Production has begun on the second season of a crime series that was a breakout hit in its freshman run on Investigation Discovery. The channel announced today that it has picked up season two of “Breaking Homicide,” which will premiere in summer 2019.
“The series follows veteran police detective and private investigator Derrick Levasseur as he doggedly pursues cold cases around the nation, answering the pleas of desperate families asking for help with investigating the unsolved murders of their loved ones,” ID says in today’s announcement.
The announcement adds: “Each episode of ‘Breaking Homicide’ provides fresh perspective and new hope to those who never gave up on the search for justice. Chasing down new clues and reviewing old ones, Levasseur re-examines each case with fresh eyes and the benefit of more advanced technology, applying his unique experiences as an undercover detective to meticulously dissect each case from top to bottom. Levasseur scours the locations of each crime for new information, sitting down with the original investigators and friends and families of the victims to try to uncover new clues that could solve these cases once and for all.”
The production team is currently reviewing cases to be investigated during the next season.
