If you’re still reeling from the twists and turns of Netflix’s The Stranger, don’t worry. We’ve got another show that will have you biting your nails to the bone. Once you’ve binged all eight episodes of The Stranger, you’ll want to turn over to Safe.
Although The Stranger has catapulted author Harlan Coban into the mainstream, it isn’t the first of his books to be brought to life on the small screen. Better still, Safe is also on Netflix and is ready for your viewing pleasure.
Starring Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall, the story revolves around a struggling widower called Tom. Following the death of his wife two years earlier, Tom is shown as a devoted father who would do anything for his two daughters.
Things take a sinister turn when one goes missing at a house party, and Tom is forced delve into the secretive lives of his seemingly perfect neighbours.
Safe came out in 2018, and although it wasn’t originally as popular as The Stranger, it’s getting a renewed interest on the streaming service.
I recommend Safe to nearly everyone I meet.ó Sean Cameron (@scriptcomes1st) February 16, 2020
Which can be odd at a urinal. But still, itís so good I cannot filter myself.

Speaking of The Stranger, fans are calling for a second season after THAT cliffhanger ending. The show starred The Hobbit alumni Richard Armitage as leading man Adam Price, who discovers his entire married life has been an elaborate lie and goes on a quest to figure out the truth, as revelations spill all around him.
It is based on Coben’s 2015 book, which unfortunately for fans does not have a sequel. That wonít necessarily stop Netflix from storyboarding original content for a follow-up, however.
The End Of The F***ing World was based on a one-shot comic book of the same name, yet was extended into two series for TV, for example.

Either way, Coben’s shows are proving to be a hit. Considering the author has written over 30 novels, we’d best settle in for the long road and wait patiently for his next tantalising thriller.
