Netflix have released a list of must-watch true crime documentaries

There's been a lot of true crime-inspired programmes arriving on Netflix lately.

The 'jaw-dropping', 'stranger than fiction' Abducted In Plain Sight left viewers totally shaken.


Meanwhile, the streaming service had to issue a statement about The Ted Bundy Tapes, encouraging people not to watch it alone.

It seems like people just can't get enough of the genre.

So, earlier this week, Netflix took to Twitter with a list of binge-watchable true crime TV shows and documentaries.


They wrote:

"If you liked Fyre and The Ted Bundy Tapes may we suggest Abducted in Plain Sight, a doc you can also file under 'what in the actual f*ck'."

They followed that up with a list of of true crime docs that "should keep you busy for a while" - aka: the perfect weekend binge-watch for fans of the genre.


Here they are.
