It’s time for some true crime! In their latest docu-series, Netflix will be digging into the life of a controversial figure and sex offender who recently passed away. The show will feature exclusive stories from his victims, as well as a look at the infamous Jeffrey Epstein island and some of his darkest secrets.

Earlier this month, the streaming service shared the trailer for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, a four-part docu-series that will be examining the life and death of the well-known financial tycoon.

Although Epstein is now dead, his accusers have revealed that several other people were involved in his scandals, and they’re hoping to find justice and bring their truths to the light.

“He was known as this Gatsby-like figure of mystery. He was stunningly rich. He had a $20 million house, his own private island in the Caribbean...It has a nickname: the Pedophile Island,” voices can be heard saying in the trailer.

According to the video, the police first received reports about young women visiting Epstein’s residence as early as 2005.

“There was an ever-revolving door of girls,” one woman says in the trailer. It’s also revealed that many of the girls solicited by Epstein were underage at the time.

Because of his immense wealth and power, Epstein’s lawyers were able to work out a deal with the U.S. Attorney’s office, allowing him to essentially get away with the crimes he committed without facing any real consequences.

Throughout the upcoming series, viewers will hear from several women who survived encounters with Epstein and others as they continue to seek out justice.

“He’s dead but did not act alone, none of them have been held accountable. The monsters are still out there. You took our freedom, now we’re going to take yours,” a voice from the video says.

True crime has been a popular genre for the streamer this year with the release of documentaries like Trial by Media, Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story, and How to Fix a Drug Scandal, among many others.

Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich is coming to Netflix on Wednesday, May 27. You can check out the trailer for the powerful new series below.
