If you're a fan of true crime, you'll almost certainly want to check out Netflix's new show World's Most Wanted when it airs on 5 August. Have a look at the trailer if you want to see what's in store:

The docuseries tells the tales of five of the world's most sought after criminals who remain at large, as well as detailing the crimes they are accused of committing, and how they've managed to evade capture, sometimes for years.

World's Most Wanted will touch down onto the streaming platform on 5 August. That's next Wednesday, if - like most of us - you're sometimes struggling to remember what day it is at the minute.

The show will use interviews from law enforcement agencies and officers who will outline the steps being taken to bring these wanted men and women to justice.

One episode will detail the case of Samantha Lewthwaite, who is also known as 'The White Widow' because of her marriage to a 7/7 bomber and stands accused of causing the death of 400 people through her involvement with terrorist militant group al Shabaab.


Another will tell the tale of Félicien Kabuga, a businessman from Rwanda who is thought to have been involved in the genocide in his homeland.

Then there's Sicilian gangster and Mafia don Matteo Messina Denaro, who has been in hiding since 1993 and wanted in connection with the murders of 50 people.

Apparently, he's still in the drug trade to this very day, making this particular episode must-see viewing for anyone who is currently ensconced in the world of Netflix's Fear City.

Then, there's Mexican suspected drug lord and Sinaloa cartel leader Mayo Zambada. He's still out there somewhere, and the FBI have offered a $5 million reward for anyone providing information that leads to his eventual arrest.

Lastly, but certainly not least, is Semion Mogilevich.


He's a Ukrainian-born, Russian organised crime kingpin who has become known among agencies from the USA and the European Union as 'the boss of bosses'.

Mogilevich stands accused by the FBI of 'weapons trafficking, contract murders, extortion, drug trafficking, and prostitution on an international scale'.

Strangely enough, the people involved in trying to catch him know exactly where he is. He's living free as a bird in Moscow, despite the many warrants that have been issued for his arrest.

It's been said in the past that he has a 'good relationship' with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

You can meet the whole gang on 5 August on Netflix.
