Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) plays Adam Price, the series’ protagonist who finds himself tangled in a mysterious web of deception. His steady life, two wonderful sons and watertight marriage all seem unassailable – until The Stranger reveals a shocking secret about his wife.

Siobhan Finneran’s punchy police detective, Johanna Griffin, finds her pragmatic approach to police work compromised when her investigation into the matter becomes deeply personal.

Finneran said: “I am thrilled to be working with RED again - it’s been a brilliant 20-year relationship and I feel very lucky and blessed to have that with them. After the success and utter joy of working on Happy Valley with them, it’s great to now be involved in such a new and exciting project.”

Anthony Head said: “I am so pleased to be working with Nicola Shindler and Harlan Coben. They’ve both built such brilliant reputations, creating shows in which mystery runs dark and deep, while being utterly believable. The Stranger is just such a fantastic script – Harlan’s concept is genius.”

Dervla Kirwan’s character, Corrine Price, is a well-respected teacher, a loving wife to Adam and mother to their two sons. When Adam learns a terrible secret about his wife from The Stranger, he confronts her but she disappears, kick-starting a chain of events with potentially devastating results.

Renowned actor Stephen Rea will take on the role of Martin Rinksy, a retired police detective who still has connections in the field. As Adam turns to him for help, the former policeman is soon forced to confront events from the past.

Also starring in the Netflix thriller:

Shaun Dooley takes the role of Doug Tripp, a dedicated family man. Tripp detects problems within Adam Price’s household – but does he know more than he’s letting on?

Paul Kaye joins as John Katz, a man pushed to extremes for the sake of his family.

Kadiff Kirwan will star as Wesley Ross, a young detective constable working alongside DS Griffin. When Johanna asks Wes to keep an explosive secret, his loyalty is tested.

The Stranger is the third collaboration for RED Production Company (a STUDIOCANAL company), Harlan Coben and Netflix, following the success of The Five and 2018 hit Harlan Coben’s Safe, which starred Michael C. Hall.
