The popular documentary series will return to Netflix.
Netflix has announced plans to stream new episodes of 'Making a Murderer.' Executive Producers / Directors, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, are now in production for the upcoming installments. The show's first season offered a detailed look into the conviction of Steven Avery and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
"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" said creators, Ricciardi and Demos.
The new material will focus on Avery and Dassey as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld. Episodes 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. The series 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.
"Because of Ricciardi's and Demos' incredible vision, commitment and keen eye, audiences around the globe became completely captivated by the personal stories of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey and the unique lens their experiences provide into the criminal justice system" said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary Programming. "We're thrilled to be continuing our longstanding relationship with the filmmakers, and look forward to giving our global viewers eagerly anticipated updates on this story."
