Stay Close Is The New Netflix Thriller By The Creator Of The Stranger

Stay Close Is The New Netflix Thriller By The Creator Of The Stranger

A new eight-part thriller series from the team behind The Stranger has been announced by Netflix.

Stay Close will feature James Nesbitt, Cush Jumbo and Richard Armitage, and will follow the dark stories of the three main characters.

It's based on Harlan Coben's best-selling novel of the same name, which takes a long cold look at the idea of how well you can ever really know anyone else.

As per Netflix's description, the story shows three people who are living steady, comfortable lives but who each have secrets that even their closest family and friends don't suspect.

Megan (played by Jumbo) is a mother of three and Ray (played by Armitage) was once a documentary photographer who is stuck in a job he hates, while James Nesbitt's character Broome is a detective who can't let go of a cold case he once worked on.

Armitage said: "I can't wait to return to Manchester to work with Nicola, Danny, Harlan and the team again. I love Harlan's style and this plot and character will be brilliantly challenging.

"At a time when we have remained apart, Stay Close promises to break all the rules."

Coben added: "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!"
