Netflix has revealed the trailer and release date for their adaptation of Japanese writer Miyuki Miyabe’s ‘Momohan’, dubbed Copycat Killer.
The Chinese language crime thriller series will premiere globally on Netflix this March 31 and stars Wu Kang-ren as a no-nonsense prosecutor hunting down Taiwan’s first-ever serial killer in ’90s Taipei. The game of cat and mouse evolves into something bigger as the killer turns his notoriety into the subject of national interest as he mocks the idea of law and justice.
In a statement from series co-director Henri Chang shared by Netflix, he said of the series, “We hope to portray more facets of each character and their thoughts and reflections within an intriguing narrative.”
“While the story begins with ‘evil’ as we know it, there is a lot more to reflect on and take away from the series,” he concluded.
