‘Binge-worthy’ true crime series from Law & Order creator has Netflix fans ‘hooked’ just minutes in

The five-part series explores some of New York’s most horrific murder cases.

A new true crime docu-series from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf has viewers ‘hooked.’ Homicide: New York landed on Netflix on Wednesday March 20 and has been hailed ‘binge-worthy’ by fans on social media.

The five-parter is currently sat at number three in the Netflix UK TV charts. Dick Wolf, the brains behind 90s American crime drama Law & Order, has revisited some of the grisliest murder cases from the big apple. Homicide: New York explores five different stories.

These include the 1997 stabbing murder of a man in Central Park and the 2001 Carnegie Deli massacre, where five people were found shot in an apartment above the restaurant. The show features interviews with the NYPD, as well as survivors, friends, and families of the victims.

As one officer puts it in the trailer, which can be viewed below: “Every single case takes a little piece out of your soul.”

Executive producer Jane Lipsitz told Netflix of the series: “You can read what happened [in these cases] on Wikipedia, but you don’t get the human side of the story. You don’t have the context of the victim’s families and friends. That obviously is a huge part of it, and really creates some emotional connection for the audience.”

Viewers took to X, formerly Twitter, to recommend the new series. @Alisesierra said: “This new doc-series on Netflix called “Homicide: New York” got me in the choke hold… I’m hooked” as @RUTH_S_H echoed: “Homicide New York on #Netflix “Dead bodies, Central Park, the Precinct…” I’m hooked three minutes in.”

@Eshtalk said: “”Homicide New York” has me completely hooked! This gripping series uncovers real murder cases in NYC, keeping me glued to the screen. It’s a binge-worthy masterpiece on Netflix!”

@Meesh6905 said: “If you are into crime documentaries like I am you need to watch New York Homicide on Netflix. Dick Wolf is the master of crime” as @parrisentertain reckoned: “Homicide New York is extremely well done, one of the best crime series I have watched in a long time”.

Others called for more editions of the show, as @mrmathsmith said: “Watching “Homicide: New York” on @netflix. I hope they make this a series with other cities: Boston, Chicago, L.A., Miami, etc.”

True crime fans can look forward to Homicide: Los Angeles which is set to drop later in the year.
