Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal release date

Lucky for all the true crime fans, you won’t have to wait too long to see Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal, as the series is set to be released on Netflix (and only Netflix) on Feb. 22.

Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal synopsis

Here are the details of the three-part series that were provided in the description of the trailer released by Netflix earlier this week:

"“The Murdaughs were one of South Carolina’s most prominent families, but the death of teenager Mallory Beach in a drunken boating accident began the unraveling of their legacy. When Paul Murdaugh – the alleged driver of the boat – and his mother Maggie are found brutally murdered, a century of corruption, power, and cover-ups in the Low Country is brought to light.”"

This is a documentary series, so Netflix also stated that we’d be seeing “first-hand accounts from those on the boat that fateful night, many of whom have not spoken about the crash or double homicide of Maggie and Paul until now.”

Having said this, it is safe to say that never before heard information surrounding this case will be released via these new points of view, which will be a lot for the budding crime detectives out there to digest.
