10 Shows You Must Watch If You Can't Get Enough of Hulu's Nine Perfect Strangers
The first few episodes of Hulu's Nine Perfect Strangers are finally here, and given how episode three left off, it's safe to say we're in for a real doozy. With new episodes dropping every Wednesday on Hulu, we can't help but sit on the edge of our seats in anticipation as to what will happen to the guests at Masha's (Nicole Kidman) remote wellness retreat.
If you're craving more Nine Perfect Strangers content, you can always read the bestselling novel the series is based on, or book yourself a stay at the real-life Tranquillum House. But if you're looking for something more visually entertaining, we've rounded up a list of equally suspenseful thrillers centered around quirky characters, wellness, and diabolical storylines to get you through the coming weeks and beyond.
Behind Her Eyes
Louise has gotten herself into a very complicated love triangle, and she likes it. After beginning a steamy affair with her boss, Louise seeks out his wife, Adele, in hopes of becoming her closest friend. Enraptured in both their lives, Louise convinces herself she's what's best for both of them. However, the more she discovers about the couple, the more she fears it's too late to escape. Behind Her Eyes will satisfy your appetite for an addicting, nail-bitting thriller.
How to Get Away With Murder
As of now, it's a little unclear as to what Masha and her team have planned for their retreat guests, but if our hunch is correct, Annalise Keating from How to Get Away With Murder could definitely offer some dirty legal assistance. The show follows legal expert Annalise and her law students as they work to cover up some of the deadliest murder cases her firm has ever seen.
Based on a true-crime podcast, Dirty John follows Debra (played by Connie Britton) as her family's livelihood is put in grave danger when she falls head over heels for a con man named John Meehan. Both this show and Nine Perfect Strangers offer a thrilling take on the age-old question: How well do you truly know someone?
From a wellness retreat to a camping trip, The Society follows a group of high school students who return from a fun getaway to find all the adults in their town have vanished. They'll have to ban together to uncover what exactly happened on their trip, and devise a plan to get things back to normal.
The passengers of Montego Air Flight 828 all have one thing in common: they've been presumably dead for the last five years. Upon their arrival in NYC, they learn what's transpired since their flight's departure several years ago. Similar to the characters in Nine Perfect Strangers, these strangers will have to lean on each other for support.
In The Act, Gypsy Blanchard (Joey King) fights to break free of her destructive relationship with her overruling, coddling mother (Patricia Arquette). As her chance for escape nears, lines are crossed, secrets are exposed, and someone will end up dead.
Like Nine Perfect Strangers, HBO's The White Lotus takes place at a resort and centers around an interesting group of vacationers. However, their relaxing trip takes a horrific turn when one stranger leaves the island paradise in a body bag.
Big Little Lies
If binge watching a Nicole Kidman-led thriller is your version of a good show, then you'll devour Big Little Lies. Featuring a star-studded cast that includes, Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Lauren Dern, and Zoë Kravitz, the series follows a group of moms after a posh school function takes a wild turn and leaves one of their husbands dead. Fun fact: Big Little Lies is another series based on one of Liane Moriarty's bestselling novels!
Keeping with the theme of self-healing, Enlightened focuses on a high strung corporate businesswoman named Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern), who is newly reformed after returning from a wellness retreat. On her first day back, Amy is greeted with a demotion, which pushes her newly found zen to its limits. While this series isn't so much a thriller, it does harp on the same themes of self-reflection and rebirth found in Nine Perfect Strangers.
