Netflix has some great true crime for you to consume this month!

We are three months into 2024 and the streaming true crime docuseries are on fire! Like most folks, I love a good true crime tale and this year’s early crop does not disappoint.  If you are wondering why folks are so obsessed with the evil actions of others, there’s actual science behind it.

According to the NY Post: “True crime can have a learning component to it or at least a perceived learning component. We feel like we’re more prepared in these kinds of situations. So if this dangerous situation were to occur, you feel a little more prepared and know what you should or shouldn’t do. This claim is supported by research data collected by OnePoll. The new survey of 2,000 self-reported true crime fans found that 76% feel that consuming content about true crime helps them avoid similar situations happening to them. The average respondent consumes five true crime programs each month, with 75% saying they watch the latest program the instant it’s released and 71% typically binge-watching the entire thing in one sitting.

The survey also found that 44% of respondents admit they have a “favorite” serial killer and 67% would like the opportunity to chat with one.

Over seven in ten of those polled (71%) also admit to feeling less trustworthy of other people due to how much true crime content they consume.”

So, it’s no surprise that the genre is red hot at the moment.  Check out the newest true crime offerings from all the most popular streaming services!
