Netflix has released a new trailer for the upcoming docuseries The Sons of Sam: A Descent Into Darkness, premiering Wednesday, May 5. Directed by Joshua Zeman, the series not only takes a second look at the infamous string of murders that took place in New York in the 1970s, but also examines the argument that the perpetrator David Berkowitz, also known by the self-proclaimed name Son of Sam, did not operate alone. To support this, the series explores the work of journalist Maury Terry, who became convinced that Berkowitz had accomplices and spent decades attempting to prove it. Check out the new trailer here.
It’s interesting that many of the comments on the video are asking for a third season of Mindhunter. The series detailed the origins of criminal-profiling by the FBI and examined the cases of killers such as Charles Manson and Son of Sam.
