  • "The Tourist," starring Jamie Dornan, is now available on Netflix in the United States.

  • The second season of the show will premiere on Netflix on February 29.

  • Here's the show's main cast and who they play.

"The Tourist" is an Australian-set thriller series starring Jamie Dornan — and as of this month, it's available on Netflix in the United States.

Dornan plays a man who, after a road accident, wakes up with amnesia in Australia. Without knowledge of his identity, he has to figure out who he is, why he's there, and how he ended up in the hospital. He's joined by Probationary Constable Helen Chambers (Danielle Macdonald), who continues to investigate even as things become more dangerous.

The show premiered in 2022 on BBC One, Australian streaming service Stan, and Max in the United States. Netflix picked up the show after Max dropped it, and the second season is set to hit the platform on February 29 (season two already premiered on BBC One and Stan in January).

Here's the main cast of "The Tourist" and who they play.
