The series follows veteran police detective and private investigator Derrick Levasseur as he doggedly pursues cold cases around the nation, answering the pleas of desperate families asking for help with investigating the unsolved murders of their loved ones. Season two is slated to premiere summer 2019, exclusively on ID.
