Two more days! And in anticipation Collider has given us a rundown of the cast and characters of Nine Perfect Strangers.

The limited series Nine Perfect Strangers follows, as the name implies, nine strangers from all walks of life with varying degrees of stress, who are promised a life-changing experience at a far away health spa called Tranquillum House run by the mysterious Masha, played by Nicole Kidman. Sure, their lives will change, but, perhaps not in the exact way they intended. “You want to get well? You want to heal? Surrender yourself to me,” an eerie Masha says to her guests in the trailer. She further promises that, “We are on the precipice of something great.”

An adaptation of the popular novel of the same name by author Liane Moriarty, Nine Perfect Strangers assembled a mega-talented cast, and has plenty of unique characters to explore.

Let’s break down who plays who in the latest novel adaptation of Moriarty’s work.

Melissa McCarthy as Frances

Actress Melissa McCarthy plays Frances, a romance novelist who seeks out the wellness center as a reprieve from her struggling career. Moriarty, when asked about the novel, said she feels “gratified” when people respond positively to Frances, as the character is the closest one to herself. McCarthy detailed her experiences filming the series in Australia on The Tonight Show last year, and gushed about how wonderful and down-to-earth the fellow actors were. McCarthy admitted that she was a bit intimidated meeting Nicole Kidman for the first time, but was quickly relieved at how real and normal the actress was. “She’s weird! She’s like a wonderful weirdo,” she told Jimmy Fallon, adding that Michael Shannon is, “One of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met.” McCarthy also serves as an executive producer on the series.

McCarthy is an Oscar-nominated actress for her performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me? and Bridesmaids. She can be seen in upcoming projects such as The Starling with Timothy Olyphant, Thor: Love and Thunder, The Little Mermaid, and the Netflix series, God’s Favorite Idiot, with husband Ben Falcone and actress Leslie Bibb.
