Netflix will debut three brand new episodes alongside the original 2004 series; all 13 episodes will launch globally on Netflix on June 8. Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Jean-Xavier de Lestrade was granted unusual access to the case immediately following Kathleen's death in 2001 in Durham, North Carolina. Her husband, Michael, a local public figure and successful novelist, quickly becomes the prime suspect. De Lestrade's cameras were on hand to capture every moment of this extraordinary story from arrest to verdict, following in intimate detail Peterson's home, the family and his defense team as it considered its strategic options. The Staircase is a gripping real-life courtroom thriller, offering a rare and revealing inside-look at a high-profile murder trial and is an engrossing examination of contemporary American justice.
