Killing Fields is
back -- and ET has your first look at season two, which returns to the
Louisiana swamplands to solve the 1997 homicide of former Louisiana State
University student Eugenie Boisfontaine.
While the series -- which is filmed in real time -- didn’t
solve the mystery in its first season, detectives Rodie Sanchez and Aubrey St.
Angelo are as determined as ever to bring justice to Boisfontaine’s family.
But within the sprawling area where Boisfontaine’s body was

technology -- both in fighting crime and behind the camera -- we have a much
larger palette from which to choose, so we’re able to tell fuller, compelling
The show, which is co-executive produced by Fontana and
Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson, will return with seven new episodes
starting Jan. 3, 2017, at 10 p.m. ET.
