Attention, true crime fans.
Four years on from its release, crime series Catching Milat is finally coming to Stan.
The two-part miniseries, which originally aired on Channel 7 in 2015, is coming to Stan on April 18.
Starring Australian actor Mal Kennard as serial killer Ivan Milat, the telemovie is based on book Sins of The Brother as well as the real-life investigation into the murders of seven backpackers that took place between 1989 and 1993.

The miniseries was met with controversy when it was first released in 2015.
At the time, family members of one of Milat’s victims launched a Change.org petition to ban the telemovie from being screened.
The petition explained that family members of victims should not have to relive the pain of Australia’s “most horrendous” murders.
“He deserves punishment and condemnation not celebration and fame. He deserves to remain forgotten in jail for the rest of his days, alone and unimportant,” the petition read.
Superintendent Clive Small, who led the investigation, also claimed the series was “pure fiction from start to finish”.
Earlier this month, it was announced that the notorious backpacker murderer would be at the centre of true crime podcast Casefile’s next five-part special.
