Netflix fans call for more of 'must watch' true crime documentary after binging first series

Netflix fans call for more of 'must watch' true crime documentary after binging first series

From the mind of TV icon Dick Wolf comes a new true crime series for Netflix, and there's more on the way.

Netflix subscribers are raving about a ‘must-watch’ series created by the ‘master’ of crime, Richard ‘Dick’ Wolf.

American writer and producer Dick, 77, is best known for creating the Law & Order, Chicago and FBI franchises.

His work on the trio has earned the New Yorker a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as numerous Emmy, PGA and Writers Guild of America awards nominations.

A new project from the mind of Dick Wolf has landed on Netflix.

As well as creating iconic episodic franchises, Dick is responsible for a new Netflix series that has viewers hooked.

His new five-episode docuseries delves into shocking crimes that have rocked the city of New York over the last three decades.

These include the 1997 murder of Michael Morrow, the brutal 1996 stabbing of Howard Pilmar and the 2001 Carnegie Deli killings, which involved Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Stahl.

If your interest is piqued, then Wolf’s new show is titled Homicide: New York and the trailer is available to watch below:

Homicide: New York was released on Netflix on March 20, and sees detectives and prosecutors revisiting the ‘most challenging’ and notorious crime cases they’ve worked on.

Speaking to the streaming giant, the show’s executive producer Adam Kassen said: “In New York, homicide detectives are divided between north and south Manhattan.

“The NYPD is massive. You can work in that department and not actually know somebody for years.

“All the folks on the show know each other — they either worked together loosely or were connected somehow and that was what we started with, a group of folks that were connected, that cared about their cases.”

Elsewhere, executive producer Jane Lipsitz said that while true crime buffs can get information on the five cases via Wikipedia, you miss out on the ‘human side of the story’.

Homicide: New York features five true crime cases.

“You don’t have the context of the victim’s families and friends,” she explained.

“That obviously is a huge part of it, and really creates some emotional connection for the audience.”

The docuseries features five instalments, entitled: ‘Carnegie Deli Massacre’, ‘Central Park Slaying’, ‘Vanished on Wall Street’, ‘Midtown Slasher’ and ‘East Harlem Serial Killer’.

Following the season premiere earlier this month, fans have been taking to social media to have their say - with many being impressed with the project.

One user of X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote: ”This New York Homicide series is exactly my type of series.”

A second said: “Homicide: New York... solving crimes in a city with 8 million stories will always have my attention. @netflix.”

Fans are raving about the true crime offering on social media.

"Once I saw that ‘Homicide New York’ on Netflix was Executive Produced by Dick Wolf, it was a must watch for me,” claimed another subscriber.

A fourth viewer implored: “I wish ‘Homicide: New York’ on Netflix had more than just 4 eps.”

“If you are into crime documentaries like I am you need to watch New York Homicide on Netflix,” said another. “Dick Wolf is the master of crime. Let me know what you think. It was just released."

If you’ve already sunk your teeth into Homicide: New York then you’ll be excited to hear that the next instalment of Wolf’s new project is coming soon.

Homicide: Los Angeles is expected to hit the platform later this year and is expected to follow the same format as its predecessor.

You can stream all episodes of Homicide: New York on Netflix now.
