The best true crime documentaries on Netflix

Netflix crime documentaries come with the kind of real life dramz so gripping that for that hour or so, you forget everything else in life. It’s for this reason that we can’t. Get. Enough. And we’re not the only ones.

We never get tired of discovering how disturbingly screwed up the human race is – the fact that real-life people have carried out some of these crimes is truly disturbing, but in some weird way, compelling.

And if you were in any doubt over just how much we’re a nation of true crime lovers (TV only, obvs), just look at all the true crime documentaries that have popped up on the streaming platform over the last few months, like The Tinder Swindler and Bad Vegan. In fact, the true crime stories only seem to be getting more weird as we go along and our appetite only seems to increase. 

So, got your notepad at the ready and detective hat on? Great. Because when it comes to the murky world of true crime docs, nothing is ever what it seems. From stories that tap into secret lives, dangerous roommates, tales of millennial scamming, and murder, these are the best true crime documentaries to watch on Netflix right now.
