Remember earlier this year when everyone was losing their minds over Making A Murderer? Well, Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are about to make a return. Netflix has confirmed that season 2 is currently in production.
The new episodes will feature Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner as she takes on the case. In a statement, show runners Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said:
“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series.
“The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”
There’s no word on when it will be released, or how many episodes we’ll get, so we’re just going to have to wait patiently for that.
If you’ve forgotten the facts, here’s a quick run down. In 1985, Avery was wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years for sexual assault. He was set free in 2003 after advances proved that it was another man. But he Dassey were quickly accused and found guilty of murdering 25-year-old Teresa Halbach.
Many believe that they were set up by police in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, to avoid a $36 million lawsuit for the wrongful conviction.
