A Unabomber True Crime Series Is Coming to Netflix
Unabomber - In His Own Words, will look at Kacynski's 17 years of terror attacks that killed three people and injured 23 from 1978 to 1995.
He was dubbed 'Unabomber' by the press, after mailing bombs to university, airlines and anyone else he saw pushing technology forward.
And whilst back in 2017 we saw Manhunt: Unabomber, a scripted drama series on the streaming platform about him, we are now are set to see the real Kacynski, especially as the show will air exclusive interviews with his brother David.
David was the person who eventually realised his brother might be the long-hunted Unabomber, turning him in to police.
From his childhood, to his years at Harvard University and even the controversial mind control experiment he underwent at the hands of a psychologist at university.
It will raise questions as to what drove the intelligent mathematician to commit his heinous crimes and we will even hear interview audio with Kacynski conducted from jail.
The show sounds set to be a gripping one to watch and a real insight into the life of the extremist who was the target of the FBI's reported longest and most expensive manhunt.

The investigation finally saw him arrested in 1996, not long after he forced newspapers to publish his manifesto 'Industrial Society and Its Future,' vowing to stop his attacks if they did so.
He was sentenced to eight life sentences and will never be up for parole. He is currently residing in supermax prison ADK Florence in Colorado.
So mark your diaries, for yet another fascinating true crime to binge.
UK viewers though, you'll have to wait, as it is not yet confirmed whether this will be available worldwide.
Netflix is really knocking it out of the park lately when it comes to true crime though, so there are plenty of other options to pique your interest.
So true crime aficionados among us, get these all on your watch list pronto.
