Cold Case Files is back. Deadline reports A&E is reviving the true crime series with Danny Glover.
The long-running docuseries began in 1999 and investigated unsolved murders with the help of modern forensics and criminal psychology. The original series ran for nearly 10 years and was twice nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Nonfiction Series.
A&E has ordered 10 new episodes of Cold Case Files, narrated by Glover. The new season is set to premiere on February 27th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
From Blumhouse Television and independent production studio AMPLE, the new Cold Case Files will explore compelling new cases that have gone cold for years and chronicle the journeys of the detectives who reopened them. The detectives relive the events of the crimes, reveal new twists and revelations, relying on breakthroughs in forensic technology and the influence of social media to help crack the cases. Each hourlong episode will feature a single case that has been left unsolved for years, with cinematic dramatizations and first-person storytelling from the detectives and loved ones who lived through the harrowing experiences.”
