Before you finish writing up your list of must-see TV series' for spooky season, you're going to want to check out gripping new psychological thriller The Ex-Wife.
The four-part drama series is based on bestselling author Jess Ryder's novel of the same name, and is guaranteed to have you sitting on the edge of your seat from start to the bitter end.
Don't believe me? See for yourself:
Pretty hair-raising, wouldn't you say?
The Ex-Wife will tell the harrowing story of Tasha (Céline Buckens), who seemingly has the perfect life, from her family home to her loving husband Jack (Tom Mison) and their beautiful baby girl Emily.
But there's one large blot on Tasha's life - her husband's ex-wife Jen (Janet Montgomery) won't leave them alone and seems intent on staying in the picture with incessant calls and visits.
However, when Tasha's world comes crashing down and her perfect world starts to fall apart, she finds herself with no choice but to turn to the woman she loathes most for help. But can she trust her? And how well do Tasha and Jen really know their husband?
Alongside Céline Buckens (Showtrial), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow) and Janet Montgomery (New Amsterdam), the series also stars Jordan Stephens - who many may recognise as one half of Rizzle Kicks - playing Tasha's friend Sam.
Following his chart-topping music career, Jordan made his acting debut in E4's drama Glue, before going on to star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as well as the second season of comedy-drama series Feel Good.
"I have been so fortunate to have worked with such a talented cast and crew," Jordan commented.
"The Ex-Wife is a compelling thriller full of twists and turns. I can’t wait for the audience to see how this story unfolds. Expect the unexpected.”
That's enough to keep us hooked.
Jess Ryder's novel has been compared to popular thrillers like The Girl On The Train and Gone Girl, so if you love a dark psychological tale full of twists and turns, then this is the series for you.
To make things even more interesting, the novel has been adapted for the screen by Catherine Steadman, who has written her fair share of thriller novels, like Something In The Water, The Disappearing Act, and, most recently, The Family Game.
The Ex-Wife will be available to stream on Paramount+ from 12 October in the UK.
