I Am A Killer Season 3 Plot and Episodes

This year saw the release of an I Am a Killer book written by Transistor founder Danny Tipping, who also executive produces the show with Ned Parker. This crime documentary series provides insight into the experiences of prisoners who are on death row and offers never-before-seen material with unprecedented access to prisons around the United States. Each episode focuses on a different death row inmate who has been found guilty of a deadly crime.

The murderers describe the circumstances leading up to their crime and discuss their reasons and current perceptions of their actions. Different points of view and the prisoners’ accounts of how split-second choices altered their lives challenge viewers’ perspectives.

According to Deadline, the official plot description of the third season states that the true-crime series will follow a similar plot structure as “I Am a Killer” a show that interviews murderers on Death Row or those who are spending the majority of their lives behind bars. Sky Studios-backed Transistor Films has gained access to maximum-security prisons across the U.S. for Season 3, exploring the crimes in question through exclusive interviews with the men and women who committed them. 

Coupled with contributor interviews, the subjects will again recount the events that led them to murder, exploring their motivations and, ultimately, how they now view their crimes after time spent in some of the toughest prisons in the U.S. The six-parter will launch in late August. We’d also like to point out that, as of July 21, 2022, the exact titles for the episodes cannot be confirmed. As the network will publish those when the episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued in the coming weeks.
