Nicole Kidman Teases “A Lot More Than” Hot Chocolate In Swiss Alps Set Season 2 Of Hulu’s ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’

If you thought season one of Hulu’s limited series Nine Perfect Strangers gave a new definition of locked up, there’s going to be plenty of cabin fever come season 2.

We caught up with the series star and EP Nicole Kidman last night on the red carpet for her AFI Life Achievement Award to ask how the next season is coming along.

“Swiss Alps And Crazy! Hold on tight!” exclaimed Kidman. She was talking about the series’ setting which switches up from the Tranquillum House retreat in the fictional town of Cabrillo, CA to the Swiss Alps. Kidman plays the wellness resort’s founder Masha Dmitrichenko who has it out for her guests by dispensing to them a psychoactive drug, namely Psilocybin. Masha is arrested, cradling her hallucinated late daughter in her arms. However, she appears to have beaten the rap as the Tranquillum House guests covered for her illegal actions during police interviews. We see Masha driving around in Ben Chandler’s (Melvin Gregg) yellow Lamborghini on the coastal highway, still hallucinating that her daughter is in the passenger seat.

So given the Swiss Alps backdrop, we can expect a lot of hot chocolate, right, in season 2.

Laughed Kidman, “And a lot more than that!”

The series is based on the Liane Moriarity (Big Little Lies) novel of the same name. Season 2 stars include Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) as Peter; Mark Strong (1917) as David, Lena Olin (One Life) as Helena, as well as Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek), Christine Baranski (The Gilded Age), Lucas Englander (Transatlantic), musician King Princess, Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus), Dolly de Leon (Triangle of Sadness), Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Undeclared War) and Aras Aydin.

Nine Perfect Strangers dropped in September 2021 and became Hulu’s most-watched Hulu original ever — drama, comedy, limited series or unscripted — on premiere day as well as after five days on the service per the streamer. The series comes from David E. Kelley, Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories, Kidman’s Blossom Films, and Fifth Season.
