Netflix Crime Shows: Safe

1 season 

Created by Harlan Coben 

Starring Michael C. Hall, Amanda Abbington, Marc Warren, Audrey Fleurot, Hannah Arterton, Nigel Lindsay, Laila Rouass, Emmett J. Scanlan, Amy James-Kelly, Amy-Leigh Hickman, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, Louis Greatorex, and Lily Honeywell

Safe is based on the novel of the same name by Harlan Coben. It’s just one of many Coben-based series available to stream on Netflix, and this one is excellent.

The Netflix original series tells the story of Tom Delaney, a father of two girls. Their family is trying to move on after the death of their mother and Tom’s wife a year before the series starts. When one of the girls goes missing, Tom tries to find her and uncovers a bunch of secrets.

Safe is one of the best mystery shows on Netflix. Michael C. Hall is outstanding in the series, and if you’re a fan of Dexter or any other works from Coben, this show is a must-watch on Netflix.

Unfortunately, like many Coben dramas, there is only one season available, and there will be only one season of this series. Don’t worry, though, because more shows based on Coben’s books are coming to Netflix soon.
