If you’ve been following Steven Avery’s story in Making A Murderer, here’s some good news. Netflix announced yesterday that the Emmy-winning true crime doc is getting a second season.
While the first season captivated us with the tale of Avery's trial, life story, and details about the murder, the new upcoming episodes will follow him and nephew Brendan Dassey as their legal teams challenge their convictions.
Both still maintain that they're innocent in the case, and are in the middle of a difficult legal process to try and prove it.
In season two, we'll get exclusive access to Avery's current lawyer Kathleen Zellner, Dassey's legal team, figures involves in the case, and the defendants' family members.
Original producers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are back at the helm for the next chapter, saying that they are "fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold".
Netflix promises it'll bring "an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as the emotion toll the process takes" - so it'll be cheerful viewing, then.
Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of original documentary programming, said: "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… We're thrilled to be continuing our longstanding relationship with the filmmakers."
There's no word on when the new series will land, but since it's a Netflix original we can be pretty certain that all the service's subscribers across the world will be able to watch it.
