Investigation Discovery, the leading true crime network, has launched a new chapter in the twisted family saga of Natalia Grace Barnett, THE CURIOUS CASE OF NATALIA GRACE: NATALIA SPEAKS, which will premiere in Africa on Sunday, 28 January.

Picking up where the shocking finale of THE CURIOUS CASE OF NATALIA GRACE left off, NATALIA SPEAKS dives headfirst into the questions, controversies, and secrets unearthed in the first instalment, but this time, Natalia shares her side of the story. The six-part docuseries will also showcase an extensive, emotional sit-down between Natalia and her adoptive father, Michael Barnett, as they sit face-to-face for the first time and come to terms with the accusations that have been thrown around in both directions. THE CURIOUS CASE OF NATALIA GRACE: NATALIA SPEAKS will premiere two new episodes every Sunday at 21:00 CAT starting on 28 January and continuing through 11 February.

“When THE CURIOUS CASE OF NATALIA GRACE premiered in 2023, audiences were insatiably compelled by this twisted, confounding saga, making it one of ID’s most-viewed new series across cable and streaming. This story is far from over, and it’s clear our viewers have many more questions they want answered. NATALIA SPEAKS is our response to that demand and offers Natalia’s perspective to this stranger-than-fiction mystery,” said Jason Sarlanis, President, Turner Networks, ID & HLN, Linear and Streaming Warner Bros. Discovery.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF NATALIA GRACE: NATALIA SPEAKS offers exclusive access to Natalia Grace Barnett as she shares her story and confronts her former adoptive parents, Michael and Kristine Barnett’s accusations head-on. Over the course of six parts, NATALIA SPEAKS retraces her adoption saga and the Barnett’s allegations from Natalia’s perspective, offering insight into what really went on behind closed doors in the Barnett’s home and how much truth there actually is to their claim Natalia was not a 6-year-old Ukrainian orphan with a rare genetic disorder, but rather a homicidal adult intent on harming them and their children.

NATALIA SPEAKS also features previously unseen evidence and footage, as well as new theories and testimony from an array of voices, including the retired FBI agents who initially investigated Natalia’s case, genetic experts who helped determine Natalia’s actual age, and the Tippecanoe County Deputy Prosecutor Jackie Starbuck who prosecuted Michael in his October 2022 trial. In addition, the docuseries sheds light on Natalia’s next chapter, offering a portrait of her life with her new adoptive family and exclusive interviews with her adoptive parents, Bishop Antown and Christina Manns.
