For the class of '82 in the charming town of Mt. Pine, high school wasn't just hell... it was murder. From 1979 to 1982, this tight-knit community was rocked by multiple murders involving students, graduates and other locals. Some claimed it was a streak of bad luck, others said the town was cursed. Forty years later, host Nancy Clark reinvestigates the cases, interviewing friends, police officers, neighbors and more as she tries to get to the bottom of what happened to her classmates and their sleepy little town where the murders suddenly seem to be happening all over again. Inspired by a true story, The Murder Years combines the high school vibes of Pretty in Pink and the creepy nostalgia of Stranger Things, juxtaposing a look back at Eighties teen culture with gruesome murders and an eerie mystery that’s still unfolding.
