All the Harlan Coben book adaptations on Netflix and the ones on the way



In 2018, American author Harlan Coben signed a five-year deal with Netflix, per Deadline, in which 14 of his 33 novels (which, by the way, have sold over 75 million copies, per his website) will turn into individual series on the streaming service, with him serving as producer.

This multi-million dollar deal is big news for Coben buffs, who already love his mystery novels with their twisty-turny plots mostly set in middle-class suburbia. It’s also good news for newcomers, who are binge-watching the mystery series — and maybe picking up one of his novels, which he publishes at a rate of one a year.

The Netflix book adaptations have been made internationally, as well as in the U.S.: “The Woods” was made in Poland, “The Innocents” in Spain, and “Gone for Good” in France.

There are more Coben adaptations on the way on other platforms, like a YA thriller version of “Shelter” on Prime Video. Read on for a list of the seven shows already released on Netflix, in order, and the ones yet to come.

‘Hold Tight’ (2022)

This series, filmed in Polish, is the latest Coben series to come to Netflix. This story follows a man who goes missing after his friend dies — and in the aftermath of his disappearance, a slew of secrets and lies about his family gets exposed. Hold tight, indeed.

“Hold Tight” also has a reward for people who watched “The Woods,” another Polish adaptation of a Coben novel, bringing back lead Pawel Kopinski (Grzegorz Damiecki) to tie up loose strings. ‘Stay Close’ (2021)

“Stay Close,” filmed in the U.K., features three protagonists who all have concealed secrets. Expect compelling storylines, including a forbidden romance, unsolved murders (duh), medical scares and a finale that will put you on the very edge of your seat. The cast includes Cush Jumbo, Richard Armitage, Daniel Francis, Jo Joyner and Eddie Izzard.

‘Gone for Good’ (2021)

Gird your loins: Here’s another Harlan Coben story in which (shocker!) someone goes missing. This time, it’s the main character’s girlfriend. Guillaume Lucchesi (Finnegan Oldfield) has suffered loss after loss: His first love, his brother, and his mother. When his girlfriend goes missing after his mom’s funeral, Finnegan decides he can’t lose another perosn and goes out to find her. This five-part French-language miniseries also includes themes of family betrayal and, of course, secret-keeping. The drama!

‘The Innocent’ (2021)

"The Innocent" stars Mario Casas as Mateo.

As you could have perhaps figured by now, the main character of this show, Mateo, has some secrets in his pocket. This Spanish series focuses on Mateo, who gets released from an eight-year stint in prison after killing a man in a bar fight. With lots of seemingly unrelated (but of course, are actually very related) plot lines, this show will throw you for the best kind of loop.

‘The Woods’ (2020)

“The Woods” flashes between timelines: a 1994 summer camp in the woods and a 2019 Warsaw. This Polish show follows a lawyer who is haunted by the death of two children he was supervising at the aforementioned summer camp in ’94. This perplexing series is left on a cliff-hanger — so viewers who like a resolved plot, be warned: You’re going to have to wait for the 2022 series “Hold Tight” to get it.

‘The Stranger’ (2020)

Richard Armitage, who later appeared in “Stay Close,” plays a British suburban dad who is approached by a woman who reveals a life-altering secret to him about his wife. Oh, and one of his son’s classmates is found dead in the woods. Chaos ensues.

‘Safe’ (2018)

"Safe" stars Michael C. Hall of "Dexter."

Michael C. Hall (of “Dexter” fame) stars in this England-set series — and his character is on a frantic search for his 16-year-old daughter Jenny, almost a year after his wife died of cancer. Think “Taken,” but with a slew of Harlan Coben-style chaotic web of lies thrown into the mix.

Upcoming Harlan Coben shows

So far, “Run Away” was confirmed to be turned into a Netflix series, and and “Six Years“ will be a movie.

As for the remaining options? There’s slew of other possible novels that could be converted to shows, including, but not limited, to:

  • “Play Dead”
  • “Miracle Cure”
  • “Tell No One”
  • “No Second Chance”
  • “Just One Look”
  • ‘Caught”
  • “Missing You”
  • “Fool Me Once”
  • “Don’t Let Go”
  • “The Boy from the Woods”
  • “Win”

‘The Voice’ Sneak Peek: Niall Horan Says He’s Not Coming Back After Tough Battle Round Decision



The Battle Rounds are always tough for The Voice coaches, but on Monday, Niall Horan might be ready to throw in the towel!

The rookie coach dooms himself in a new sneak peek at a Team Niall Battle between Michael B. and Ryley Tate Wilson, who take the stage with a stunning rendition of Giveon’s “Heartbreak Anniversary” that blows all four coaches away.

“That was one of the best performances we’ve seen in the Battle Rounds,” Chance the Rapper praises. 

“Michael, I don’t know how you weren’t a four-chair turn,” Kelly Clarkson marvels, to which Blake Shelton replies, “I don’t think I was here that day.”

However, when it comes to their coach, who has to pick a winner and loser of the Battle — or will he use his Playoff Pass? — Niall is hurting.

“If they ask me to come back, I’m not coming back,” he laments. “Because I cannot tell you how hard this is.”

Calling the pair’s performance “off the charts,” Niall praised the pair for making the song their own, before bemoaning the fact that he has the toughest decision to make.

Watch the full Battle below and tune in on Monday to see who wins!

ET spoke with the season 23 coaches ahead of the premiere, who all shared how excited they were to be on the show for The Cowboy’s last go-round.

“I texted him,” Kelly shared. “If he was gonna do a last season, I wanted to make sure I was there.”

However, the talk show host insisted that she won’t be letting nostalgia affect her competitive nature.

“If [Blake] wins, I am very happy for him, because that is super cool to win on the last season and he’s literally the show, from its conception,” she conceded. “But, like, I’m not, like, rooting for him to win. I’ll be happy for him if he does, but I’m obviously trying to win myself.”

As for the show’s new coaches, Niall and Chance said they were ready to put in the work against the Team Blake dynasty.

“It’s been awesome,” Chance said of joining the show. “Kelly’s very, very sweet, very nice to me. And Blake is… here.”

The Voice airs Mondays at 8 p.m. PT/ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. PT/ET on NBC.
