PREMISE OF ‘NINE PERFECT STRANGERS’
‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ is based on nine people visiting a remote wellness retreat called Tranquillum House to seek relaxation and escape. While the nine eccentric characters expect Tranquillum to be a haven of peace, resort-like luxury and holiday vibes, it turns out to be quite the opposite. The place is run by a mysterious woman named Masha who pushes the characters to get out of their comfort zone and address their trauma. Masha is focused on finding healing for her guests while her own past begins to literally haunt her.
In brief, the show is about nine strangers getting unconventional and swanky therapy from a guide who is losing control with each passing day. It is a chaotic delight that will hook you from the very beginning. While ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ has received mixed reviews from critics, once you view the first episode, it is hard to care about any of that since you will not be able to stop watching, transfixed to the journey of the characters. The show is yet to release its final and eighth episode on September 22.
‘NINE PERFECT STRANGERS’ SEAMLESS CAST
Speaking of characters, while the show’s plot tends to go a bit off course at times, its character-building ensures that the series retains its coherence. ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ is blessed with a marvellous cast that carries the show on its shoulders when the writers don’t rise to the occasion.
To start with, Nicole Kidman as Masha is every person’s wellness fantasy come true. She is celestial and remarkable. The brilliant Melissa McCarthy plays the role of Francis, a writer whose personal and professional life is in turmoil. She is the biggest highlight of the show, alongside Regina Hall, who has also made fans go gaga over her acting.
Moving on, you have the aggression of Bobby Cannavale’s Tony, Luke Evans delivering one of his best performances and also the beautiful Samara Weaving who displays looks and emotions in equal parts. Furthermore, the Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon brings impeccable honesty to his character, with one of the scenes surely making him worthy of an Emmy nomination. ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ is a masterclass in nailing good casting and you cannot miss out on the perfect performances of its cast.
IS ‘NINE PERFECT STRANGERS’ SEASON 2 POSSIBLE?
Now it is time to address the elephant in the room: will ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ get a Season 2 renewal. If yes, what is its release date?
Here’s the thing. According to the show’s director Jonathan Levine, it all depends on you, the viewers of the show. If the show’s audiences find it worthy, the makers might think of returning for another season. ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ was created as a limited series with “a beginning, a middle and an end”. However, Levine remarks that there are more “storytelling opportunities” beyond season 1, given that people receive the show nicely.
The finale of ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ will grace us on September 22, 2021. After that, if the show’s ending is a hit amongst the viewers, Hulu will definitely consider making season 2 of ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’. Perhaps, season 2 might end up featuring a different set of strangers.
