At its core, Nine Perfect Strangers seems to be about grief and how far people will go to rid themselves of it. Each of the characters in the Hulu series comes to Tranquillum House with a specific “crisis” they’re looking to leave behind. Some are upfront about it, revealing marital problems and professional setbacks early on. Others allow their problems to unravel as the episodes continue, diving into more serious subject matter like death and addiction.

Masha vows to help them all become better versions of themselves, using suffering to shed their grief. Of course, that’s an ambitious promise to make — especially with a cast of characters who can’t seem to get along.

Whether they’ll come together to heal or continue unleashing their trauma on one another remains to be seen. The show has multiple episodes left to answer that question — and to immerse viewers in their drama in the meantime.

How many episodes of ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ are there?

In total, Nine Perfect Strangers comprises eight episodes, three of which are already streaming on Hulu. The remainder will drop weekly on the platform from mid-August to the end of September.
