The four-part series follows a woman called Jane [Gugu] who begins questioning her new surroundings in a mysterious house when she learns the cryptic fate of the previous tenant.

The official synopsis reads: ‘The Girl Before tells the story of Jane, who gets the chance to move into a beautiful, ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect (David Oyelowo).

‘T.’s just one catch: the occupants must abide by his list of exacting rules.
