OUTRAGEOUS FINAL WISHES takes a look at those thinking outside the box and are pushing the limits of what they want done to their bodies and possessions.

I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT

Season 4 Premieres Thursday, October 6 at 10 PM ET

For these perpetrators, the stories may be different, but the motives are always the same - to stay out of prison and live life on the lam. The criminals profiled in I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT evaded justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid capture. Viewers learn how law enforcement uses all means necessary to capture these fugitives. Additionally, each episode features an interview from prison with these slick culprits, who spill where they found shelter, how they changed their identities and how they almost got away with it.

COLD BLOOD returns to the crime scene so that viewers can examine all the evidence for themselves. Combining the thrill of mystery with the visceral experience of true crime drama, this series presents competing versions of what may have happened, and re-enacts the events from different perspectives as new evidence comes to light. Each episode tells the story of one homicide investigation that revolves around the forensic investigation of the crime scene, and follows the clues wherever they may lead.

DISAPPEARED

Season 4 Premieres Monday, October 24 at 10 PM ET

When someone goes missing, every moment is an emotional roller coaster for the loved ones left behind, and every second and every single clue counts in the search for the missing. Each episode of DISAPPEARED begins at the time immediately before the individual vanished, and chronicles the search for clues hidden beneath seemingly everyday behavior that may indicate what happened to the individual. While some of the resolutions are heart-warming and others tragic, many cases remain open to this day and continue to be a source of unbearable frustration for family members and friends. For the open cases that have gone cold, DISAPPEARED asks viewers to share any fresh leads in hopes of deciphering what truly happened to the missing and whether foul play may have been involved, or if the person simply chose to leave on their own.
