Daisy Jones & The Six and Little Fires Everywhere both come to mind as excellent book-to-screen adaptations of late. But they share another thing in common: both were featured in Reese Witherspoon’s book club. And the adaptations aren’t stopping there as another of Reese’s picks, The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave, makes its television debut this April.

So, what is this new adaptation we’re all no doubt going to obsess over?

The story, according to the synopsis, is as follows;

The Last Thing He Told Me follows Hannah, a woman who must forge a relationship with her 16-year-old stepdaughter Bailey in order to find the truth about why her husband has mysteriously disappeared.

But why did her husband disappear? See, I’m already invested.

As you’d expect, the cast of such a high-profile book adaptation is equally high-profile.

Our favourite Jennifer Garner is in the lead as Hannah, with her stepdaughter Bailey being played by Aussie Angourie Rice (Mare of Easttown). Hannah’s missing husband is played by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and comedy queen Aisha Tyler plays Jules.

The series is created and adapted by Laura Dave and co-creator Josh Singer. Garner also serves as executive producer alongside Hello Sunshine’s Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.
