Highly-Anticipated Crime Thriller "Copycat Killer" to Premiere on Netflix on March 31

Adapted from a popular crime mystery novel by Japanese writer Miyuki Miyabe, "Copycat Killer" is set in ’90s Taipei and tells the story of the first-ever serial murder case in Taiwan. The Chinese-language crime thriller will be released on March 31, 2023 globally and exclusively on Netflix. 

Taking advantage of the widespread interest of his killings, a media-savvy serial killer turns the case into a national spectacle, fueling gossip and notoriety. A no-nonsense prosecutor (Wu Kang-ren) vows to solve the case only to realize that things are not what they seem. Meanwhile the killer repeatedly makes a mockery of the law as he seeks to destroy peace and order in the process.

Other members of the star-studded cast includes Alice Ko, Tuo Tsung-hua, Yao Chun-yao, Fandy Fan, Cammy Chiang, and Hsia Teng-Hung.

To produce a crime and mystery thriller of such intricacy, the production team spent over three years on preparation, adaptation, filming, and post-production. “It’s a pleasure to finally bring what we have worked on for so long to the audience,” said co-director Chang Jung-chi, who won the Taipei Film Awards Best Director for We Are Champions. “Beneath the thriller and detective story lies a story of how humanity struggles between good and evil.” While most crime stories focus on details of the cases, Copycat Killer casts a wider net. “We hope to portray more facets of each character and their thoughts and reflections within an intriguing narrative,” explained co-director Henri Chang, who earned six Golden Bell nominations for Hate the Sin, Love the Sinner. “While the story begins with ‘evil’ as we know it, there is a lot more to reflect on and take away from the series.”
