Limited TV series When They See Us is based on the the Central Park Five - a group of teens who were wrongly accused of the assault and rape of a woman in New York in 1989.

You can watch the trailer below:

Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise - all aged between 14 and 16 at the time of the ordeal - served time in prison for the incident until 2002 DNA evidence found serial rapist Matias Reyes guilty.

Reyes then confessed to the assault and the five young men were released from prison.

When They See Us aired in 2019, with the series still being widely spoken about now.

The show is made up of four episodes and boasts a score of 8.8/10 on IMDb.

It's fourth and final episode alone has been rated an impressive 9.5/10, while the other three also rank highly.

And it's not just viewers who loved it, the series also received critical acclaim - including a staggering 78 nominations for various awards.

It won 30 awards, including two Primetime Emmys.

While the actors who portrayed the Central Park Five were relatively new and upcoming actors, When They See Us does boast some more well-known faces, including John Leguizamo, Niecy Nash, Felicity Huffman and the late Michael Kenneth Williams.

Tragically Kenneth Williams died two years after the series' release from an accidental drug overdose.

The drug dealer who supplied the actor with the drugs was later sentenced to 10 years in prison.
