'Making a Murderer' Returns for Second Season Next Month

'Making a Murderer' Returns for Second Season Next Month

It's been nearly three years since Netflix viewers dove headfirst into the addictive true crime series Making a Murderer, and though the wait has been long (long enough to probably lose quite a few people's interest, honestly), we've finally got a Season 2 premiere date!

The biggest Netflix docu-series to date will be back on October 19 with 10 new episodes of Making a Murderer. I wish I shared their faith in Avery, but instead I wouldn't be surprised if we got another muddled season where the intentions are good, but the story can't support it. DNA evidence eventually proved his innocence resulting in Avery being released in 2003. A few years after his release, he and Dassey, who was a teen at the time, were convicted of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.

In the second installment, series creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the Midwest to follow Avery, Dassey, their families, and the legal teams fighting on their behalf. A confession from his mentally delayed nephew Brendan Dassey placed both men behind bars, although the confession has been a point of contention for many.

'Steven and Brendan, their families and their legal and investigative teams have once again graciously granted us access, giving us a window into the complex web of American criminal justice, ' the pair's statement continued.

Part two of Making a Murder will feature 10 episodes, detailing the post-conviction process and the attempts to exonerate Steven Avery and his nephew and co-defendant, Brendan Dassey.

'We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers'. Avery was also denied a new trial earlier this month.

Zellner recently filed documents implicating Brendan's older brother Bobby Dassey - with a 54-page supplement claiming Bobby gave a false testimony. The state fought the ruling and won, and Dassey remains in custody. Avery insists police framed him.
