For die-hard fans of Making a Murderer, Netflix has come up with another original documentary series. The Confession Tapes released on September 8, which showcases multiple stories of people who claim they were coerced into giving a false confession of murders.
The series has seven episodes featuring 6 stories in all. Touted as a spiritual successor to Netflix’s first true-crime series – Making A Murderer, this series attempts to examine why these confessions happen, what can be done to stop them, and how innocent people can ensure that they do not fall victim to the factors that may cause false confessions.
Featuring on the show are people who have been freed or exonerated by having their confessions reviewed, and others who are spending their lives in jail, with no one knowing that their confessions were actually false.
