The runaway success of Making a Murderer proved that there is a huge audience for true crime documentary series and Netflix aren't wasting any time on capitalizing on it with the release of their new series, The Keepers.
The show is a seven part series focusing on the unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a Catholic nun in Baltimore, Maryland. A beloved high school teacher, Sister Cathy went missing on November 7th, 1969 and her body was found two months later. Nobody has ever been charged with her murder.
The series will highlight the events leading up to Sister Cathy's murder, the suspected cover up by the Catholic Church and the developments that have happened since then. In the 1990s one of Sister Cathy's former students, known only as 'Jane Doe', came forward to share her experience of horrendous sexual abuse at the hands of the the high school's chaplain.
She also claimed that she was taken to see Sister Cathy's undiscovered body and was told, 'See what happens when you say bad things about people.'
All seven episodes will be streaming on Netflix from May 19th.
