Fans of thrillers may be interested in checking out the Netflix series Who is Erin Carter?

The show follows Erin, a substitute teacher and ex-pat, living and working in Barcelona while caring for her daughter too.

However, when a visit to the local supermarket takes a deadly turn, Erin reveals that she is so much more than an English teacher, taking on the store robbers and showing them a thing or two in the process.

It leads to suspicions about Erin, and her past, especially when one of the thugs she dispatches recognises her from somewhere else.

One of the villains that seem to be interested in Erin is Daniel Lang. Daniel has a connection to Erin, as his son is one of the kids that Erin tutors. However, it seems that the wealthy antagonist may also have a past that could involve the teacher.
