‘The Staircase’: Netflix Offers Another Twisty True Crime Story

Have you already devoured all four episodes of Evil Genius on Netflix? Don’t worry, there will be a brand-new true crime series to binge watch in June: The Staircase.

On December 9, 2001, Kathleen Peterson was found dead at the bottom of a staircase. Did her husband, crime novelist Michael Peterson, do it?

Netflix just released the full trailer for the series. Check it out below.

Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade started following the case immediately following Kathleen’s death in 2001 in Durham, North Carolina. His ten-episode series covering the murder, the trial, and its aftermath premiered in 2004.

De Lestrade has since filmed three more episodes. Netflix will be airing the new episodes, along with the original 2004 series, on June 8.

What do you think of this trailer? Will you be tuning in on June 8?
