Nine Perfect Strangers will come back for a second season, with Nicole Kidman returning to the series, Deadline reports. New to the cast this season are Murray Bartlett (The Last of Us, The White Lotus) and screen icon Liv Ullmann (Persona, Cries and Whispers).

The Hulu series, which aired its first season in 2021, is based on the 2016 novel by Liane Moriarty. The book follows nine people who congregate at a health resort, only to find that the experience isn’t what they expected. A critic for Kirkus wrote of the novel, “Fun to read, as always with Moriarty’s books, but try not to think about it or it will stop making sense.”

The first season of the adaptation starred Kidman alongside Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon and Luke Evans. It was created by veteran producer David E. Kelley (The Practice, Big Little Lies) and John-Henry Butterworth (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny), with Jonathan Levine (Long Shot) directing.

The second season will see Kidman returning as the health resort’s director, Masha Dmitrichenko. In addition to Bartlett an Ullmann, new cast members include Maisie Richardson-Sellers (The Originals) and Dolly de Leon (Verdict). Kidman will also return as an executive producer.

Richardson-Sellers announced news of her casting in the series on Instagram, writing, “S1 of this show blew my mind on so many levels. Joining this team, cast and universe is a dream come true. Mysterious magical haunting thrills coming your way soon.”
