Whoa, here we have the big news, I think.
Ok, girls. Time to get that Netflix subscription: Richard has graduated from Epix to Netflix. According to Deadline Hollywood, Richard is going to take the lead on the new Harlan Coben series The Stranger. Read it here on the Deadline page. Or click to enlarge below:
Highlighted is what Richard says:
“I could barely contain my excitement reading Harlan Coben’s The Stranger; a nail biting thriller with a huge beating heart and a dash of social commentary for extra bite. I’m thrilled to be returning to work with Nicola Schindler and the brilliant creative team she has assembled.”
Right, ok, so that means I can throw Six in the bin. 😂 Because that was the best bet that we had in terms of figuring out which Harlan ´Coben Rich was going to star in. Everything else was already a foregone conclusion – not that difficult when Richie Baby is quite easy to read in terms of his Twitter follows. Harlan Coben √ – Nicola Shindler √…
Am I excited? Yes! I haven’t really followed the other series that have been made of Harlan Coben thrillers, but if I am correct the last one (The Five) was a British production. Which leads me to *desperately* hope that this will be a British setting, too – which will allow Richard to use his delicious English accent again. No offense to you lovely American ladies, and no disrespect to the lovely man – but Richard isn’t Richard when he’s grappling with an American accent imo. Anyway, filming to start in March 2019. Honestly – I can’t wait!!!! Fabulous news.
And no, I am not going to order The Stranger on eBay. This one I want to be unspoilt for.
Hooray Richard – can’t wait for your new show 😘
ETA: Richard has reacted to the news, too:
