We have our first look at the new Prime Video series Lazarus, the latest small-screen adaptation of a Harlan Coben mystery novel.

The Hunger Games and Daisy Jones & the Six star Sam Claflin was photographed filming in Manchester, England, as reported by Digital Spy, looking pensive in one shot and angry in another, pointing at a teenager wearing a school uniform. 

Per Prime Video's official synopsis, "Lazarus follows a man who returns home after his father's suicide and begins to have disturbing experiences that can't be explained. He quickly becomes entangled in a series of cold-case murders as he grapples with the mystery of his father's death and his sister's murder 25 years ago."

Claflin plays Laz, a forensic psychologist, while Bill Nighy is his late father, Dr. Lazarus – he was also a psychologist and a beloved figure within the community. Killing Eve's Alexandra Roach plays Laz's other sister Jenna. 

The last adaptation of one of Coben's novels took the small screen by storm: Fool Me Once, released on Netflix this past January, quickly rocketed up the streamer's charts and is now one of the platform's most-watched English-language TV shows ever, overtaking The Witcher season 1. The limited series stars Michelle Keegan as Maya, a veteran and widow whose world is turned upside down when she sees her murdered husband (Richard Armitage) enter her home as an intruder on her nanny cam.
