Another gripping Netflix crime drama series adapted from a Harlan Coben novel, following the success of shows like Safe, and The Stranger. Stay Close is adapted from a Harlan Coben novel of the same name that follows the lives of three people whose past secrets are catching up to them. Read the official synopsis for the new series here:
“With trademark thrills, gripping suspense and secrets of past crimes beginning to unravel, ‘Stay Close’ questions how much you really know someone. Four people each conceal dark secrets from those closest to them; Megan (Cush Jumbo) a working mother of three, Ray (Richard Armitage), a once-promising documentary photographer, Broome (James Nesbitt) a detective unable to let go of a missing person’s cold case, and Lorraine (Sarah Parish), an old friend of Megan’s. As the past comes back to haunt them, threatening to ruin their lives and the lives of those around them, what will be their next move?”
Who is Behind Stay Close?
The series is produced by Harlan Coben, as is his deal with Netflix, with Irish director Daniel O’Hara directing. O’Hara also worked with Coben on the incredible The Stranger, so we can’t wait to see what the pair brings to the table with this show.
Who Stars in Stay Close?
Richard Armitage, who also worked on The Stranger, will star as Ray, a photojournalist who is looking for his missing girlfriend. Armitage is best known for his work on The Hobbit, in which he played Thorin Oakenshield. Northern Irish actor James Nesbitt, who also played a dwarf, Bofur, in The Hobbit, stars in Stay Close as detective Michael Broome. The Good Wife actress Cush Jumbo stars as Megan Shaw, who used to be a stripper called Cassie. And Sarah Parish plays Lorraine, a woman from Megan’s past who she is not very happy to see again.
