Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52
The legal docu-series first aired on US cable channel A&E Network for five seasons before it was rebooted for the streaming service in 2017. However, it wasn't available for UK Netflix viewers until 15th September. Yes, a whole two years from the US release.
The show documents the investigation of many long-unsolved murders using modern forensic science advances, and criminal psychology, in addition to recent breakthroughs in the cases involving previously silent witnesses.
Acclaimed actor Danny Glover narrates the first half of the gripping 10-part series while Bill Kurtis reprised his role for the second half.
The first episode titled 'Little Lost Girl' follows the case of a young girl named Shauna Howe who is kidnapped and killed on her way home from a costume party.
If you were a fan of Netflix's The Staircase, about a novelist accused of murdering his wife, or The Keeper, which follows the story murdered nun in 1960s Baltimore, then we think you're going to love this.
Another crime series that should be on your radar is The Real Prime Suspect, which airs on CBS Reality (Sky channel 146).
The series is lead by retired detective Jackie Bolton who uses her unparalleled list of contacts to get access to ten of Britain's most infamous murder cases.
Jackie, the inspiration behind multi-award winning drama Prime Suspect character DCI Jane Tennison, played by Helen Mirren, rings in help from former colleagues to revisit investigations with police, detectives, and other professionals who were there at the time of the cases.
Episode six of the 10-part series sees Jackie travel to Massachusetts, USA, to investigate the case of Louise Woodward, the 19-year-old British au pair who was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of an eight-month old baby while he was in her care.
Cold Case Files is available to watch on Netflix now.
