Waco, the most recent documentary on Netflix, The release of American Apocalypse on March 22 coincides with the 30th anniversary of the tragic 1993 incident in Waco, Texas when a standoff between cult leader David Koresh and his followers and the ATF and other Texas law enforcement resulted in a 51-day siege that resulted in more than 80 deaths.
The Waco tragedy and David Koresh have been the subject of numerous documentaries, books, and television specials; however, the 2018 miniseries starring Taylor Kitsch as Koresh is one of the most well-known dramatizations of this particular incident.
The remaining members of the Branch Davidian cult will be on trial for their crimes; it is anticipated that The Aftermath will resemble a courtroom drama. The first seasons of Waco and David Koresh’s and the Branch Davidian sect’s beginnings will be explored through flashbacks in the show. It aims to draw attention to the domestic terrorism that developed due to the siege and subsequent trials. The rise of the American militia movement, which foreshadows the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, will also be at the center of the series’ plot. Domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh, best known for planning the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building in April 1995, which killed 168 people and injured 680 others, will also be a big part of the story.
