The new series will once again be presented by Dermot Murnaghan as the show uncovers the truth behind crimes that have shocked the nation, as told by friends, family, and the detectives charged with bringing the perpetrators to justice.

Dermot Murnaghan said: "I’m delighted to be part of this latest series of Crimes That Shook Britain – a format that always remembers, first and foremost, to give the victims a voice through the testimony of their loved ones. What attracts me most to the programme is the quality and sensitivity of the storytelling...

"The producers – Title Role – are the best in the business regarding duty of care and narrative. This series examines some of the most high-profile cases of recent times – such as the murders of Brianna Ghey and Elle Edwards – many of which I reported on at the time as a news anchor. The producers have gained exclusive access to some of the investigating officers in the cases and friends and family members of the victims appearing on camera for the first time."

Dan Korn, VP of Programming at A+E Networks EMEA, said: "We’re delighted to have Dermot and Crimes That Shook back for a ninth season. It’s brilliantly produced by Title Role and unflinching in its honesty and commitment to telling the story behind the headlines through the eyes of those most intimately affected."

Helen Tonge from Title Role said: "We are incredibly proud of Crimes That Shook Britain and what it stands for. For nine series now, we have been leading the way in telling extremely sensitive stories with integrity and respect. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dermot and the team at C+I again."

Transmission details will be announced in due course.
