Hey, y’all. August is upon us, and you know what that means – it’s time to hunker down with some popcorn and dive into the latest world of whodunits, hard-boiled investigations, and spine-chilling tales that only reality can offer. Yes, I’m talking about new true crime documentaries August 2023 has to offer.
TBH, the roster for August 2023 is a bit leaner than usual. Maybe it’s the summer sun, or maybe our favorite filmmakers are just taking a well-deserved vacation. But don’t you worry. Even though we’ve got a somewhat shorter list this time around, I promise you it’s packed with intrigue, suspense, and all the mystery you crave.
As I stumble upon new documentaries that are worth your time, I’ll be updating this post faster than you can say “unsolved mysteries.” So keep this page bookmarked and make sure you swing by often. There might be just a few more tantalizing tales ready to be discovered before August is out.
So, grab your detective hat, maybe a magnifying glass (or just your remote), and let’s dive into the mysteries and stories that August 2023 has to offer. Shall we?
