I Am a Killer, a true-crime series from Znak & Co, has been renewed for a second season by the A+E Networks UK channel Crime+Investigation (CI), with a second window on Netflix.

The series features in-depth interviews with some of the longest-serving prisoners in America, and explores the impact of their crimes on their communities and families. While season one of I Am a Killer only followed imprisoned men, the second season also features female “lifers” and Death Row inmates as it tackles themes of repentance and redemption.

The first season of I Am a Killer premiered on CI in the U.K. in October 2018 and is available around the world on Netflix.

Natalka Znak, executive producer for Znak & Co, said: “Amazing access and incredibly gripping stories have made this format a global fan favorite, attracting incredible critical response. This is a great success for our factual department, led by Danny Tipping who has built a team of talented crime and docu experts, making Znak & Co a real player in this genre.”

Danny Tipping, executive producer for Znak & Co, added: “I’m extremely proud of this series—it shows that you can tell these challenging stories with integrity and without compromise, and still find a global audience.”

Diana Carter, CI commissioning editor and executive producer, said: “I Am a Killer plays a key part in our programming strategy; sitting alongside other locally produced hits like Murdertown with Katherine Kelly and the forthcoming Evil Up Close. Our audience of passionate true-crime fans appreciated the thoughtful and carefully crafted approach of the filmmakers to such controversial subject matter. We are proud to bring it back for a second season.”
