"For the past two seasons, we have given viewers an inside look into the investigation of criminals, with an emphasis on the psychological component of confessions," Wolf said in a statement. "Our third season will be even better, and will continue to give crime buffs insight into a side of police work that has never been examined before."

Criminal Confessions gives viewers an inside look into actual police interrogations from around the country. Each standalone episode goes into detail on the strategies and tactics law enforcement uses to get the truth out of their suspects, "resulting in jaw-dropping confessions that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats," Oxygen teased.

Criminal Confessions is produced by Wolf Reality and Shed Media with Wolf, Tom Thayer, Pam Healey, Dan Peirson, Adam Kassen and Josh Bingham serving as executive producers.

Criminal Confessions season three premieres Saturday, Dec. 7 at 6 p.m. on Oxygen.
