When is The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness coming out on Netflix?

There isn't long to wait for this new Netflix documentary series to drop.

You can stream it from TOMORROW (May 5, 2021) from 8am.

Netflix posted the full trailer on Twitter, alongside the caption: "When David Berkowitz was arrested in 1977, New York City breathed easy now that the monster behind the Son of Sam killings was behind bars.

"But one man has spent decades trying to prove that Berkowitz didn’t act alone."

What is The Sons of Sam about?

The hunt for the “Son of Sam” captivated the world in the late 1970s, but the story behind one of America’s most notorious serial murderers is all but forgotten — until now.

While the arrest and conviction of David Berkowitz brought the nightmare to an end for many New Yorkers, for journalist and Ultimate Evil author Maury Terry, the real mystery was just beginning.

Terry, convinced Berkowitz had not acted alone, would go on to spend decades attempting to prove that the web of darkness behind the murders went deeper than anyone imagined – and his pursuit of that elusive truth would eventually cost him everything.

Filmmaker Joshua Zeman draws on archival news footage, conversations with the people closest to the investigation, and Terry’s own words and case files to tell a cautionary tale of a man who went down a rabbit hole and never came out.

But was Maury Terry just chasing ghosts – or are the true Sons of Sam still out there?

How many episodes are there of The Sons of Sam?

The documentary is made by filmmaker Joshua Zeman, and there are four episodes in the series.

The Sons of Sam is the latest true crime docuseries to arrive on Netflix, after Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel had everyone talking in early 2021
