The eerie trailer, which focuses on uncovering the truth about a slew of uncanny rape cases, has us at the edge of our seats. So it's no surprise that fans are wondering if Unbelievable is based on a true story. Scroll down for everything we know!

Is Unbelievable a true story?

Yes, the limited miniseries is, in fact, based on real events. The Netflix description for the show reads: "After a young woman is accused of lying about rape, two female detectives investigate a spate of eerily similar attacks. Inspired by true events."

The show actually almost mimics the iconic Pulitzer-winning article An Unbelievable Story of Rape, which was published by ProPublica and the Marshall Project in 2015 and written by T. Christian Miller and Kem Armstrong.
