Fans of The Sinner and Dexter will absolutely love Netflix’s new mystery thriller

Paul Moore

It stars Dexter himself, Michael C. Hall, and looks really addictive.

If you’re looking for a new thriller to binge on, Netflix have announced that Michael C. Hall – better known as Dexter to most people – is returning to TV and his new project looks really interesting.

In Safe, he plays a father that’s searching for his teenage daughter after she mysteriously vanishes. Ultimately, Tom Delaney (Michael C. Hall) begins unearthing dark secrets about the people closest to him.

Tom’s wife died a year ago and he’s bringing up his two daughters, living in a beautiful gated community, with close friends nearby and a new relationship. But when his eldest daughter disappears in mysterious circumstances, he realises that he knows nothing about the people closest to him – dark secrets about the people he loves and the place where he lives.

Partners, children, lovers, parents, and friends – does anyone really know the people they love? And how well do people know Tom? As the story opens, Tom, a paediatric surgeon and single father to two teenage daughters, is still reeling from the death of his beloved wife. Now he’s in over his head trying to juggle his new life – raising two daughters and dealing with his grief over Rachel’s death. Because, as we come to understand, the guilt Tom feels is rooted in moral complexity – a mystery from the night of his wife’s death that will be revealed.

Ultimately, we will learn the truth about how Tom’s wife died. We will learn the reason for Tom’s guilt from that night. We will learn that Jenny has a secret from that night – something that set her down a dark path of discovery that now threatens to blow families and a community apart.

In the final reckoning, there will be redemption.

Much like The Sinner, this promises to be a gripping thriller that slowly builds to a dramatic conclusion. Safe arrives on Netflix on 10 May.

Here’s a look at what’s in store.
