Yeti Television has been commissioned by AMC Networks International UK (AMCNI UK) to make a second season of the true crime series The Truth About My Murder (10×60’), which is set to air on TRUE CRIME – formerly known as CBS Reality – in early 2024.

TRUE CRIME is a joint venture between AMCNI UK and Paramount Global.

Season 2 of The Truth About My Murder will once again see forensic pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd tackle ten complex murder cases, guiding the audience through each victim’s post-mortem to reveal the truth behind the crimes they were subjected to.

From a state-of-the-art laboratory at Manchester Metropolitan University and with a ground-breaking technology called an Anatomage Table that uses digitally scanned sample bodies, the series follows Dr Shepherd as he investigates a series of murders where pathology played a leading role in solving the case and bringing the killers to justice.

Featuring 4 US and 6 UK murders, the cases include Laureline Garcia-Bertaux who was crushed and asphyxiated by her Russian ex-boyfriend; Peter McMahon whose horrific torture by his fiancée led to his death; and a mysterious poisoning in America that took twenty years to solve.

Season 2 was commissioned by AMCNI UK’s Sam Rowden and Jess Rampling. The series was produced by Carole Lochhead, executive produced by Yeti’s Creative Director Sian Price, and the series is being distributed by Boat Rocker.

Sian Price, Creative Director at Yeti says “After the great response to Season One, we’re thrilled to be back with a second season and working with the wonderful Dr Shepherd once more. Dr Shepherd’s expertise demonstrates how science and pathology not only solves crimes but gives voice to the victims of crime. We are also proud that the series will help raise awareness of the behavioural ‘red flags’ we should all be alert to when it comes to the perpetrators of violent crime.”

Sam Rowden, VP, Content Group at AMCNI UK, says “The Truth About My Murder with Dr Richard Shepherd delivers an unparalleled expertise in a specific area of murder investigations. It gives the viewer a great insight into the process by using some of the latest forensic technology which allows the victims’ bodies to tell the truth. It has been a pleasure to work with Yeti and Dr Shepherd on this second season, and we look forward to sharing it with our audiences across all our services.”
