Viewers 'hooked' on incredible new true crime drama about 'harrowing' case

It's based on the real-life tragic murder of a teenager in Canada in the 1990s

Viewers have been ‘hooked’ on an incredible new true crime drama that follows the brutal murder of a teenage girl, with many praising the tender focus it has on the victim.

Back in 1997, 14-year-old Reena Virk went missing from Saanich on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, after being invited to a party near the Craigflower Bridge.

Her body was found eight days later, having washed up on the shores of the Gorge Inlet.

Virk’s tragic story has now been made into a new Hulu series starring Lily Gladstone, Vritika Gupta and Riley Keough, with the first two episodes released earlier this week.

It’s based on the book Under the Bridge: The True Story of the Murder of Reena Virk by acclaimed author Rebecca Godfrey, who received British Columbia's National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction in 2006 for her investigation into the murder. You can watch the trailer here:

The new series, Under the Bridge, is told through the eyes of Godfrey (played by Keough) and a local police officer (Gladstone), taking us into the ‘hidden world of the young girls accused of the murder’ to reveal ‘startling truths’ about the unlikely killer.

Viewers are already obsessed with the ‘harrowing’ story after watching the first two instalments of the eight-part mini-series – although some have admitted they’ll struggle to have to wait until next week for more.

One tweeted: “Under the Bridge has left me shattered. A harrowing true crime series that acts as a love letter to Reena Virk & her family.

"It gives the victim a voice. A thought-provoking & heartbreaking story of lost & broken people.

"Full of beautiful, powerful, even frightening performances.”

Someone else agreed: “Hulu's Under the Bridge is harrowing, heartbreaking and riveting. Riley Keough and Lily Gladstone are both excellent, and the young actors are thoroughly compelling.

"It's must- watch TV with a top '90s soundtrack."

I love a good murder mystery intertwined w/ tragedies and secrets of the investigating officers in a small ‘peaceful’ town. And get this, they got some bad a*s kids f**king shit UP. Yk what that meanssss.”

A fourth added: “The fact that the Under the Bridge episodes are being released weekly is driving me insane.

"I’m so hooked I want the rest NOW.”
