Nobody does true crime documentaries quite like Netflix, as they hook viewers in and have them all asking the same questions.


Hot on the heels of the success of their previous Crime Scene docuseries like The Times Square Killer and The Vanishing at Cecil Hotel comes their brand new case - The Texas Killing Fields.

The third season of Crime Scene will focus on the largely unsolved tragic murders of four young girls found in the same area - a 25-acre stretch along Calder Road in League City, Texas.

But what happened to the victims? And how were their bodies discovered?

Executive Producer Joe Berlinger, who has worked on previous Netflix projects including Conversations with a Killer, will be opening the case file to try to answer just some of these questions. It will be directed by Jessica Dimmock and consists of three, 50 minute episodes.

As the anticipated, chilling series arrives on Netflix, here’s all you need to know.

What is Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields about?

The latest docuseries in Netflix's library will delve into the case of The Texas Killing Fields - a 25-acre area in Texas that has earned its dark nickname after a series of young women were discovered dead there.

In the 1980s, three girls with seemingly no connection mysteriously vanished without a trace, only to be found at Calder Road, a desolate patch of land dotted by a few oil rigs.

Later, in 1991, a fourth victim was discovered in the same spot. Decades later, their murders remain unsolved.

However, one of the girls' grieving fathers, Tim Miller, has refused to give up telling their stories and is determined to find out what happened and catch her killer.

The three-parter follows his pursuit for justice, as the team go back five decades and uncover "a pattern of eerie connections and missed opportunities surrounding the Calder Road cases that may, at long last, lead investigators to the truth".
