Ashley Walters (Top Boy, Bulletproof), James Nesbitt (Stay Close, Bloodlands) and Matt Jay-Willis (Wolves of War, Love is Blind) are the latest additions to Netflix‘s adaptation of Harlan Coben’s Missing You.

They join the likes of Rosalind Eleazar, Jessica Plummer, Richard Armitage, Lenny Henry, Steve Pemberton, and Mary Malone in the limited thriller series.

Missing You is one of its two upcoming Coben novel adaptations following the success of his latest Netflix hit series, Fool Me Once, which starred Michelle Keegan and premiered globally on Jan. 1.

The five-episode program is about Detective Kat Donovan (Eleazar) whose fiancé Josh (Walters) disappeared 11 years ago, and she’s never heard from him since. “Now, swiping profiles on a dating app, she suddenly sees his face and her world explodes all over again,” according to a plot description. “Josh’s reappearance will force her to dive back into the mystery surrounding her father’s murder and uncover long-buried secrets from her past.”

Missing You will relocate the story from the U.S. to the U.K. as filming now starts in Manchester and the north west of England.

Earlier in the year, the streamer had said that it would make limited series based on the author’s novels Missing You and Run Away, produced by Quay Street Productions. Coben serves as executive producer on the projects through his company Final Twist Productions.
