Created by Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus—Hannah previously worked on The Dropout and Mindhunter while Macmanus’ credits include Marco Polo and Dr. Death, The Girl from Plainville is a new drama miniseries based on a true story.

Spinning salacious true crime stories into gripping, awards-bait limited series is all the rage right now, from shows like Inventing Anna, The Thing About Pam and The Dropout to Apple TV+’s WeCrashed and the upcoming dueling Candy Montgomery series, we’re in a bit of a true crime glut at the moment.

Next up is The Girl from Plainville, a dramatization of the events that led to Conrad Roy’s death and his girlfriend Michelle Carter’s conviction for involuntary manslaughter. Actress Elle Fanning will star as Michelle while Colton Ryan plays Conrad. The series also stars Chloë Sevigny, Norbert Leo Butz, Cara Buono and Kai Lennox.

Is The Girl from Plainville on Netflix?

No. And odds are the series will not be on Netflix because it will be streaming on Hulu. That said, it’s not impossible for a Hulu Original series to stream on Netflix, as is the case with Casual, which will start streaming on Netflix soon. But it is very rare.

Where to watch Is The Girl from Plainville

Right now, the only place you can watch The Girl from Plainville starring Elle Fanning is on Hulu. You will need a Hulu subscription to watch the series. The first three episodes will be available on Tuesday, March 29, with one episode airing every Tuesday after until the finale on May 3. As far as we know, Hulu is the only place you can watch the show, meaning you cannot rent or purchase it digitally.

Shows like The Girl from Plainville on Netflix

If you want to watch something similar on Netflix, I recommend the aforementioned Inventing Anna or other crime dramas like Lost Girls and Unbelievable. You might also consider watching All the Bright Places, which stars Fanning and was co-written by Liz Hannah.
