The Dick Wolf-produced true crime series Cold Justice is returning to Oxygen for a new season this summer, and there’s plenty to know about season 6.
The series is one of several unscripted programs produced by Wolf Entertainment, and one of the company’s best known. As the title indicates, it follows a group of law enforcement experts, led by ex-prosecutor Kelly Siegler, as they visit jurisdictions around the country to try and help close the cases that the local authorities haven’t been able to.
Over five seasons so far, the program has resulted in 49 arrests and 21 convictions across the United States.
What’s in store for the new season? Here are all the details that have been released by the network thus far about the 2021 season.
Cold Justice season 6 release date
Oxygen has confirmed via press release that season 6 of Cold Justice is going to premiere Saturday, July 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. (Reruns of the series will also likely continue to air on the cable channel if you need to catch up.)
Cold Justice season 6 cast
Former prosecutor Kelly Siegler returns as the star of the true crime series. The detectives who are assisting Kelly this season are Tonya Rider, Steve Spingola and Abby Abbondandolo.
The press release didn’t mention fellow investigators Aaron Sam and Johnny Bonds, so it seems that they’re no longer with the show. Bonds was mentioned in the last press release in 2020 and Sam hasn’t been listed as a cast member since 2019.
Cold Justice season 6 synopsis
There are synopses available for the first four episodes of the new season. In the season premiere “Holiday Homicide,” Kelly and Abbey head to Stafford, Texas to investigate the cold-blooded killing of a tow truck business owner, Jerry Don Humphrey. Their investigation uncovers a twisted world of alleged abuse, infidelity, and a possible murder-for-hire plot.
That’s followed by “Deadly Premonition,” where Kelly and Steve Spingola try to solve the mysterious murder in Rosenberg, Texas of a doting father beaten and shot to death in his home with his 6-year-old daughter asleep nearby. The key to identifying his killer may lie in the secret audio recordings found in his attic.
In “A Touch of Evidence,” Kelly and Tonya Rider investigate the shocking murder of Leola Jordan a 91-year-old grandmother in Picayune, Mississippi who was stabbed nearly 40 times in her bed. New DNA technology may help identify her killer and reveal a tragic family secret.
Then last but not least, the episode “Unnatural Causes” takes place in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico and has Kelly and Steve Spingola investigate the strange case of a man who appeared to have died from natural causes. But when scans revealed a gunshot wound, his death became a murder investigation. Is it too late to crack the case?
