FilmRise and CBS AMC Networks U.K. Channels Partnership greenlit a second season of the true-crime hit series Killers: Caught on Camera. The partnership is a collaboration between AMC Networks International U.K. and Paramount Global, Blue Ant Studios, and Back 2 Back Productions.

The series debuted on February 15, 2023, in the U.K. and gave audiences a “front-row seat to footage” along with an in-depth analysis of “bad decisions and acts of pure evil.” The first season performed well in the global market, tallying 22 million views on FilmRise True Crime streaming channels, according to Ben Barrett of Blue Ant Studios, which serves as co-producer for the second season.

“We are delighted to announce that Blue Ant will once again join us as co-producers for the upcoming season of this captivating and addictive true-crime program,” said Max Einhorn, senior vice president of acquisitions and co-productions at FilmRise. “It comes as no surprise to us that audiences are eagerly anticipating a second season. We look forward to the longevity of the series.”

The second season of Killers: Caught on Camera will feature ten new episodes that follow the same found footage documentary format as season one. Each episode showcases criminals caught in the act through home security cameras, CCTV, cellphones, and dashcams. The footage highlights how detectives catch perpetrators and solve cases.

The footage is backed by testimony from family members of the victims as well as law enforcement personnel’s first-hand accounts of the events. Dr. Jula Shaw, a specialist in false memory and criminal psychology, narrates the show and “dissects the darkest corners of the mind.” Dr. Shaw is also the co-host of BBC Sounds’ top-ranking podcast Bad People, where she analyzes the behavior of murderers, sex offenders, cannibals, and serial killers.

The 60-minute series highlights cases such as how a hidden camera in a bag of chocolates solved a laundry room murder, as well as a sister who tracks down her brother’s killer by becoming an amateur sleuth. Each 60-minute episode covers two cases, solved with the help of the numerous types of cameras, often forgotten about, stealthily recording people’s daily lives.

A study by ReoLink shows a person is ReoLink shows a person is likely to end up on surveillance cameras throughout their workplace, shops, and public spaces an average of 70 times a day and that residential security camera use will increase by 64% over five years. According to Earth Web, the U.S. leads the world in the number of CCTV cameras per person, with 15.28 cameras per hundred. China ranks second with 14.36 cameras per 100 people.
