Cold Case Files being rebooted by A&E
A&E is digging up Cold Case Files
After 12 years off the air, the cable network is rebooting its popular procedural true crime series for a new run.
The network has ordered 10 new episodes to be narrated by Danny Glover, which will debut starting Monday, Feb. 27.
“Cold Case Files remains one of A&E’s most beloved and successful series of all time,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, A&E’s head of programming. “The new creative team has infused the franchise with a rejuvenated approach to storytelling at a time when true crime investigation is capturing the nation’s attention more than ever.”
True crime is currently en vogue again thanks to Netflix’s Making a Murderer and FX’s American Crime Story. Each episode of Cold Case Files will feature a single case that has been left unsolved for years. The original series spanned 125 episodes and ran for nearly a decade, and was once the network’s highest-rated series.
