“I’m not an animal, I’m not crazy, I don’t have a split personality,” the infamous serial killer said within the trailer.

“I mean I’m just a normal individual.”

The documentary series isn’t the only Ted Bundy content being released this year.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a feature film starring Zac Efron, is also due to be released on May 3.

Both the documentary series and the film were directed by Emmy award winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger.

During the 1970s, Bundy assaulted and murdered numerous young women.

Many of the serial killer's victims regarded him as incredibly charismatic and handsome. It was these traits that led Bundy to escape suspicion for years.

It's believed Bundy killed at least 30 victims across at least seven US states, however the true number of Bundy's victims is still unknown.

During Bundy's trial, he was able to escape twice from custody.

In the first instance, Bundy was free for six days. But in the second escape, Bundy sexually assaulted and murdered Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, assaulted Kathy Kleiner and Karen Chandler, and murdered a 12-year-old girl.

Finally, after being caught once again, Bundy was convicted and placed on death row in Florida.

During his time in prison, he conceived a child with Carol Ann Boone, who he married while on trial.

He was eventually executed by electric chair in 1989.

Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes will be released on Netflix on January 24th.

The release date coincides with the 30th anniversary of his execution.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile will be released on Netflix on May 3rd.
