This holiday season, we're in for a true crime treat. 

E! News is unwrapping an exclusive first look at two new Oxygen series—Real Murders of Atlanta and Killer Relationship—both premiering on Sunday, Jan. 16.

In the vein of Real Murders of Orange County, spin-off Atlanta will portray shocking homicide cases that "highlight the boundaries between gentrified Southern dynasties, hip hop hustlers and the flashy nouveau riche of this metropolitan mecca of music, entertainment and tech," per an official series description. 

As the exclusive trailer below teases, "Some folks will kill for a little Southern hospitality." 

The "dark side of the new South" is the breeding ground for horrific crimes, as Real Murders uncovers stranger-than-fiction murder cases. Investigations including deceased judges, racketeering charges and bloody fingerprints that all point to homicide.

The 10-episode season includes spotlight episodes like "Blunt Instrument," when a tech mogul is found bludgeoned to death in his lavish Roswell home and all clues point to a scorned lover as the suspect; "Blood Feud," investigating the execution of up-and-coming rapper Lil' Phat; "A Deadly Union" double-homicide of two Lockheed employees; and "Final Judgment" featuring the death of a prominent judge where every former case they ruled on might be linked to the crime.

Watch the first look at Real Murders of Atlanta below!

Real Murders of Atlanta premieres after the return of Killer Relationship, hosted by former criminal prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, Faith Jenkins. For those looking at twisted love stories, Killer Relationship asks: Is it fate, or fatal?

From love at first sight to pornography addictions to warrants for arrest, the new series is proof that "romance is dead," as Jenkins says in the titillating trailer.

Eight hour-long episodes feature first-hand accounts from victims' family, friends and law enforcement, for cases including "Unholy Terror" where a mother and daughter are killed to protect a religious secret, and "Monster-In-Law" about two people who are set up by their parents...only for the bride to be murdered in broad daylight by her future mother-in-law.  

The eight-episode season also highlights episodes like "If I Can't Have You..." where a seemingly-perfect couple are thrown into a twisted game when a secret marriage comes to light; and "Forbidden Love, Brutal Death," about a polygamous marriage that ends in murder.  

Check out the Killer Relationship teaser above!

Killer Relationship and Real Murders of Atlanta premiere back-to-back starting at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 16 on Oxygen. 

(E! and Oxygen are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
