Since Making A Murderer has finished, there’s been all sorts of teasing going on: books, a second series, and more new theories than you can shake a stick at.
It seems that our prayers for more information have finally been answered, with the news of a MAM-inspired Dateline Special on NBC.
According to NBC Chicago, it promising to ‘dig even deeper into the mystery’ that surrounds the Netflix series, with the show’s website listing Penny Beerntsen, the victim of the assault that Steven Avery wrongfully served 18 years for, as one of its special guests. The hour-long episode is sure to get tongues wagging all over again, with additional interviews apparently including Brendan Dassey’s lawyers and prosecutor Ken Kratz.
Making a Murderer first hit Netflix during December, and it has taken on a life of its own since then, with celebrities even getting in on the tweeting action.
The true crime story, spanning ten years, looks at the justice system through the eyes of Steven Avery and his story.
Both Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey have been convicted for the murder of Teresa Halbach, and are serving life sentences in prison. The series has caused a stir on social media across the world, with many questioning their guilt.
Lawyers and reporters from the original case have come forward since the interest spiked, offering opinions and raising EVEN MORE questions.
NBC Dateline’s The State of Wisconsin vs. Steven A. Avery will air on 29th January at 9pm local time, and again over the weekend. It seems you can also watch catch-up episodes on their website.
Who knows, perhaps we’ll finally get some more answers?
