New Year's Eve plans, we want to stay in with a gripping TV series to keep us company in the evening.

And it looks as if Netflix has delivered once again with their brand new thriller, Stay Close.

You can watch the trailer below.

The series is from the brilliant mind of American thriller writer Harlan Coben, who has also brought us Netflix smash hits The Stranger and Safe – so we just know this twisty turny thriller will be just as binge-worthy.

Stay Close follows Coben’s usual style of following those in the suburban middle classes hiding a dark secret, following Megan (played by Cush Jumbo), a working mum of three. However, when her old ‘friend’ Lorraine (Sarah Parish) finds her, Megan finds her life turned upside down, with moments from her past coming back to haunt her.

Megan is a happy mum of three (

Lorraine’s arrival has an impact on Ray (Richard Armitage, who previously starred in The Stranger) a failed documentary maker with an obsession, and Broome (James Nesbitt) – a detective obsessed with a case he never managed to solve.

The team behind the series, apart from Coben himself, includes some British writing heavyweights. Nicola Shindler, who has worked on Happy Valley and It’s a Sin, has worked on the show, as well as Brassic’s Danny Brocklehurst and Richard Fee, who were also involved with Coben’s other Netflix productions.

Speaking about the new series, Coben explained: “I am so happy and excited to Stay Close (pun intended) with Danny Brocklehurst, Nicola Shindler and Richard Fee — the same team that made The Stranger, Safe and The Five. And talk about a dream-come-true cast – Cush Jumbo, an incendiary and awesome talent; Jimmy Nesbitt, a legendary actor I always wanted to collaborate with; and wow, Richard Armitage back again!”

The series drops on Netflix on 31st December - so that's our binge-watch sorted.
