Let's take a look at what we know about the true-crime miniseries.
What is The Staircase about?
The Staircase follows Michael Peterson's murder trial after his wife, Kathleen, was found in a pool of blood at the bottom of a staircase in the couple's home in 2001.
Peterson was originally found guilty in 2003 but was granted a new trial after misconduct was revealed.
In 2017, he took an Alford plea, which is a guilty plea in criminal court but the defendant asserts innocence.
He has since spoken out about a theory involving an owl killing his wife.
