The highly-anticipated thriller "Stay Close" will arrive on Netflix on New Year's Eve.

As reported earlier this year, many eagle-eyed locals spotted Cold Feet actor James Nesbitt in Morecambe during filming for the series, which is based on a Harlan Coben novel.

Stay Close follows three people who are keeping secrets from those close to them, with Nesbitt playing a detective investigating a disappearance that bears similarities to an unsolved missing persons case 17 years earlier. With their secrets returning to haunt them, how will this impact all of their futures?
