Netflix Confirms Production of New Episodes of Making a Murderer


Season 2 of “Making a Murderer” is coming! Netflix has finally confirmed after months of hinting that production on new episodes of Making a Murderer has begun.

New episodes of the documentary series will continue to follow how convicted murderer but presumed innocent Steven Avery and his NEW legal teams continue to fight the convictions while the state seeks to uphold the life sentences of Avery and co-defendant Brendan Dassey.


If you HAVEN’T watched “Making a Murderer” for some crazy reason, here are he bare bones. Back in 1985, Avery was convicted of the rape and sentenced to prison. After 18 years, he was exonerated when DNA testing proved him innocent. While pursuing a wrongful conviction lawsuit of millions of dollars against the state and the detectives in the rape investigation, he was arrested for the 2005 murder of Theresa Halbach – for which he has retained his innocence the entire time. He claims he was framed by the police, state, and investigators as a means of getting rid of Avery and his million dollar lawsuit.

Season two of “Making a Murderer” will offer an exclusive look at Avery’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, as well as Dassey’s legal team of Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin. Season one saw Avery defence team, Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, during the original trial as they claimed Avery was framed. Since the original trial, Strang and Buting had to leave the case due to the lack of funds and the need to take on other cases.

Like the first season, there will be intimate access to the families and characters involved with the case.

“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series,” said Making a Murderer creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. “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”

As of now, the show’s second season is without an episode count or expected release date.

Making A Murderer Season 2 Is Coming


If you left the last episode of “Making a Murderer” feeling exasperated, angry, and infuriated than you are in luck? Netflix has announced a second season is on the way.

According to the announcement, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, the directors of the docuseries are working on a follow up season as well as have been in contact with criminal attorney Kathleen Zellner as well as Avery himself.

“From our perspective this story is obviously not over,” Ricciardi said. “It’s real life and (Avery’s and Brendan Dassey’s) cases are both still pending. We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan’s case. We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan’s release or he could order a new trial. So we are on the edge of seats about that. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this (case).”

As you may expect the citizens of Manitowoc County don’t look fondly upon “Making a Murderer,” Stephen Avery, or Ricciardi and Demos because of the way they feel their state was portrayed in Season 1.

“There is a lot of hostility toward these two women (Ricciardi and Demos) in Wisconsin,” said Stephen M. Glynn, Avery’s civil lawyer, during a recent film panel in New York City. “The theory is that [they] have played Wisconsin unfairly. But among those people who think and are a little more educated and thoughtful about these sorts of issues, there is appreciation.”

However, guess who HAS profited from the being portrayed unfavorably in the series?  self-admitted “dick” DA Ken Kratz. Who doesn’t want to punch this smug asshole right? Well apparently, we still all want to know what he really knows or has to say because he has gotten a book out of the situation.

There is also a rumor spinning out in the mill that a movie is on the brink. Doug Schneider writes at the Green Bay Press Gazette that the local betting shop BoyleSports is taking bids on which actors could play Avery, including Billy Bob Thornton, Danny McBride, Kiefer Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Jeff Bridges, and even Leonardo DiCaprio, who just won an Oscar for almost getting raped by a bear.
