There's nothing like a good Netflix binge. But when you want to feel better about spending the day in front of the screen, a documentary can be the perfect compromise. Netflix always brings it with the true crime content - but it seems their latest drop might be their best yet.

The true-crime documentary series in question is about former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez - the convicted murderer who completed suicide in prison in 2017. And now his former fiancee has spoken out in the midst of the media frenzy which followed the show's release.

There's nothing more relaxing than a new TV show.

Settling in for a good, old-fashioned binge is what dreams are made of.

And Netflix truly makes it possible.

Not only do they make streaming on-demand easy, but they're constantly dropping great new content for us to enjoy.

But if you want to watch TV guilt-free?

Well, you can always opt for a documentary, so you can learn while you binge.

And if you love documentaries...

Then Netflix has you covered. The area where they truly excel, though? It has to be true crime.

They've offered us some amazing options over the years.

Making a Murderer, The Keepers, Amanda Knox, Killer Ratings ... the list is basically endless.

But the latest Netflix true crime launch?

Well, it is perhaps the most exciting (and darkest) yet.

It focuses on NFL star Aaron Hernandez.

He played as a tight end for the New England Patriots - but below the surface was hidden darkness.

Beginning in childhood, it then follows the athlete's impressive career as he rose to stardom.

But all was not as it seemed.

As the tagline reads, "No one has allegedly murdered two people and then played an entire season as a professional athlete." Wtf?

There's an overriding question.

How did a man who seemed to have it all end up convicted of murder?

Hernandez was first accused back in 2012.

He was actually tried for the double murder of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado at the time, but was later acquitted - and accepted back into the NFL.

But tragedy soon struck again.

And in 2013, Hernande's brother Odin Lloyd was murdered.

And this time, Hernandez was found guilty.

He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

But that wasn't the end of this creepy story.

On April 19th of 2017, Hernandez was found dead by suicide in his cell, having hanged himself with a bedsheet.

And Netflix follows the whole story.

With exclusive interviews from those who knew Hernandez, they try to unpack the dark and dangerous hidden side of his personality.

And needless to say?

People are very excited about the horrifying 3-part miniseries.

The story is incredibly intriguing.

With so many twists, turns, and tragedies, you'll struggle to believe it's real.

And now it's here!

The doc dropped on January 15th, and many are already singing it's praises.

Although not everyone is excited.

Some are concerned about the way Netflix is drawing attention to this sensitive case.

Here's the full trailer.

Since the launch, attention on the case is at an all-time high.

And now Hernandez's former fiancee has spoken out.

Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez was with Aaron for several years before his legal troubles began.

They even share a daughter together.

Avielle Hernandez was born in 2012, the same year the 2 became engaged.

Now Shayanna has spoken out following the documentary's release.

She first posted this inspirational quote, with the caption "Give me the strength."

And that wasn't all.

Shayanna then posted a more direct response, captioning her second post "#stayhumble."

Shayanna has also recorded an interview with Dr. Phil.

Back in 2017, she spoke out about her side of the story - but it seems as though she still has more to say on the matter. If you enjoyed Killer Inside, scroll on. We've got all the details on another incredible (and terrifying) documentary.
