Netflix has just announced a release date for the Madeleine McCann documentary, entitled "The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann" and good news we don't have long to wait. The documentary which takes a "detailed look" at the Madeleine McCann case will be released tomorrow just in time for the long weekend.
Watch the chilling trailer for the world's most famous missing child case:
Gerry and Kate McCann, the parents of Madeleine refused to be involved in the documentary citing the reason that the case of their missing daughter is still ongoing. Earlier this week they spoke out to condemn the series stating that it could potentially “hinder” the ongoing police investigation.
The disappearance happened in Portugal in 2007 while the McCanns were on holidays with friends. This missing child case shook the world and has still so many questions left unanswered. This eight-part documentary series is directed by Chris Smith, the same director that bought the most talked about documentary this year Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened. The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann documentary goes beyond the headlines of the case which quickly became a media frenzy and explores possible theories.
According to Netflix, the documentary will have "never-before-heard testimonies from those at the heart of the story including friends of the McCann family, investigators working the case and from those who became the subject of media speculation and rumour."
As you can see from the chilling trailer this case is deeply unsettlingly and disturbing. Madeleine was only three years old when she went missing and it is upsetting for viewers to think of the abduction of a child so young. Keep this in mind when sitting down to watch it and as with all true crime documentaries, do not watch alone.
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann will be released on Netflix tomorrow March 15th.
