It seems like there’s no shortage of amazing true crime stories to share. We have podcasts like Serial giving us modern-day mysteries and Netflix’s Making a Murderer unraveling unsolved crimes of the past. While we’ve been waiting (and will continue to wait) for Making a Murderer’s next season, Netflix is releasing a true crime series that will fill the void and become your newest obsession.
According to Vanity Fair, Netflix’s The Keepers tells the story of the 1969 murder of then-26-year-old nun Cathy Cesnik. While the crime remains unsolved, there have been, in recent years, some potential leads as to what exactly happened to Sister Cathy.
The crime took place in Baltimore, MD, and in recent years, cold case police have come down to two potential suspects in her death (both of whom are now deceased). While the crime has never been solved, new evidence only started coming to light in the last few years (including church scandal and a violent priest), which probably lead to renewed interest in the case.
The show is directed by Ryan White, who has tackled marriage equality and a bio of Serena Williams in his previous films. While we don’t know anything else about the series, Netflix has announced that the release date will be May 19, which means that you have plenty of time to get things in order for a binge-watching session.
