“The Staircase”: Netflix’s Next Foray Into True Crime

Something to fill your true crime needs…

After Netflix’s Making a Murderer and HBO’s The Jinx, true crime docu-series have really taken off.

And with the second season of Making a Murderer delayed, many are looking for the next true crime series to binge. Luckily, Netflix has an answer: The Staircase.

Watch the trailer below:

The Staircase follows novelist Michael Peterson after his second wife, Kathleen Peterson, was found dead at the bottom of a staircase. Countless news articles (and wikipedia) can tell you a lot more, but I’ll leave it at that—the less you know, the better.

Directed by Jean-Xavier Lestrade, The Staircase first aired all the way back in 2003, but three new episodes will be added, bringing the total to a whopping thirteen episodes (for comparison, Making a Murderer was ten episodes long).

The series is set for release on June 8th. Hopefully, you can make it till then.

For more info on the second season of Making a Murderer, check out this article.

Netflix’s Mindhunter, meanwhile, may not be entirely true crime, but it’s got David Fincher and serial killers… what more do you need?
