Netflix’s ‘Who Killed Sara?’ is the murder-mystery thriller you should add to your binge-list this weekend

Who Killed Sara?

Recently, we've been treated to an impressive roster of new films and TV series to get us excited for the cool months to come. Just yesterday, streaming platform Netflix released its highly-anticipated list of April releases; and the day before, we got our first look at Mila Kunis' heartwrenching film, Four Good Days. Although the past year left us devoid of several cinematic masterpieces, it looks like it was worth the wait. The latest watch on our list; the Spanish drama, Who Killed Sara?

The series is relatively new to Netflix, but is already giving us big Behind Her Eyes and The Undoing vibes. Which, we're totally here for. With that in mind, Who Killed Sara?, is not for those who are looking for a summer romance; (though, in this case, might we suggest Boy Meets Boy)? No; this thriller will have you glued to the edge of your seat episode after episode.

The murder-mystery is written by Chilean screenwriter Jose Ignacio "Chascas" Valenzuela. Created in Mexico, the Spanish-language series follows protagonist, Alex Guzmán, who has spent the last 18 years wrongfully behind bars for the death of his sister. Now, that he has served his time, he's prepared to seek revenge.

If Who Killed Sara? is the type of thriller you liked to indulge in on a weekday before bed, we have every detail you need to know about the nail-bitting series below.

What is the plotline of Who Killed Sara?

As mentioned above, Who Killed Sara? follows the story of main character Alex Guzmán, on his quest for the truth. After being framed for his sister, Sara's, murder 18 years ago, he actions his plan to bring who he believes is the real murder – Rodolfo Lazcano – to justice.

Like with most murder-mysteries, things are not always what they seem. Alex comes to realise this when he enters into a relationship with the youngest Lazcano daughter, Elisa. What ensues is a deep-dive into the Lazcano family's darkest secrets; as well as clues that ultimately lead Alex to uncover who actually killed his sister.
