Hot off the heels of Alice Hunter's 2021 smash hit best-selling novel of the same name comes the inevitable television adaptation that promises to keep viewers guessing well into the final episode.

The book's blurb begins: "Beth and Tom are the envy of their neighbourhood — they have the perfect marriage, the perfect house, the perfect family." So you just know that things aren't going to stay that way for very long.

And highly-regarded local GP Tom (Jack Farthing) is soon arrested for a murder that he says he didn't commit. Ever the trusting wife, Beth (Annabel Scholey) instinctively backs her man. But as the police carry out their investigation and suspicion grows in the community, she's forced to face the fact that she doesn't know her spouse quite as well as she thought and is left to untangle his web of lies.

Could the man she loves possibly be capable of murder? And does Beth really dare risk it all to find out?

Here's everything you need to know to watch The Serial Killer's Wife online. Scroll down for the trailer, cast list and the ways to stream it of you're travelling abroad.

How to watch The Serial Killer's Wife online anywhere on Earth

The Serial Killer's Wife isn't being shown worldwide, but you needn't miss out if you're traveling abroad when it's on and still want to watch on the normal streaming service you would at home.

You can watch it with a VPN, which will help you get around any geo-restrictions that block you from watching when overseas. We'll show you how to do that below. Our favorite VPN service right now is ExpressVPN, but you'll find others in our best VPN services list.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 100+ countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple:

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.S. and want to view Paramount Plus UK, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Paramount Plus and watch The Serial Killer's Wife as if you were in the U.K..

Unusually for a Paramount Plus original, The Serial Killer's Wife isn't getting a release in other territories outside the U.K., at least not immediately.

So if you're a U.K. Paramount Plus subscriber currently travelling to any of those countries that still wishes to watch the new series, then you'll need to access it using a VPN as explained above.
