Is Nine Perfect Strangers based on a true story?

NINE Perfect Strangers takes nine wealthy stressed people into a remote boutique resort as they experience major life-changing events.

Run by a mysterious woman, Masha, the exclusive venue only opens its door to a select few, and in the span of ten days, promises to make them lighter, happier and all-new versions of themselves.

Is Nine Perfect Strangers based on a true story?

The Hulu series centers around the stories of nine eccentric characters that begin their respective journeys at the Tranquillum House retreat.

Early in the series, each character’s own troubles become apparent but what remains hidden is why they’ve been chosen to attend Tranquillum House together and what exactly Masha’s plans for each of her guests might be.

However, despite the thrilling series, Nine Perfect Strangers is not based on a true story.

Instead, the miniseries is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty.

Nine Perfect Strangers is a close adaptation of its sourcebook, retaining almost all the same characters – including their names – and many of the details of the retreat it is set in.

However, despite the series’ premise coming from Moriarty’s book, some cast members didn’t shy away from putting their own real-world experience to use.

“Everyone had their own personal experience with this type of thing,” Levine told Town and Country Magazine.

“When your sample group is movie stars, people have been exposed to these things more often than not. We all kind of had a common language that we were speaking.”

He called out Regina Hall, who plays Carmel on the series, as being particularly well versed.

“Regina had so many books for me read. She’d done stuff like this a lot, and certainly, other people brought their own anecdotes to the table on that front,” the author added.
