Making a Murderer Season 2 has been confirmed.
“Making a Murderer” will return to Netflix with new episodes, the streaming network announced Tuesday.
The new installments will take fans of the documentary series back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld. This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as the emotional toll the process takes on all involved.
Our popular article last week, outlining an interesting theory about the Steven Avery case, is testament enough that people are frothing to find out the truth. When the first 10-part instalment ended many viewers were still left wondering if Steven Avery was innocent or guilty and now the Netflix series will be back with more gritty details, according to filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos.
Speaking at the Stranger Than Fiction panel in New York, filmmaker Laura Ricciardi told Variety, there is so much more to come from the cases of Stephen and nephew Brendan Dassey.
She said: “From our perspective this story is obviously not over. It’s real life and (Avery’s and Brendan Dassey’s) cases are both still pending.
“We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan’s case. We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan’s release or he could order a new trial. So we are on the edge of seats about that. ” Ricciardi confirmed: “To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this (case).”
Significant developments may include 4,000 pages of secret emails getting admitted into evidence to further shed light on the case. The state of Wisconsin has agreed to release the information as Chicago-based lawyer Kathleen Zellner gets set to take her appeal case to court in Manitowoc County in the coming weeks.
