A&E has revived true-crime series Cold Case Files for a 10-episode season, to premiere February 27 at 9PM, with actor Danny Glover serving as narrator, Variety reports:
Using dramatic reenactments and first-person accounts, each episode of “Cold Case Files” explores a single criminal case that has gone years without being solved. The hour-long series brings in the accounts and insights of victims’ loved ones and detectives who have studied the case.
Said Elaine Frontain Bryant, A&E executive vice president and head of programming:
“’Cold Case Files’ remains one of A&E’s most beloved and successful series of all time. 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.”
The original iteration of Cold Case Files spanned 125 episodes on A&E from 1998, surviving nearly 10 years.
