Don't miss these great crime shows to kick off 2024 in style

New Year’s Day has a lot of traditions, from recovering from parties to watching football. But some folks may want to use the day to binge on some TV shows and thankfully, streamers have scores of options, both new and old to check out. And there are some great crime shows.

Some are brand-new entries with terrific stars and plotlines, while others are shows that aired years back but may be overlooked. They are short runs and could be binged in the long New Year’s break, so here are six shows to check out for New Year’s Day and start 2024 on a fun note. 

Fool Me Once

Premiering right on New Year’s Day, this new Netflix British series, Fool Me Once, is based on a novel by Harlan Coben (Shelter). Michelle Keegan is a woman whose perfect life comes apart when her husband is murdered. Just as she’s about to move on with her life, she sees him appearing very much alive on a nanny cam. 

Her search for answers leads to a clash with her mother-in-law (Joanna Lumley) and the discovery of a dark criminal conspiracy. It looks to be a thriller of a series available in a nice Netflix binge to mark another successful Coben adaptation.

Fool Me Once premieres on Netflix on Monday, Jan. 1.

Dr. Death

The Peacock series, Dr. Death, returns for another season with another horrifyingly true medical thriller. Mandy Moore is Benita, a reporter who falls for Paolo Macchiarini, a handsome and daring surgeon performing miracle procedures. Their romance grows, only for Benita to realize Paolo has been lying about almost everything in his life. At the same time, some doctors discover Paolo’s “miracle” surgeries are causing more harm than good.

The show is gripping, balancing Benita’s discovery she’s fallen for a dangerous con man with the doctors fighting a system determined to protect a killer. The fact it’s all based on a true story makes it more striking as the eight-episode binge is set to rock you hard. 

Dr. Death Season 2 is now streaming on Peacock.
