How Many 'The Thing About Pam' Episodes Are There? A Guide to NBC's True Crime Series

The Thing About Pam premiered on NBC on Tuesday, March 8, leaving viewers enthralled by the true crime story that is so shocking it's almost unbelievable.

NBC's new show stars Renée Zellweger as Pamela 'Pam' Hupp, the woman at the center of the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria.

Pam was the last person to see Betsy alive and she also became a key witness in the state's trial against the victim's husband Russ, who was charged for the murder after Pam claimed he was a domestic abuser.

Here is everything you need to know about the show, including how many episodes there will be.

How Many Episodes Will 'The Thing About Pam' Have?

The Thing About Pam will have six episodes in total, with each title making a reference to Pam herself such as the premiere episode's "She's A Good Friend."

The showis a limited series which explores the whole of the Betsy Faria case as well as its aftermath, particularly in relation to Pam.

Each episode will focus on a different, even wilder chapter in the case, from the police's mismanagement of evidence to how Pam tried to swindle Betsy's daughters out of their mother's life insurance.

Made by NBC, the show is adapted from Dateline NBC's podcast of the same name, as well as the many episodes the criminal investigation show has dedicated to the real-life case and Pam's involvement in it.

When Will 'The Thing About Pam' Air?

The Thing About Pam airs on NBC, meaning that episodes will not be available to binge-watch like the true crime dramas featured on Netflix.

Instead, viewers will have to tune in every Tuesday at 10 p.m. EST to watch the next episode and learn more about Pam.

For those that prefer to stream their TV shows, the season will also be released on a weekly basis on NBC's streaming platform Peacock.

Will 'The Thing About Pam' Have a Second Season?

Given The Thing About Pam is a true crime series there is only so much the show can cover before reaching the current day.

The show has around 10 years worth of events to cover in its series run-time, both in the Betsy Faria murder case and with regards to the things Pam has done since then, and this is all covered in the show's six episodes.

The Thing About Pam was also ordered as a limited series, meaning the show will not have a second season even if there is a further development in the case.

The Thing About Pam continues Tuesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
