Hulu has released a new trailer for How I Caught My Killer, an upcoming docuseries that’ll explore true-crime stories and how victims helped to solve their murders. However, there’s nothing supernatural at play since the focus of the docuseries is the clues that victims leave behind and how they help detectives catch killers.

The trailer starts with explaining that roughly ten thousand murders remain unsolved in America every year.

More often than not, police forces pay less attention to crimes that affect certain marginalized groups. As a result, we have a clear demographic pattern of whose murders are left unsolved.

All nine episodes of How I Caught My Killer come to Hulu on January 12. Check out the new trailer and the series synopsis below.

How I Caught My Killer is a true-crime docu-series that highlights the real-life stories behind unique homicide cases with in-depth interviews, authentic archival material and cinematic recreations all packaged together into a fresh spin in the genre. Whether it’s a fraught letter to a friend, an urgent text message detailing a heated argument, a private diary entry describing a horrifying experience, or an ominous social media post revealing a motive for murder…these victims all leave a case-breaking clue that will one day help to solve their crime.

Every curated case details a complex portrait of a human being whose life was cut short by a killer that would have escaped justice if it hadn’t been for the victim’s own actions. Ultimately, the twists and turns of the investigations into these victim-solved crimes expose an awful truth in America today: our systemic failures as a nation all too frequently deny many citizens justice. Each episode forces us to confront the harsh reality that our system is blind to many underserved and invisible communities that make up a disproportionate percentage of the people who lose their lives to homicide every year.
