Netflix releasing third Crime Scene docuseries on the Texas Killing Fields

A third season of Netflix’s true crime documentary series Crime Scene is coming to the service at the end of November. Joe Berlinger, who has executive produced several projects at Netflix already, including the Conversations with a Killer series and the Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile starring Zac Efron, is returning to produce Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields.

Previous seasons of Crime Scene chronicled the Cecil Hotel, specifically the mysterious death of Elise Lam, and The Times Square Killer. In its third outing, the documentary will explore the Texas Killing Fields. For those unfamiliar, the Texas Killing Fields comprises a 25-acre stretch along Calder Road in League City, Texas.

Oil refineries and marshland have made the patch of land ideal for hiding bodies. Within the past five decades, more than 30 bodies have been discovered there, hence the area’s nickname as the Texas Killing Fields. The majority of these murders have gone unsolved.

Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields will focus primarily on the murders of four young women found in the area between the 1980s and 1990s.

Here is the official synopsis for the docuseries, courtesy of Netflix:

Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger returns to executive produce season three of CRIME SCENE, the acclaimed documentary series exploring the ways in which certain locations aid and abet criminal activity. The new season, directed by Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Jessica Dimmock, investigates the “Texas Killing Fields,” a region with a dark pattern of girls who have disappeared and turned up dead.

Amidst the marshes and oil refineries alongside the interstate corridor connecting Houston and the beach town of Galveston, lies Calder Road – the patch of land that earned its name after the bodies of three young women were discovered there in the 1980s and a fourth in 1991. Their murders remain unsolved, but one grieving father refuses to give up on the hunt for his daughter’s killer, while the search and recovery organization he founded supports other local families facing similar tragedies. His determined pursuit of justice for the victims drives the series as it delves into five decades of the area’s unsettling history, uncovering a pattern of eerie connections and missed opportunities surrounding the Calder Road cold cases that may, at long last, lead investigators to the truth.
