The new Netflix series Fool Me Once has been given a release date along with first-look images. It is an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s book, that centres around Michelle Keegan’s character, Maya Starn, a former special ops pilot who grapples with the tragic murder of her husband, Joe, portrayed by Richard Armitage.
The plot takes a turn when she observes, via the nanny cam, a familiar face in her home—her supposedly deceased husband playing with their baby daughter. Adeel Akhtar’s character, Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce, spearheads the investigation into Joe’s death while wrestling with his own hidden truths.
Adding to the complexity, Maya’s niece and nephew, Abby and Daniel, seek answers about their mother’s murder months earlier. The looming question remains: could the two incidents be intertwined in some way?
The eight-part series is set to debut on Netflix from Monday, January 1st. The streaming service has unveiled a new set of preview images, showcasing additional cast members like Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
Production crews were spotted in the Burdock Way area near Halifax’s town center, including scenes involving sports cars, according to the Halifax Courier.
In May, the 35-year-old actress was seen filming scenes in Manchester, accompanied by a film crew, while sporting a somber demeanor in a Burberry coat.
Michelle Keegan, renowned for her roles in “Coronation Street” and “Brassic,” stars in this new crime drama alongside Richard Armitage, Adeel Akhtar, and Joanna Lumley.
Screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst said: “Following on from our smash hits ‘The Stranger’ and ‘Stay Close,’ ‘Fool Me Once’ does not disappoint.
“Harlan’s books are storytelling genius and it’s great to be entrusted once more in bringing his gripping stories of life. As always with our thrillers, expect twist upon twist and an emotional roller-coaster. Plus, the cast is phenomenal – audiences are in for a treat!”
The Netflix crime drama Fool Me Once is set to air on January 1st, 2024 – what a way to start the New Year.
