The show follows the lives of a number of families, whose lies and secrets are revealed after a stranger appears. It’s based on the highly successful novel of the same name, written by Harlan Coben. Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) leads the cast as Adam Price, whose life is turned upside down after a shocking revelation. Ooooh, mysterious!

Netflix has described the titular Stranger as “a mysterious stranger who exposes people’s secrets, dropping bombshells that will shatter lives”, giving us the sense we’re in for some seriously dramatic stuff.
