The jury might still be out on whether we’ll be getting a third season of Big Little Lies following the explosive second season, but fans of Liane Moriarty will be pleased to hear that the Australian author is getting yet another one of her hit novels adapted for the small screen.
Nine Perfect Strangers, based on Moriarty’s 2018 novel of the same name, is Hulu’s latest project with both Melissa McCarthy and Nicole Kidman on board as executive producers. Here’s everything we know about it so far…
What is Nine Perfect Strangers about?
Those who have read Moriaty’s novel will be familiar with the story which is based in a remote wellness resort. Here, nine strangers who have all signed up for different reasons, whether it’s for weight loss or recovery from heartbreak, come together to get help to better their lives. They’re led by a woman named Masha, who manages the retreat and is determined to reinvigorate their minds and bodies with a series of methods, including making guests ditch addictive things such as sugar, caffeine and the most addictive of all: technology.
Who has been cast?
As well as being executive producers on the show, Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy also both star in the cast. Kidman takes the role of resort leader Masha, while McCarthy will play Frances Welty, a former author who arrives at the retreat as one of the nine strangers to get over a broken heart.
Also starring in the mini-series is Tiffany Boone (Little Fires Everywhere), Bobby Cannavale (Homecoming), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water) and Regina Hall (Girls Trip).
In April, Nicole shared a preview of the trailer on her Instagram and it looks, quite frankly, gripping.
The full-length trailer was released in the middle of June and now we’re simultaneously excited and terrified.
When will it air?
According to Hulu, Nine Perfect Strangers is ‘coming soon’. Exactly what that means, however, we can’t be sure. Fingers crossed we won’t be waiting too long!
