Ozark is Netflix’s biggest crime series to date and with that show now over, there’s a gaping hole left. Don’t worry, though, plenty of new crime series are in development at Netflix and we’ll walk you through most to all of them below.
This is one of the many genre previews we’ve produced in recent months looking at what’s coming to Netflix in 2022 and beyond. Some other previews you may be interested in if you love the crime genre includes our preview for upcoming action movies, comic book adaptations, and fantasy shows and movies.
Moonage Pictures, the producers behind Curfew, Intergalactic, and The Pursuit of Love is coming to Netflix with a new crime comic adaptation about four detectives in four different time periods in London who find themselves investigating the same murder.
We’ve got more on Bodies in our ongoing preview for the upcoming series.
One of the many projects in development for Netflix by Aggregate Films (the production company headed up by Jason Bateman) is Florida Man, a new crime drama series due to release in 2022.
About an ex-cop returning home to Florida to find a mobster’s runaway girlfriend at his doorstep.
Abbey Lee, Edgar Ramirez, Clark Gregg, Emory Cohen, and Anthony LaPaglia to star.
A British-produced crime mini-series on the way with the likes of Stanley Tucci, David Tennant, Lydia West, Dolly Wells and Katie Dickie starring.
Here’s what you can expect:
“A prisoner on death row in the US and a woman trapped in a cellar under an English vicarage, cross paths in the most unexpected way.”
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story
One of the most anticipated productions to come out of the lucrative Netflix Ryan Murphy deal will be this limited series on one of the most infamous killers in US history, Jeffrey Dahmer.
Akin to his previous series American Crime Story (which sadly departed Netflix), this series will be told from the perspective of the victims and police incompetency that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree.
Even Peters (known for American Horror Story and X-Men: Apocalypse) is going to be playing the role of Dahmer.
From the creators of Narcos will come a new series (that’s not connected we hasten to add) that focuses on another drug crime lord in the form of Griselda Blanco who will be played by Sofía Vergara of Modern Family fame.
Ingrid Escajeda serves as the showrunner for the new limited series and is filming in the early half of 2022.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area
Money Heist probably is the second biggest Netflix Original crime series to date and is largely equated to the rise in foreign content popularity throughout the last decade.
With the flagship Spanish series over, we’re now about to see the first spinoff arrive on Netflix in June 2022 with the arrival of a K-drama adaptation of the show.
Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster are behind this new TV mini-series at Netflix that looks into the origins of the Opioid crisis in the United States.
The series will focus on the people who profited from the crisis, those who paid the price, those who plotted in boardrooms and those who tried to sound alarm bells.
The series filmed throughout the latter half of 2021 and is set to arrive in 2022. Among the cast confirmed for the limited series includes Uzo Aduba, Matthew Broderick, West Duchovny, Dina Shihabi, and John Rothman.
Ridley Scott is producing this brand new series at Netflix that spans across 24 years and tells the story of one of the most ambitious bank heists in history where they attempt to steal $70 billion dollars in bonds during Hurricane Sandy in New York City.
Among the cast you’ll see in Jigsaw includes Tati Gabrielle (seen in Netflix’s Sabrina series), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Rufus Sewell (Old), Pz Vega (Sex and Lucia), and Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys).
One of the many Millarworld adaptations in development is a live-action series based on the Supercrooks comics (the comic was also adapted into an anime in late 2021 as well).
The comic is about “a gang of super-villains, con-artists, petty thieves and leg-breakers band together for the heist of the century and the most outrageous crime story you’ve ever seen in your life.”
Guy Ritchie returned to his roots in 2019 with the release of The Gentlemen which was a slam dunk in theaters around the world. Now, he’ll reportedly be involved in bringing the IP to television in the form of a new Netflix series. Details are scarce and we don’t know if any of the characters from the movie will return but either way, lots of potential here.
