After the release of the West Memphis 3 last week, several of you asked us when HBO would re-air the documentaries that first kicked off the movement to free Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Miskelley.

The answer is: next week.

The premium cable network announced today that the first documentary, "Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills" (1996) will air on Aug. 29 at 5 p.m. "Paradise Lost 2: Revelations" (2000) will air the next day at 5:45 p.m. The first film covers the case, in which the trio were convicted in the 1993 killings of three 8-year-old boys in West Memphis, Ark. "Revelations" features interviews with the three young men after their convictions. 

If those dates and times don't work for you or your DVR, hit up HBO Go or HBO On Demand from Aug. 24 through Sept. 30 to watch the films.

The third documentary, "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory" is set to debut on HBO in January, and will tell the story from beginning to end, concluding with the trio's release from prison on Friday.
