Magical Elves' true-crime series Cold Justice returns to Oxygen next month

Oxygen, the destination for high-quality crime programming, returns with new episodes of its highest-rated series Cold Justice on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The series, from executive producer Dick Wolf and producers Magical Elves, continues to set the bar as the only series that has helped bring about 22 convictions and 56 arrests.  

Working alongside local law enforcement, the groundbreaking investigative series follows prosecutor Kelly Siegler and her rotating team of seasoned detectives Steve Spingola, Tonya Rider and Abbey Abbondandolo as they travel to small towns to dig into unsolved homicide cases that have lingered for years without answers or justice for the victims. Bringing fresh eyes, valuable resources and key experts, Kelly and her team have an unparalleled success rate and one of the most recent arrests can be seen in this upcoming batch of episodes. 

The new episodes kick off with a 30-year-old cold case that Kelly has been chasing her entire career.
