It’s the case that has gripped a nation for almost 12 years now.

Everyone is no doubt familiar with the disappearance of the then-three-year-old, Madeleine McCann, who went missing on a trip to Portugal with her parents Gerry and Kate.

For a while we’ve known that Netflix have picked up a docu-series chronicling the case through interviews with key investigators and those closest to the McCanns.

However, the release has been continually delayed, reportedly due to key personnel in the investigation not wanting to appear on camera. But now, it’s been revealed that the documentary will hit the streaming service tomorrow (March 15th) and with that the first trailer has dropped.

Check it out below:

Wow, it looks absolutely fascinating.

I’m generally not into this kind of stuff but this looks exceptional.

The eight-parter has caused controversy, though, especially with the McCanns who wanted ‘no part of it’.

In fact, Gerry and Kate have slammed it, saying in a statement:

“We are aware that Netflix are planning to screen a documentary in March 2019 about Madeleine’s disappearance.

“The production company told us that they were making the documentary and asked us to participate.

“We did not see – and still do not see – how this programme will help the search for Madeleine and, particularly given there is an active police investigation, it could potentially hinder it.

“Consequently, our views and preferences are not reflected in the programme.

“We will not be making any further statements or giving interviews regarding this programme.”

Friday, guys, Friday.

You don’t want to miss this one.
