Netflix Crime Anthology ‘Criminal’: Everything We Know So Far

Review Ethan / 2022-11-16 03:32:22

Netflix's crime-drama Originals have had an impressive track record. The streaming service has set a high standard with titles such as Mindhunter and Ozark, which is reflected in the quality of its originals. Hoping to match that tier of quality is Netflix’s latest anthology series, Criminal. The Netflix Original will be available on Netflix in a variety of formats, including a trailer, cast information, and upcoming release dates.

Kay Smith and Jim Field have created Criminal, a Netflix crime-drama series. The crime-drama is one of Netflix’s most unique series to date, as the story follows four separate crimes across four separate countries. The claustrophobic elements of the crime-drama will create a sense of fear and anxiety. We can look forward to some amazing moments with Sylvester Groth and David Tennant as our actors.
