Beau Séjour can add Stephen King to its list of fans. The world renowned author shows nothing but praise for the series: "Brilliant and strangely touching", he writes on Twitter. "When Stephen King gives you such a compliment, that's amazing", according to director Nathalie Basteyns.

The deal between De Mensen and Netflix is clearly paying off. Thousands of fans all accross the world have expressed their love for the show, and now Stephen King has found his way to the raw whodunit about Kato Hoeven. 

Even more: turns out he's a fan. "Eccentric, brilliant, and strangely touching. Supernatural fare for those who don't ordinarily like it."

"Fantastic"

The creators are happy with the compliment: "I woke up this morning with a text message from Lynn Van Royen (Kato in the series) with a lot of "oh my gods" and exclamation marks. With a picture of the tweet. Of course that's fantastic news. I'm a big fan of Stephen King and when someone like that gives you a compliment, that's just amazing', director Nathalie Basteyns says.
