Netflix is continuing to cement its place as a go-to source for true crime, and the streamer's latest serial killer docuseries is generating plenty of buzz on social media. Following on the heels of other hit true crime titles to find their home on Netflix – we're talking everything from Abducted in Plain Sight to Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes to Don't F**k with Cats – Catching Killers arrived in the streaming platform's library on Thursday, Nov. 4, quickly hooking viewers with its twist on the true crime genre.
Produced by Louise Norman, Tom Keeling, and Lydia Delmonte and directed by Suemay Oram, Catching Killers focuses on the investigators who apprehended and helped incarcerate some of the world's most violent killers rather than focusing on the killers themselves and the heinous crimes they committed. In the show, the investigators "reveal the harrowing, chilling details of their extraordinary efforts," according to the official synopsis. Throughout the four-episode series, the show examines the cases of the Green River Killer, the Aileen Wuornos case, and the Happy Face Killer case, which is split into two parts.
Upon its debut, Catching Killers made its way into the Top 10 most-popular TV series titles on the streaming platform, hitting the No. 6 spot. While the series has since dropped out of the Top 10 chart, it is still generating plenty of buzz from viewers online, many of whom had said they were instantly hooked by the show.
