🚨WARNING: Semi-spoilers ahead!🚨
Netflix and mystery author Harlan Coben have teamed up again to bring fans another binge-worthy thriller series: Stay Close.
Stay Close is based on Harlan's 2012 bestselling psychological thriller novel of the same name.
It follows Megan Pierce (played by Cush Jumbo) — a woman seemingly living a picture-perfect life with her fiancé, Dave, and their three children.
Well, her quintessential world comes crashing down when Lorraine, a friend from her past, comes back to remind Megan of the wild life she left behind.
And when I say things did a complete 180 for Megan, I mean things IMMEDIATELY started spiraling out of control — like getting caught up in a murder investigation.
Oh, and that murder I mentioned? Yeah, that was just one of many killings happening in the area.
But the suspense doesn't stop there! Then, the show throws in a bunch of characters we aren't sure we should trust, like these happy-go-lucky theater kids with a dark side...
...and an ex-lover named Ray (played by Richard Armitage) who's still desperately obsessed with Megan.
By the end of each episode, you'll be questioning everything and trusting NO ONE!
But don't just take my word for it. Here's what people on Twitter are saying about it:
#StayClose on Netflix is a brilliant watch, I highly recommend it. Just as good (if not better) than The Stranger.
Thought I’d guessed the ending to Stay Close by episode 5 BUT they threw in a massive twist in the last few minutes, well done Netflix 😱👏🏼 #StayClose
Me After Every Episode Of Stay Close On Netflix
I just finished #StayClose and I have 2 takeaways:1. The police don't need to dangerously chase suspects and brutalize the public OR the accused in civilized countries.2. They can make a riveting show without graphic sex scenes and constant swearing. 10/10 #StayClosenetflix
Stay Close on Netflix is good but I don’t get why the woman dyed her hair, changed her name and ran away to… round the corner ??
Same energy #StayClose #Netflix
That plot twist at the end of #StayClose on Netflix I wasn't ready...
Watch #stayclose on @netflix. So amazing, has made me want to read all of @HarlanCoben books. Next is ‘The Stranger’.
The way I’m hooked on these Netflix limited series by Harlan Coben 😭 first Stay Close, now the Stranger. I’m never going to sleep 🥴
Just binge watched ‘Stay Close’ and oh my christ. The ending. 🤯 #StayClosenetflix

These two.. are.. um, what’s going on in this show hi ahahah #StayClose #StayClosenetflix
#StayClose series on Netflix got me asking so many questions...also, does Cassie ever actually work?
I hope these two actors take this as the compliment it is meant to be when I say they made me feel slightly sick 😱 #StayClosenetflix
Damnnnnn. Me at the ending .. figuring out what happened to Carlton :#stayclose
Stay Close on Netflix is everything I love in a show wrapped into one. British accents. Badass Black female lead. Some queer shit. Hella mystery and intrigue.
I just finished watching the series #StayClosenetflix..I'm not going to leave any spoiler alerts but it's the best murder mystery I have watched since the beginning of this pandemic and you can trust and believe I've watched everything on Netflix worth watching👌 10 Stars
