The highly anticipated 7th season of the hit Spanish criminal drama is set to premiere on Netflix in 2023. Elite is one of the most popular Spanish-language shows on Netflix.

1. Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (Season 2 and Season 3)

Director:Naoki Urasawa
Netflix Release Date:2024

Season one of the American whole crime anthology series Monster, developed by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan for Netflix, is titled Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The show chronicles the development of Jeffrey Dahmer into one of the most infamous serial killers in American history. Between 1978 and 1991, he was responsible for murders in Bath Township, Ohio, West Allis, Wisconsin, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Though outrageously horrific, true crime shows have something equally compelling. Some YouTubers cover the same topics as the major broadcasting channels but with a few original twists, making YouTube a veritable gold mine of real crime footage. So if you’re seeking high-quality true crime content, watch the videos by Christina Randall and Kendall Rae; these channels are worthwhile.
