Hulu has confirmed a straight-to-series order for Nine Perfect Strangers, based on Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty’s latest book. The series reunites a large chunk of the team behind the HBO adaptation of Big Little Lies—David E. Kelley and John Henry Butterworth will be co-writing the series, while Nicole Kidman and Bruna Papandrea are executive producing.
The series is set to stream on Hulu—tentatively—by the end of 2020, but here’s what we know about Nine Perfect Strangers thus far.
What is the plot of Nine Perfect Strangers?
Nine Perfect Strangers follows nine Australians who converge on a ‘boutique’ health and wellness resort called Tranquillum House, all looking to change their lives in some way. Kidman will play the resort’s director Masha, a domineering guru on a mission to heal the lives of the spa-goers. However, these nine ‘perfect’ strangers have no idea what’s in tow for them.
The synopsis of the Nine Perfect Strangers appears vague at this time, but fans of Big Little Lies are certain to fall into a web of intrigue upon the show’s release.
Who is set to star in Nine Perfect Strangers?
Originally, it was announced that Nicole Kidman was going to play the mysterious Masha, who leads the retreat. The cast also includes heavy hitters such as Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Asher Keddie, Grace Van Patten, Tiffany Boone and Manny Jacinto.
So that’s definitely a very heavy hitting cast to get things going.
Is there a trailer for Nine Perfect Strangers?
Yes! A trailer for the upcoming Hulu series was recently released. In it, we saw the cast for Nine Perfect Strangers getting in touch with their feelings and letting the drama flow in a big way. Nicole Kidman also made a big impact on the trailer, looking slightly too perfect as she helps the people chosen for the retreat deal with their demons. Was it unsettling? We’re going to say yes. But the trailer was definitely enough to intrigue us to say the least.
