The Night Stalker holds a bizarre place in the history of true crime. Based on his victim count and the way he haunted California for one chilling summer, he should be one of the most discussed serial killers in modern history. And yet that’s rarely the case. Terrors like Ted Bundy and Dennis Rader often overshadow this monster. Netflix’s latest true crime docuseries, Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer, aims to change that.
Told over four hour-long episodes, Night Stalker dives into the police investigation that brought this monster to light. Wondering when you can watch this saga? Here’s everything you need to know.
