The true crime bonanza continues. On Monday, Netflix quietly announced its brand-new docuseries called The Keepers, which will explore the unsolved murder of a young Baltimore nun who went missing in 1969. Directed by Ryan White, the show, which premieres on May 19, will piece together the life and death of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a Catholic schoolteacher who mysteriously went missing and was eventually found dead two months later.
The upcoming seven-episode series immediately drew comparisons to Netflix’s obsessively watched 2015 show Making a Murderer, which similarly re-examined a murky crime that took place decades ago. According to Netflix’s cryptic press release, the cold case of Sister Cathy’s murder returned to the news cycle in the ’90s, after a former student reported being sexually abused by one of the members of the clergy back then, and even admitted being shown the teacher’s undiscovered body as a warning as to what might happen should the student speak up.
Although there have been several recent news articles on the Sister Cathy case since then, Netflix’s new show promises an exhaustive deep dive into the old investigation and will feature interviews with “dozens of friends, relatives, journalists, government officials, and Baltimore citizens determined to uncover the truth.” A trailer of The Keepers is set to drop later this week. Consider us intrigued.
