In August 2018, Harlan Coben signed a five-year deal with Netflix. Under the deal, Coben would have 14 of his novels created as Netflix series, with him serving as producer on all of them. Stay Close follows other Coben-created Netflix originals Safe (2018), The Stranger, The Woods (both 2020) and The Innocent.
It's such a pleasure to be setting off on another thrill-ride with Harlan [Coben], Danny [Brocklehurst] and Nicola [Shindler], as we dive into a brand new story about people who keep shocking secrets from their families and closest friends. We're excited to have the opportunity again to hook Netflix viewers around the world with a compelling mystery that will keep people up late into the night.
