Based on the novel of the same name from author Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies), Nine Perfect Strangers follows a group of city-dwellers who go on a 10-day retreat to a health and wellness resort that promises healing and transformation – however, everything isn't what it seems to be.

Director of the picturesque beauty resort is Masha (Nicole Kidman), an ominous presence whose unorthodox methods of achieving improved mental and physical health become increasingly questionable.

In order to watch Nine Perfect Strangers you will need an Amazon Prime account which costs £7.99 a month or £79 for a full year.

Subscribing to Amazon Prime will give you instant access to a wide range of TV shows and movies with Prime Video, including The Handmaid's Tale, The Boys, This Is Us, Jack Ryan and many more.

Is Nine Perfect Strangers Based on a Book? Is Nine Perfect Strangers Based on a True Story?

No, Nine Perfect Strangers isn’t based on real life. But it is based on a book. Written by Big Little Lies‘ Liane Moriarty, the novel was a New York Times Bestseller even though it received mixed reviews.

What Time Does Nine Perfect Strangers Premiere?

If you love Hulu originals you likely already know the answer to this one. New episodes of Hulu shows are typically added at 12:01 a.m. ET. That means the second it becomes August 18, you should be good to stream new episodes. Don’t see Nicole Kidman right away? Don’t panic. If you refresh your browser or app the episodes should appear.

How Many Episodes Are in Nine Perfect Strangers?

Altogether there will be eight episodes in this miniseries. Since this is a limited series, that’s all we can expect from Nine Perfect Strangers for now. But there’s always a chance this miniseries will go the anthology route. After all that’s what happened to Liane Moriarty’s other adaptation, Big Little Lies. Here’s your guide to the schedule:

Episode 1, “Random Acts of Mayhem”: Wednesday, August 18

Episode 2, “The Critical Path”: Wednesday, August 18

Episode 3, “Earth Day”: Wednesday, August 18

Episode 4, “Brave New World”: Wednesday, August 25

Nine Perfect Strangers trailer

The Nine Perfect Strangers trailer begins with flashes of the titular people who are "in need of some fixing," as Melissa McCarthy puts it. They are welcomed to Tranquillum House by an extremely pale, spooky-looking Nicole Kidman. As the group members arrive, their inner struggles begin to surface. "Some doors are meant to stay closed," Bobby Cannavale warns.
