Netflix crime shows: Unbelievable

1 season 

Created by Susannah Grant, Ayelet Waldman, and Michael Chabon

Starring Toni Collette, Merritt Wever, and Kaitlyn Dever

Unbelievable is one of the most incredible Netflix shows to date, and it’s even based on a true story that was chronicled in ProPublica, “An Unbelievable Story of Rape” by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong.

This show is going to be difficult to watch for many viewers. The events shown in the series will likely be triggering for some individuals, so please take that into consideration before watching the series.

The series follows a young woman’s life after she was raped by an intruder in the Seattle area. At the same time, the story also follows the investigation into a serial rapist by two detectives in Colorado.

The show was nominated for several Golden Globes and three Emmys. There’s a good chance the Netflix show will leave the virtual Emmys with several award wins.

If you haven’t seen this series, we highly recommend it. It features amazing performances from Kaitlyn Dever, Toni Collette and Merritt Weaver. They are truly outstanding in the Netflix show.

There will not be a second season of the Netflix series, unless something drastic changes. We’ll keep you posted, but don’t get your hopes up.
