Netflix confirms connection between its two most popular series

Netflix confirms connection between its two most popular series

You may have missed the link

Netflix has revealed that two of its popular shows have an interesting link you may have missed.

Harlan Coben’s latest thriller series Fool Me Once landed on the streaming service on New Year’s Day and has quickly shot up the most watched list. You can check out the trailer here:

Just like Coben’s earlier work, such as Stranger and Safe, Fool Me Once has enough twists and turns to keep viewers firmly on the edge of their seat across the series’s eight episodes - including a pretty big plot twist at the end that most folks didn’t see coming.

The hit show stars Brassic’s Michelle Keegan as Maya Stern, a young mum trying to come to terms with the murder of her husband Joe (Richard Armitage).

However, just days after burying her husband, Maya spots Joe on a secret nanny cam at their home looking very much alive.

Also starring Joanna Lumley as Joe's mother Judith and Adeel Akhtar as the detective leading the investigation into his murder, Fool Me Once kept viewers gripped.

Fool Me Once stars Michelle Keegan.

But there’s one small detail you may have missed that links it to the wildly popular Peaky Blinders.

If you think back to Joe’s family home, where Judith still lives, you might realise it looks a little bit familiar, as it’s also used as the home of Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) in Peaky Blinders.

Confirming the link, the official Netflix UK Instagram account shared a screenshot from Fool Me Once alongside one from Peaky Blinders and wrote: “They really thought they could fool us with Tommy Shelby's house.”

In real-life the stunning location is Arley Hall in Cheshire and has been used in numerous other TV shows, including Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.

Netflix confirmed the link on Instagram.

The estate's general manager, Bridge Roberts, told Creative England's Filming in England: "Arley Hall was thrilled to be chosen as one of the main locations for the new Netflix drama Fool Me Once.

"Filming took place in several locations including the formal gardens, the Hall (interior and exterior) and the grounds and roads at Arley from April through to July."

Bridge went on to say that the team had been ‘thrilled to meet Joanna Lumley, who is as lovely in real life as she is on our screens, and she was particularly interested in the history of Arley and the Hall in which she was filming’.

And you can check it out for yourself, as Fool Me Once and Peaky Blinders are both available to stream on Netflix now.
