Season two of An Unexpected Killer is sure to pull the rug out from under even the savviest of true-crime fans.

Brand new episodes of the Oxygen series kick off Friday, Jan. 15, and it won't be long before viewers are second-guessing everything as they watch captivating interviews with potential suspects and in-depth examinations of crime scenes, following along with experienced homicide investigators who believe they're inches away from solving a case, only to come across something unanticipated. 

Take the season two premiere for example.

In the introductory episode, a successful TV producer and mother of one is found shot dead in her upscale home. Suspicion ends up falling on her soon-to-be-ex-husband, but his airtight alibi leads detectives to question other potential suspects. And just when the tenacious detectives believe they have a break in the case, they're faced with a shocking and unforeseen surprise in a truly twisted investigation.    

Craziest True Crime TV Moments

If that's not enticing enough, true-crime devotees and people simply searching for a new show to watch will almost certainly be convinced to tune in after watching an exclusive season two trailer.

You might find yourself getting goosebumps a number of times while watching the above clip, but they're practically guaranteed upon hearing one professional's chilling warning: "Innocent people can fail polygraphs because they're nervous. Guilty people can pass polygraphs because they're sociopaths."

The exclusive teaser also provides a glimpse at some of the cases to come on this season of An Unexpected Killer, including those that have key players saying everything from "This is nothing I had ever seen before or even heard of before," to "Why the hell did this happen? How did this happen? Who did it?"

We'd like answers to those questions, too!
