“Making A Murderer” is Coming Back to Netflix Next Month

As you read this, Steven Avery — the man at the centre of Netflix’s most gripping docu-series Making a Murderer — is in jail serving a life sentence for the murder of 25 year-old photographer Teresa Halbech. More than two years since the program first aired, part two has finally been given a release date. Here are the details

Making a Murderer will return to Netflix in October

Hold onto your hats, folks, because the long-anticipated second installment of the Emmy-winning documentary Making a Murderer will premiere on Netflix on October 19 with 10 new episodes. Here’s a trailer of what’s coming

The follow-up season follows Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s post-conviction lawyer who has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in the United States. The story will also follow Avery’s co-defendant and nephew Brendon Dassey (who was 16 at the time of the murder) as his attorneys attempt to convince the court that their client’s confession was involuntary.

Fans of the series will recall the journey of Steven Avery, a man convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder in 1985, who was later exonerated by DNA evidence after serving 18 years in prison. A few years later, he and his nephew were then convicted for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

“Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit. We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers,” filmmakers Laura Riccardi and Moira Demos said in a statement.

Making a Murderer Part 2 will be available to stream on Netflix globally on October 19
