True crime fans rejoice! Forensic Files will air 16 new, half-hour episodes starting in February 2020 on HLN.
For nearly a decade, HLN has shown repeats of “Forensic Files,” a catch-the-bad-guy documentary series. The series is so popular that the network airs 65 to 70 hours of the reruns each week.
"Forensic Files” originally debuted as a series called “Medical Detectives” in 1996 on the cable network TLC, now part of Discovery Inc. It would eventually move to CourtTV and take on the “Forensic Files” moniker. The show proved so durable that even NBC aired a few episodes of it for summer viewers. It stopped airing new episodes in 2011.
The narrator of the series unfortunately passed away in 2016, so there will be a new narrator.
