Harlan Coben and the team behind Netflix hit Fool Me Once have now partnered with Prime Video for psychological mystery thriller Lazarus.

Lazarus follows a man who returns home after his father’s suicide and begins to have disturbing experiences that can’t be explained. He quickly becomes entangled in a series of cold-case murders as he grapples with the mystery of his father’s death and his sister’s murder 25 years ago.

Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy and Alexandra Roach

Sam Claflin (Daisy Jones & The Six) heads the cast as Laz, a well-respected forensic psychologist who has spent his whole life running from the pain of his past. It is only now when he returns home that he is forced to finally face up to it.

Bill Nighy (Living) plays Doctor Lazarus (Dr L). Psychologist and father to Laz, Jenna and Sutton and a beloved figure within his community, he shares his son’s charm, dry humour, and charisma. In death, he wants his son to understand that they are more similar than Laz thinks.

Meanwhile, Alexandra Roach (Killing Eve) is Jenna Lazarus. Since her sister’s murder Jenna has buried herself in a world of spiritual practice but now when her brother returns home and starts experiencing unexplained phenomena, she is forced to confront secrets from her own past.

The limited series is based on an original story idea from writers Coben and Danny Brocklehurst (Fool Me Once, Stay Close). They are both executive producers alongside Nicola Shindler (Nolly, It’s A Sin) and Richard Fee (Fool Me Once, The Stranger) for Quay Street Productions.

Wayne Che Yip (Rings of Power, Utopia) will be directing episodes one and two and will also be an executive producer. Matt Strevens (Doctor Who, Capital) will produce.

The series is produced by Quay Street Productions and Amazon MGM Studios in association with Final Twist Productions. It will stream exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
