If you’re still obsessing over Making A Murderer – and we don’t blame you – we’ve got some MAJOR news for you.
Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos have spoken out about the prospect of a second MaM series. Because, we’ve been left with so many unanswered questions, no?
Speaking at a Stranger Than Fiction panel in New York, the pair, who filmed the viral Netflix series over a span of 10 years, revealed that they are still recording phone calls with Steven Avery, and have been in talks with his new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner.
And according to Variety, they’ve discussed filming the rest of the process – because, with Avery and Brendan still in jail, and a bail application reportedly on the cards, the story is still unfolding.
They explained, ‘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. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this [case].’
And that’s exactly what we’d ALL like too, right?
The Netflix film was first released in December last year, and followed the lengthy court case surrounding the tragic murder of Teresa Halbach. It also went into Steven’s back story of being wrongfully convicted of sexual assault, years before she went missing.
Both Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey were convicted and are currently serving life sentences. Since the documentary went viral, with celebrities and social media users across the globe tuning in, new reports and evidence have been emerging.
Avery now has a kick-ass new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, and it’s been reported that she is currently working towards Steven’s appeal case.
Hopefully we won’t be waiting for too long…
