Stay Close, featuring a star-studded cast, dropped last week on Netflix, and writer Harlan Coben – who also wrote the novel that the series is adapted from – has opened up about what's next for him.

Several of his novels have already been adapted for television, some coming under his five-year deal with streaming giant Netflix.

As well as Stay Close, he has also adapted The Stranger, The Woods, The Innocent and Gone for Good for Netflix, but he admitted to Digital Spy and other media that there is more to come.

"This will be the sixth show that I've made with [Netflix], and a seventh is coming sometime next year, we've just finished filming in Poland," he teased.

"I've been able to work in four or five different languages. I have plans for at least two others, which has been really fun to be able to do the international stuff. They've [Netflix] been great collaborators."

Stay Close star Cush Jumbo plays Megan, a mum of three who previously worked as a pole dancer under the name of Cassie at Vipers nightclub, a venue at the centre of a murder investigation.

Jumbo recently opened up about learning pole dancing and how it wasn't that glamourous.

"It's really hard!" she said of her scenes with the pole. "I said to Harlan that I wanted to kind of get it right and I hadn't intended to just have my head superimposed on a really good body double. Maybe that might have been better but I actually haven't seen the dancing yet, so I don't know how it came out!

"But it was actually really fun learning – I got to learn at two different schools over three months. Some of it's pole dancing, some of it's pole fitness. It's really hard, my legs were completely battered, it was not glamorous.

"I did a lot of falling down the pole before I started to look anywhere near good. But I love learning new skills, so I actually came out of it really excited about the pole."

Stay Close is streaming on Netflix now.
