VERY SCARY PEOPLE, hosted and executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, returns for a new season on its new home Investigation Discovery, the leading true crime network. Through in-depth interviews and incredible archival footage, each two-hour episode of VERY SCARY PEOPLE will offer unprecedented and comprehensive insight into not only the twisted crimes of these individuals, but a glimpse into their background, possible motives, psyche and the investigations that subsequently brought them all to justice. Featuring local authorities and journalists who investigated and covered the cases, as well as interviews with those close to both the victims and the killers, each episode of VERY SCARY PEOPLE will offer an expansive look into some of society's most evil minds.

· Both parts of "The Twin" Premieres Sunday, April 30 starting at 9/8c

When a 19-year-old college co-ed is snatched off the grounds of her Indiana University campus, all police find is a pile of her discarded and bloody clothing. A few months later, the decomposed body of a missing 15-year-old girl is found callously dumped in an Indiana cornfield. Then came alarming reports of terrified young girls narrowly escaping a creepy man trying to lure them into his van. Who is to blame for these vicious attacks, and why? Suddenly, investigators close in on a promising suspect... Larry Hall is brought in for questioning and admits to everything, case closed. But within days, Hall recants his confession saying the details of his signed statement were all just a bunch of made-up dreams. Is he a false confessor or a serial killer? And if he was truly guilty, did Larry's Identical twin brother, Gary, have a hand in it?

· Both parts of "The Time Square Killer" Premieres Sunday, May 7 starting at 9/8c

In 1979, the NYFD received a report of smoke pouring out of a room in a hotel in New York's Times Square. When firefighters entered, they thought they saw a pair of mannequins on the beds. It was only when the haze cleared that they realized that the person who set the blaze had beheaded two sex workers. The city's tabloids dubbed the perpetrator the "Times Square Killer." But the catchy label was not entirely accurate. For years, the murderer had been targeting women close to his home in the New Jersey suburbs. For a long time, though, police in both states were unaware that they had a serial killer on their hands. Indeed, the Times Square Killer's strongest asset was his ability to blend in, commuting back and forth from the suburbs to his job at a prestigious insurance firm. This is the tale of a perplexing double life, a case that seemed unsolvable and a reign of terror that impacted both the leafy lanes of New Jersey and New York's red-light district.

MEAN GIRL MURDERS

New Episodes Premiere Mondays at 9/8c

These real-life mysteries explore the dark side of female connections and rivalry. Who are the queen bees and the wannabes -- and who thrives on jealousy and gossip? Sometimes these dynamics lead to shocking acts of psychological and physical violence.

Minnesota teen mom Cheyenne Clough is over the hallway dramas and petty jealousies of high school. She finds acceptance in a new crowd by moving in with two gals and their boyfriends. But after Cheyenne gets her own beau, distrust leads to death.

STILL A MYSTERY

New Episodes Premiere Thursdays at 9/8c

· Suffer the Children Premieres Thursday, April 27 at 9/8c

Oakley Carlson is turning five, and no one can find her. Her foster parents are worried sick while biological parents can't account for where she's gone. And a young mother leaves a bar with a man she doesn't know -- and ends up dead.

· Secrets in the DNA Premieres Thursday, May 4 at 9/8c

A truck driver finds an unconscious woman on a Missouri highway. Police determine the suspect attacked her elsewhere and placed her on the road. Then, an unknown killer bludgeons a mom and her two daughters at home while her son and nephew cling to life.

discovery+/ID CONCURRENT TRUE CRIME PREMIERES

UNDERCOVER UNDERAGE

New Episodes Premiere Mondays at 9/8c on ID and Available to Stream on discovery+

Every day, countless minors are exploited, groomed and abused in person and online. Enter Roo Powell and her team at the nonprofit SOSA (Safe from Online Sex Abuse), who work in tandem with law enforcement to apprehend child predators by becoming the targets. After a successful first season resulting in four convictions of sexual predators, ID shows SOSA multiplying that number in Season 2 of UNDERCOVER UNDERAGE as the SOSA team relocates to embed with the sheriff's office in Canadian County, Oklahoma and deploys three new underage decoys. As the team launches the fictitious online accounts for a 15, 14 and even a 12-year-old persona, it's a race against the clock to identify the ACMs (adults contacting minors) and build a case against the alleged predators to enable law enforcement to make an arrest before the perpetrators can victimize other children.

· Reasons To Be Terrified Premieres Monday, May 1 at 9/8c

Roo Powell leads her team in launching two new decoys in Oklahoma City. Within minutes they are met with an influx of messages from adults contacting minors, or ACMS. "The Handyman" quickly tries to lure 12-year-old decoy Abby into an aggressively sexual relationship. While the team pieces clues together to discover his identity, 14-year-old decoy Mackenzie is approached by "The Soldier," an active United States military member. But as one investigation closes -- the team makes a potentially devastating mistake.

EVIL LIVES HERE: SHADOWS OF DEATH

New Episodes Premiere Tuesdays at 9/8c on ID and Available to Stream on discovery+

Evil casts a shadow. That shadow spreads outward for years, even decades, after a crime. It consumes everyone in its path, pulling them into darkness. Can they find the light? EVIL LIVES HERE: SHADOWS OF DEATH explores the endless reach of evil, a reach that extends long after the act of evil itself. This original series highlights the struggle to survive as innocent people find themselves caught in the wake of death and evil.

· The Wicked Pair Premieres Tuesday, April 25 at 9/8c

When five people vanish in 1993, cops have zero leads. Seven years later, someone connected to the case starts to talk.
