Gone For Good: The next Netflix x Harlan Coben collaboration we're dying to see
Netflix are turning Harlan Coben’s best-selling thriller Gone For Good into a series.
The five-part thriller is another collaboration between Coben and the streaming service, following in the footsteps of the Polish series The Woods, the UK series The Stranger and the upcoming Spanish show El Inocente.
It will star Finnegan Oldfield, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Guillaume Gouix, Garance Marillier. Juan Carlos Medina will direct, with Coben serving as the series’ executive producer.
Guillaume Lucchesi, in his thirties, thought he had drawn a line under the terrible tragedy which saw the two people he loved the most die: Sonia, his first love, and Fred, his brother.
And then ten years later, Judith — whose love has made his life worth living again — suddenly disappears during his mother’s funeral.
To find her, Guillaume will have to face all the truths that were hidden from him by his family and friends, as well as those that he’d long decided to ignore. For better, but mostly for worse.
Coben said it was a “particularly thrill” to be making Gone For Good in France, as he spoke about his partnership with Netflix.
“Netflix has been a wonderful partner in adapting my novels in a variety of countries - and it's a particular thrill to be making Gone For Good in France. I'm honoured to be working with this incredibly talented French cast and crew,” he said.
“We are so excited that Harlan Coben and Calt Studio are bringing this gripping story to France. Gone for Good has all the ingredients of his great thrillers that have consistently sparked joy with our members,” Damien Couvreur, head of original french series at Netflix, added.
