Making A Murderer has been confirmed to RETURN to Netflix with new episodes.
The Emmy-nominated docu-series followed the story of Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey as they were convicted for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005.
According to Rolling Stone, a press release from the documentary creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos promises “intimate access to the families and characters close to the case.”
The filmmakers said the series has begun production, but didn’t specify how many new episodes they were making or whether attorneys Jerry Buting or Dean Strang, who defended Avery in his original trial, would be featured.
Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and Dassey’s team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, have given the documentary creators exclusive access as they look at new ways to appeal the infamous case.
“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series,” Ricciardi and Demos said.
“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.”
The original series of Making a Murderer was nominated for six Emmy awards, including Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.
