WATCH: The gripping first full trailer for Making A Murderer: Part Two is here
The Making A Murderer case continues very soon
Netflix's documentary series Making A Murderer returns on 19 October as show creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos head back to the Midwest.
For the second season of the wildly popular show, Ricciardi and Demos had exclusive access to Steven Avery and his co-defendant and nephew Brendan Dassey, their families and the legal teams fighting for justice on their behalf.
Over the course of 10 new episodes, the second season of Making a Murderer provides an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, exploring the emotional toll the process takes on all involved.
After the first series was released, Avery's legal team of Dean Strang and Jerry Buting were heralded for defending Avery in court and part two of the documentary will introduce us to Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s hard-charging post-conviction lawyer, in her fight to prove that Avery was wrongly convicted and win his freedom.
Ricciardi and Demos follow Zellner, who has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in America, as she tirelessly works the case and uncovers unexpected evidence about what may have happened to Teresa Halbach and about how and why the jury convicted Steven Avery of her murder.
Ricciardi and Demos also follow Dassey’s post-conviction lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin, with Northwestern University’s Centre on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, as they fight in federal court to prove their client’s confession was involuntary, a fight that could take Brendan’s case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The case continues on 19 October.
