The Tourist is a new action-packed thriller that's set to kick off 2022 with a bang. This six-part drama follows "The Man" (Jamie Dornan), a nameless British man who finds himself being run off the road by a huge truck in the Australian Outback.

After this chase, he wakes up later in hospital without any clue of who he is. On top of his amnesia, he's also got to grapple with some people from his past coming back to haunt him as he races to find out the truth about who he once was (and who he is now).

Dornan said The Tourist has "some of the most exciting scripts I've ever read", and it's sure to be an explosive series that you do not want to miss.
