A&E Bringing Back Cold Case Files


NEW YORK: A&E Network is rebooting the true-crime series Cold Case Files, this time with Danny Glover as narrator.

The series comes from Blumhouse Television (The Jinx) and AMPLE. Cold Case Files originally premiered on A&E in 1998 and ran for nearly ten years, spanning 125 episodes. A new 10×1-hour run will kick off on February 27 at 9 p.m. The return of Cold Case Files will explore compelling new cases that have gone cold for years and chronicle the journeys of the detectives who reopened them. Each episode will feature a single case that has been left unsolved for years.

Cold Case Files remains one of A&E’s most beloved and successful series of all time,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, the executive VP and head of programming for A&E. “The new creative team has infused the franchise with a rejuvenated approach to storytelling at a time when true-crime investigation is capturing the nation’s attention more than ever.”
