Eight-part mini-series "Under The Bridge" is based on the real-life true crime book of the same name by the late Toronto writer Rebecca Godfrey (played here by Riley Keough) about the murder of 14 year old Reena Virk (Vritika Gupta) in 1997.

In the dramatization, the author teams up with Cam Bentland (Lily Gladstone), a police officer on Vancouver Island, to investigate the crime that hit the headlines when the chief suspects were revealed to be a group of teenage girls subsequently known as the "Shoreline Six". 

More than just a horrific and senseless taking of life, the details of the case revealed much about issues concerning class, race and religion – Virk’s family were Jehovah’s Witnesses within a predominantly Sikh South Asian community.

It also examines, by bringing the author into the story, the sensationalism that often accompanies true crime journalism and the experience of Reena’s family at the hands of the media.

Despite being about a crime that happened in Canada and a series that was filmed in Canada, "Under The Bridge" hit Hulu in the U.S. several weeks before its arrival on Disney+ in Canada.

The first two episodes will premiere in the Great White North soon though, arriving on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. 

Any U.S. citizens currently there on work or vacation who cannot wait that long to tune in should make use of NordVPN, our recommended VPN. 

Can you stream 'Under The Bridge' in the U.K. and Australia?

"Under The Bridge" is not available for streaming in the U.K., Canada or Australia but will almost certainly be arriving on Disney Plus at some point in 2024.

For now, anybody currently away from the U.S. can use one of the best VPN services to access their usual streaming service. We recommend NordVPN thanks to its speed, reliability and trusted security features.

How was Reena Virk murdered?

Reena was invited to a party near the Craigflower Bridge in Saanich, British Columbia on Friday, November 14, 1997. Those assembled were drinking and smoking marijuana before the victim was attacked. A cigarette was stubbed out on her forehead and she was repeatedly beaten and kicked. Attempts were made to set fire to her hair. She managed to walk away after one girl intervened but was followed by two of the original antagonists, forced to remove her shoes and jacket, beaten once more and, by this stage unconscious, rolled into the water. The coroner ruled that it was death by drowning but an autopsy revealed that her head injuries were severe enough to have killed her.
