A second series of Making A Murderer has finally been confirmed. We've already got the pizza place on speed dial and picked out our favourite PJs in preparation for the inevitable binge-watch...
Despite the fact that Making A Murderer first hit our screens MONTHS ago, we’re still hanging onto every new Steven Avery development that comes our way. Because, we were left with so many questions.
Now, though, we might finally get some answers. Because the folks behind the first 10-part crime series have confirmed that a follow-up series is ALREADY in production.
Lucky for us, the new instalment will pick up where the first one left off. Natch, this means that we’ll be filled in on the lives of convicted Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey.
It’s no secret that Steven has a new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, who’s been working hard on his case.
And it sounds like she’s played a huge role in the upcoming episodes, having told PEOPLE, ‘The new Netflix episodes will reveal all of the new evidence we have developed to show Steven is innocent and was framed for a second time.’
Brendan’s lawyer, Laura N. Nirider, said of SA’s nephew: ‘What gives him hope is the letters he receives from people all around the world.
‘Those letters and his family are the reasons he gets up nowadays. He is hopeful and grateful.’
Laura continued, ‘The whole world saw what happened to him over the course of season one. People are rightfully up in arms about what happened to him, and we are grateful a spotlight will continue to be shown on his case.’
One person who doesn’t seem too happy about the Netflix announcement is Teresa Halbach’s college friend, which is understandable.
She told PEOPLE that she chose not to watch the viral Netflix series, explaining, ‘I’d like to remember Teresa the way I remember her, and I don’t know what’s in the documentary.’
But she does welcome the discussion about criminal justice reform – something that’s become wider since the release of Making a Murderer. She said, ‘It’s okay to start a good conversation. If there was injustice, then hopefully that will be straightened out.’
No date has been confirmed for the new series. But as soon as we know, you’ll know.
