Amazing first trailer released for new Netflix Harlan Coben thriller

The first trailer for Harlan Coben’s upcoming thriller, Fool Me Once, has dropped – and it looks amazing.

Many of you will likely be familiar with Coben’s previous work, with the mystery thriller writer being the genius behind The Stranger and Safe. The author then turned both the novels into hugely popular Netflix series.

His work has become famous for being full of intrigue, plot twists and drama, and the series were streamed by millions.

Now, the first trailer has been released for his newest project.

With a cast including Michelle Keegan, Richard Armitage, Joanna Lumley, the series is based on the book of the same name, and revolves around couple Joe (Armitage) and Maya (Keegan).

The trailer shows Joe being killed by an unidentified shooter, with Maya then seen mourning her husband at his funeral.

But when he later shows up on her toddler’s nanny cam, she starts to wonder whether all is as it seems.

The series synopsis reads: “Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce (Adeel Akhtar) leads the homicide investigation into Joe’s death while grappling with secrets of his own.

“Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew, Abby and Daniel, are trying to find the truth about their mother’s murder, several months earlier. Are the two cases connected?

Fool Me Once follows these characters on a thrilling hunt for the truth that will reveal shocking secrets and change their lives forever.”

Viewers are teased with the prospect that Joe had “stumbled upon something big” before his death, and it’s fair to say our curiosity has been piqued.

Fans were left thrilled by the trailer, with one writing: “If it’s as good as the book, it’ll be well worth watching.”

Another said: “This is what I’m waiting for!”

A third commented: “So looking forward to this!”

The series is arriving on Netflix until New Year’s Day, the perfect thing to get you through the cold January evenings.
