‘Making a Murderer’ picked up for Season 2 on Netflix
“Making a Murderer” will return to Netflix with new episodes, the streaming service announced Tuesday.
The new installments will rejoin the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery and co-defendant Brendan Dassey as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the state of Wisconsin fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld.
This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the post-conviction process, as well as the emotional toll the process takes on all involved. Executive producers and co-directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are once again helming the project, with an exact episode count and premiere date for Season 2 yet to be announced.
The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, and Dassey’s legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case.
“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series. The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold,” creators Ricciardi and Demos say in a statement.
