Audiences were shocked when Surviving R Kelly aired in the UK over February.

The singer and songwriter has had multiple sexual abuse and misconduct allegations made against him, dating back to the 1990s.

The three-part docu-series (double episodes) investigated everything over the past 29 years, detailing the shocking allegations made against the R’n’B singer through interviews and case studies.

And, now, there is another twist to the tale with a follow-up series!
