It's been 20 years since JonBenet Ramsey's unsolved murder, and now, CBS will re-examine the tragic event in The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey.

The original investigators are back for the six-hour limited series, which will air on three nights, beginning Sunday, Sept. 18 at 8:30 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT, CBS announced at summer Television Critics Association press day.

The Case Of, which reporters got a sneak peek of at TCA, will re-examine crucial evidence using advanced technology and forensics, recreating the crime scene by rebuilding full-scale replicas of key rooms from the Ramsey house, conducting interviews and introducing new theories.

Former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst Laura Richards and retired FBI supervisory special agent and statement analyst Stan Burke are the new investigators brought on to take another look at the case.

Following its two-hour debut on Sept. 18, The Case Of will air on Monday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

The news comes one week after it was revealed that Ramsey's brother, Burke, now 29, will be giving his first interview about his late sister in an exclusive sit-down with Dr. Phil.
