Netflix has finally released the trailer for “The Keepers”, which is an upcoming crime documentary series. The new documentary has created quite a buzz and it is making people think that this is the next “Making A Murderer” hit.

A Nun’s Story Covered By Her Own Death

As revealed in the newly released trailer, “The Keepers” is an upcoming American documentary series. It will be tackling the unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a nun and school teacher at Seton Keough High School located in Baltimore, Maryland. She reportedly went missing in 1969 and a year later, her body was discovered, bringing to a conclusion that she was murdered.

Until now, locals are baffled by her murder because according to their accounts she was a great person. Her former students claim that corruption was at play and that Cesnik was killed because authorities had to cover up a sexual scandal involving a priest at that time. The documentary is set to get to the bottom of the unsolved case and it scheduled to release on May 19.

Can “The Keepers” Keep Up With “Making A Murderer”?

“The Keepers” documentary web series have been slated to air seven episodes and the trailer that was released gave viewers the familiar vibe from “Making A Murderer”. The latter show was also a documentary series that made its debut on Netflix in December 2015. It ran for 10 episodes and it tackled the story of Steven Avery, a man who was caught for murder after he was exonerated of wrongful charges of sexual assault and attempted murder against him that forced him into 18 years of prison time.

“Making A Murderer” reportedly took more than 10 years to produce and film the series. With “The Keepers”, this could also be the same thing since the accounts gathered from various people for the documentary took them years before they could openly speak up about it. “The Keepers” is set to follow the investigation of Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub on Cesnik’s unsolved murder.
