New season of Making a Murderer in production

Making a Murderer is making a return to the small screen!

Netflix have announced the hugely popular documentary series will return for a second season.

The addictive show followed the arrest, trial, and conviction of Steven Avery from Wisconsin, who was found guilty of murdering Teresa Halbach. Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, was also convicted as an accessory to murder.


In a statement, Netflix said: “The new installments will take fans back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld.

“This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as, the emotional toll the process takes on all involved. The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and Dassey’s legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case.”

It is still unknown when the new episodes will premiere, or how many there will be.
