Netflix has released the first trailer for its new eight-part thriller The Stranger, starring Richard Armitage and Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Anthony Head.

Based on the novel by Harlan Coben, The Stranger stars Armitage as family man Adam Price, whose ideal life crumbles when a chance encounter with a mysterious woman in a diner entangles him in a conspiracy.

The trailer shows Adam sitting alone at a bar before he's confronted by a stranger (Ant-Man and the Wasp's Hannah John-Kamen) who tells him that his wife faked her pregnancy.

The revelation is only the beginning of Adam's troubles as he gets drawn into a world of intrigue and danger.

The miniseries also stars Downton Abbey's Siobhan Finneran as DS Johanna Griffin who will find her pragmatic approach to police work compromised when her investigation into the matter becomes deeply personal.
