New True Crime Documentaries Coming to Netflix 2018

2 Chilling Documentaries Are Coming to Netflix to Feed Your True Crime Obsession

If you've scrolled through Netflix lately, then you've likely spotted more than a few high-profile true crime documentaries. The streaming giant's (and our own) obsession with twisted, real-life cases began with the fervour that surrounded Making a Murderer's 2015 debut, and hasn't shown any signs of dying down. Since then, we've gotten more entries into the true crime genre in the form of haunting addicting docuseries like The Keepers and Wild Wild Country, and even American Vandal's true crime spoof.

To keep us binging weekend after weekend, Netflix has gone one step further and secured two more documentary series for us all to be simultaneously fascinated and terrified by. Sound like something you'd be interested in? Take a look at what's to come in Netflix's true crime sizzle reel above, as well as what the new docs will be about below.


Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist


Have you ever heard of the "pizza bomber heist?" No? Well, executive producers Mark and Jay Duplass have teamed up to bring the story to light, and it's truly stranger than fiction. The documentary explores the aftermath of a robbery gone wrong in Erie, Pennsylvania, in 2003, which resulted in a horrifying public murder that made headlines across the nation. The story involves Midwestern hoarders, bombs, conspiracies, mental illness, and middle-aged mastermind named Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong at the centre of it all.


The Staircase


In 2001, Michael Peterson, a crime novelist and mayoral candidate hopeful in North Carolina, was accused of killing his wife after she was found dead and drenched in blood at the bottom of a staircase in their home. What followed is a compelling tale of "did he or didn't he," plus a 16-year battle in court. Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade embedded himself within the case as Peterson became a prime suspect. He was able to capture each and every shocking moment, from arrest to verdict. Brand new episodes of The Staircase are set to premiere first at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and eventually stream on Netflix alongside the original series.
