New True Crime Documentary Knocks Mystery Thriller ‘Fool Me Once’ Off Top Spot on Netflix

LONDON, UK – The captivating mystery thriller series “Fool Me Once” has been dethroned from the top spot on Netflix after a successful run in the UK. Starring Michelle Keegan, Joanna Lumley, and Adeel Akhtar, the nail-biting show is based on the novel by American author Harlan Coben. Since its release on New Year’s Day, it has consistently ranked on Netflix’s top 10 TV shows list.

The plot of “Fool Me Once” revolves around Maya Burkett, played by Michelle Keegan, who grapples with the murder of her husband Joe, following the killing of her sister Claire. Maya’s world takes a chilling turn when she spots her supposedly deceased husband on a secret nanny cam installed to monitor their daughter Lily. What follows is a web of lies and conspiracy as Maya embarks on a quest to unravel the truth about Joe’s fate and the potential involvement of his family.

As viewers eagerly consumed the series, Michelle Keegan expressed her amazement and described the success as a dream come true. However, the popularity of “Fool Me Once” has begun to wane as a new true crime documentary takes over the number one spot on Netflix.

Titled “American Nightmare,” the three-part series recounts the harrowing story of Denise Huskins and Aaron Quinn, infamously known as the Gone Girl hoaxer couple. In 2015, Denise was abducted from their California home in Vallejo and endured two days of drugging and assault before being released near her parents’ residence. Despite skepticism from investigators, the true perpetrator eventually confessed, leading Huskins to successfully sue the police department for defamation.

The intense and astonishing narrative of “American Nightmare” has captivated audiences, with viewers describing it as one of the craziest true crime documentaries they have ever seen. Praise for the series flooded in, with one user calling it the greatest documentary they’ve ever watched and another describing it as horrifying. The documentary also sheds light on issues of police and FBI incompetency and corruption, making it a valuable lesson for viewers.

Fans of true crime and suspenseful dramas now have two gripping options to choose from on Netflix, as “Fool Me Once” and “American Nightmare” continue to be available for streaming.
