Exclusive clip: Oxygen’s “Snapped” hits 400 episode milestone

A select number of series manage to hit the 100-episode milestone in today’s television landscape, but when Oxygen hits play on the latest episode of Snapped on Sunday night, the true crime hit will enter into an elite club.

While the genre is not new—its roots in pop culture can be traced to writer Edmund Pearson’s 1924 Lizzie Borden book Studies in Murder—there’s no denying that true crime is having a major moment, one fueled by streaming services and all-crime-all-the-time networks that feed an ever-growing audience hungry for whodunit docs.
