Based on Michelle McNamara’s recent true crime classic I’ll be Gone in the Dark, HBO ordered a docuseries on the Golden State Killer.
When it comes to the true crime genre, attention is a funny thing. Often times, paying too much attention to a serial killer’s sordid crimes can come across as tasteless and disrespectful to the victims. However, not paying enough attention can mean that an uncaptured serial criminal can continue to operate in darkness and anonymity.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark is the latest docuseries from HBO. It will catalog a case that falls into the latter category.
The six episodes of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark will tell the story of the serial rapist and murderer known as the Golden State Killer a.k.an East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker (EARONS).It is based on a book of the same name by true-crime writer Michelle McNamara. The show comes from documentarian Liz Garbus( Ghosts of Abu Ghraib).
When’s it Releasing?
On Sunday, June 28 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO, the first episode of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark will be released. Also, it will be made available for streaming on HBO Max, HBO Go. Each subsequent Sunday, new episodes will air.

Episode 1: “Murder Habit”
Debut date: SUNDAY, JUNE 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Author of True Crime Diary, Writer Michelle McNamara’s blog about unsolved crimes, finds a new obsession in the “East Area Rapist” (EAR), who terrorized California in the 1970s and ‘80s, responsible for 50 home-invasion rapes and 12 murders. The EAR, whose true identity is still unknown, would also come to be known as the “Original Night Stalker” and, as Michelle dubs him, the “Golden State Killer.” Delving into the world of online chat rooms and crime blogs, she ends up becoming immersed in the graphic details of the Golden State Killer case, connecting with like-minded sleuths, trading facts, photos, and leads. After pitching a story to Los Angeles Magazine, she hits the ground running, interviewing several EAR survivors and retired detectives who worked the case. Today, Michelle’s husband, actor Patton Oswalt, friends, and fellow citizen detectives reflect on her intoxicating talent – which McNamara calls an “addiction” – for putting together clues and bringing unsolved true crime stories to life.
Directed by Liz Garbus.
