The three-part series covers the sinister case of Lori Vallow, a seemingly devoted mum of three who was charged in 2021 with first-degree murder of her two youngest children.
Watch the trailer here:
When Vallow's children JJ, seven, and Tylee, 17, went missing in September 2019, a media storm soon ensued.
She was eventually arrested in January 2020 when she failed to produce her children for concerned authorities after insisting that they were safe.
Just months later, the remains of both children were discovered – one buried in a pet cemetery, and one near the home of Vallow's fifth husband, Chad Daybell.
Currently, Vallow and Daybell are awaiting trial for the murder of JJ and Tylee, with both scheduled to take the stand in January 2023.
A description of the Netflix series reads: "Lori Vallow was known to friends and family as a devoted mother of three, a loving wife, and a woman of God.
"But over the past three years, something went very wrong: Now Lori is in jail, waiting to stand trial for conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of her fourth husband, her fifth husband’s wife, and her two youngest children.
"For the first time, Lori’s surviving son Colby steps forward to provide exclusive insight into his family’s backstory as well as their present-tense narrative as Lori faces justice.
"At the heart of this three-part series is a single burning question: how did a seemingly normal woman become the most notorious mother in America?"
When the trailer dropped for the upcoming series, some true crime fans were ecstatic – many of whom had already been following the case for years.
"I will definitely be checking this out when it drops, such an insane case." read one comment on YouTube.
Another added: "Been waiting for this one! I’ve followed her story from the beginning. It’s unimaginable, what she’s done."
On Twitter, a third Netflix subscriber had written: "I knew she would be a documentary subject some day. Can't wait for this."
Although the excitement for Sins Of Our Mother is already through the roof, some people have expressed concerns that the documentary could possibly impact the ongoing case.
One true crime fan commented: "You [realise] that you could be affecting the case by releasing this prior to the trials."
Another noted: "Whoa, didn't know they were making a Netflix doc about this. Especially since it's still going through the courts."
Tyla has reached out to Netflix for comment.
This is definitely one that we'll be keeping an eye on.
Sins Of Our Mother will land on Netflix on 14 September.
