New Episodes of These 3 Serial Killer Shows Are Coming This Fall
Fall is approaching, which means many TV lovers are looking for something a little spookier to watch on Netflix, Hulu, or wherever they get their favorite shows. Lucky for them, there are plenty of horror movies, psychological thrillers, and serial killer shows to go around. For fans looking for something new, these three fictional serial killer shows are some of the best. Each one is releasing new episodes this fall, but there’s plenty of time for fans to get caught up before they come out.
‘Big Sky’ Season 2 – Sept. 30
Big Sky is a crime drama based on The Highway book series written by C.J. Box. The series, created by David E. Kelley, revolves around two young sisters who are abducted by a long-haul truck driver along a highway in Montana. Two private detectives and a former cop join forces to find the girls. They soon discover that the sisters are not the only young women to have gone missing near that highway.
Blue Sky is a fictional series. However, according to Bustle, the show is based on a terrifying and real phenomenon. There have been quite a few real-life serial killer truck drivers over the years, such as Robert Ben Rhoades and Samuel Leg III (aka Dr. No). These “truck stop killers” often target sex workers, and their crimes go largely unnoticed until they stray from their M.O. This is precisely what happens in Big Sky. Season 1 is currently available on Hulu. Season 2 will premiere on ABC on Sept. 30 at 10 p.m. ET.
‘You’ Season 3 – Oct. 15
Netflix’s You disturbed and delighted fans with its glimpse into the mind of a stalker and serial killer. Penn Badgley plays Joe Goldberg, a man who obsessively stalks a new woman with every season. Joe will do anything to get what he wants, including murder quite a few people. The series gives fans inside access to Joe’s deluded mind. His inner monologue plays throughout the episodes.
Seasons 2 left fans on a cliffhanger. It’s hard to guess what will happen next now that Joe is expecting a baby and has found a new woman to obsess over. Netflix recently announced that You season 3 would be available for streaming on Oct. 15. The first two seasons are currently available on Netflix.
‘Dexter: New Blood’ – Nov. 7
Similarly to You, Showtime’s Dexter gave fans inside access to the mind of a fictional serial killer. Dexter Morgan is a blood splatter analyst for Miami Metro Homicide. By night, he is a serial killer who kills other serial killers. Dexter ended back in 2013, and many fans were disappointed by the finale.
Lucky for them, the series has a shot at redemption. A revival of the series called Dexter: New Blood will premiere on Showtime on Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. ET. The series will pick back up 10 years after the finale. It will follow Dexter’s new life in the small town of Iron Lake, New York, as he tries to keep his dark passenger at bay. All eight seasons of Dexter are currently available on Hulu.
