Netflix is all set to release Jamie Dornan's suspenseful series, "The Tourist", which promises to be a thrilling ride for audiences. The series tells the story of an amnesiac man who wakes up in an Australian hospital, battling to unravel the mystery of his identity and the events that led him there.

The BBC initially produced the series, which was a massive hit with viewers across the globe. "The Tourist" was an instant success, earning a second season of six episodes, scheduled to premiere on the BBC on January 1, 2024.

Netflix viewers will have to wait until the 1st of February (or use a VPN to access BBC iPlayer), as Netflix has acquired the exclusive streaming rights for regions beyond the UK. This also means that the series will be removed from other streaming platforms where it was previously available (HBO/Max, Stan and ZDF), leaving Netflix as the go-to platform for both seasons.

In addition to Jamie Dornan, "The Tourist" features a talented cast, including Danielle Macdonald, Shalom Brune-Franklin, and Greg Larsen. The show is crafted and scripted by Harry and Jack Williams, who introduced Dornan's character, "The Man," in the first season. "The Man" hails from Northern Ireland and is struggling with amnesia after a car crash in an Australian hospital. In Season 2, he returns to Ireland with Helen (Macdonald) as they delve deeper into his enigmatic past.

Overall, "The Tourist" is a must-watch for fans of suspenseful thrillers. With its availability on Netflix, it promises to reach a wider audience and captivate viewers across the globe.
