There are many reasons people are saying this. For one, its source material is written by Liane Moriarty, who authored Big Little Lies. The show also stars Nicole Kidman, who played Celeste in Big Little Lies to immense critical acclaim and an Emmy Award.
Also, the show itself has Big Little Lies DNA: high-stakes melodrama, twists and turns, an A-list cast, and a gripping mystery that’ll keep you hooked from episode to episode. The first trailer just dropped, and it’s good. Check it out for yourself, below.

“Nine Perfect Strangers takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this 10-day retreat is the resort’s director Masha (Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine ‘perfect’ strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.”
