Killer In My Village is back for a third series, and it's not going to be one to miss.
Whether you've watched the first two instalments or not, the Sky Crime documentary series is certainly going to be worth a binge-watch, focusing on how local communities respond when rocked by horrific murders.
The previous two seasons have honed in on everything from execution murders on complete strangers to crimes of passion.
And while there's no denying it's a heavy and disturbing watch - it's also truly fascinating to see how small communities rally together, and help each other through the painful ordeals.
Here's a snippet from season two:
We don't yet know the specific crime cases that will be examined in the upcoming series, but based on the last two, they're going to be gut wrenching.
One episode in the first series focused on the murder of taxi driver Stuart Ludlam, who was discovered shot dead in the back of his cab at Cromford Station in September 2009.
Stuart was a dad of three, and he was just 43 years old when he died.
In June 2010, gun fanatic Colin Cheetham, 61, from Ripley, was found guilty of the random shooting, and it emerged that he had "meticulously planned" the attack, which left Stuart dead.
The series also looked at the shocking killing of 37-year-old Dawn Walker, who was murdered and later buried by her partner, Kevin Nunn, 53, of Woolpit, Suffolk.
In this episode, we learnt how Kevin and Dawn had argued ahead of her death, and he killed her in a jealous rage as she called time on their relationship.
Their cases are just two harrowing examples of small village crimes that had an earth shattering impact.
Other cases put under the microscope include that of Bill Williamson - an 82-year-old whose body was found in this partner's garden in Godalming, Surrey in 2010 - and Jane Longhurst - a British special needs teacher and musician who was murdered by Graham Coutts, her best friend's partner, in 2003.
The second season also looks at Natalie Jarvis, a 24-year-old who was stabbed to death by her boyfriend in October 2010; Alan Greaves, who was attacked on his way to midnight mass in Sheffield in 2012 and Mabel Leyshon, 90, who was brutally stabbed to death at her home in Anglesey back in 2001 by a vampire-obsessed teen.
We told you this was dark one...
Killer In My Village does not yet have an official release date, but is coming to Sky and NOWTV soon!
