This is the fourth Netflix series based on the work of Harlan Coben, following Safe, The Stranger and Stay Close.

Speaking about the project, Coben said: “Fool Me Once is a pulse-pounder – a shocking story of how secrets and deceit have the power to bring people together while simultaneously tearing them apart.

“I can’t wait to see how this dream cast brings these characters to life.”
