-- Season Two Premieres Monday, November 6 at 10/9c, Only on ID -

(Silver Spring, Md., October 16, 2017) - America's most-watched true crime network, Investigation Discovery (ID), and Time Inc. Productions, the award-winning television group of multi-platform consumer media company Time Inc., announced today the return of their break-out hit series, PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES. Drawing from the original reporting of PEOPLE's award-winning true crime editorial team, the second season of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES features 12 all-new, compelling stories of ordinary people thrust into the spotlight following notorious crimes. Through the lens of PEOPLE's trusted journalists, each hour-long episode takes viewers to the heart of the crime and is interlaced with archival footage, dramatic recreations and emotional interviews with those closest to the cases. Season two of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES debuts Monday, November 6 at 10/9c, only on ID.

"We at ID are delighted to partner once again with some of the best people in true crime journalism today," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "The unique combination of PEOPLE's expert investigative reporting and ID's unparalleled storytelling makes this hit series especially compelling for our viewers and, accordingly, we are particularly thrilled to bring a new season of these emotional and, indeed, intriguing stories to our air."

"PEOPLE's true-crime coverage is an enormously popular franchise for us on every platform," said Jess Cagle, Editor in Chief, PEOPLE. "The brilliant storytellers at ID are the perfect partners to bring it to TV."

With exclusive interviews, new facts and emotional firsthand accounts by those closest to the investigation, each one-hour episode of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES takes viewers to the epicenter of the crime, as PEOPLE's renowned journalists divulge the shocking twists and surprising facts they learned while doggedly investigating each case.

In the season premiere episode, PEOPLE's editor-in-chief Jess Cagle and senior writer Christine Pelisek delve into the iconic Golden State Killer case. Originally suspected to be two separate criminals -- The East Area Rapist and The Original Nightstalker -- this violent predator began terrorizing Californians in the late 1970s, attacking and killing innocent people at home as they slept. His victims shared little in common, and his deadly escapades haunted the Golden State for nearly a decade. Investigators believe the Golden State Killer is responsible for 12 killings and more than 45 assaults in California spanning 1978 to 1986; the perpetrator remains at large.

Additional episodes of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES premiering in November are as follows:

Lost in the Woods (wt) - premieres Monday, November 13 at 10/9c

Two-year-old DeOrr Kunz was on a camping trip with his parents, Deorr Sr. and Jessica Mitchell, his great-grandfather, Robert Walton, and Walton's friend, Isaac Reinwand, when he vanished at the campsite. A three-day search ensued as the family and emergency responders scoured the woods for clues about the boy's whereabouts, yet there were no signs of DeOrr. After six months of investigating the suspicious disappearance, investigators turn their suspicions against the family. Do they know more than they're letting on, or was this really a tragic accident?

Mystery in the Desert (wt) - premieres Monday, November 20 at 10/9c

In Fallbrook, California, Joey and Summer McStay and their two young boys suddenly disappear without a trace. With little to go on, the San Diego Sheriff's Department believes the family of four may have fled the country and moved to Mexico. But with no reason to up and leave, loved ones continue searching and come up with a list of suspects ranging from ex-lovers to business partners. It isn't until years later when an unlikely source discovers a clue that reveals a murder, over a hundred miles away from the McStay home.

Held Hostage in Connecticut (wt) - premieres Monday, November 27 at 10/9c

The morning of July 23, 2007, 9-1-1 calls come in from all over town that a family of four is being held hostage in their home, in the quiet community of Cheshire, Connecticut. Neighbors are shocked when they discover police surrounding the home of beloved Doctor William Petit Jr., his wife Jennifer, and their two daughters, Michaela and Hayley. Every second counts in a hostage situation. Will police react in time to save the lives of the innocent family trapped inside their own home?
