Popular crime documentary “Making a Murderer” set to return for a second series

In December of 2015 Making a Murderer premiered on Netflix. From that very evening right through to 2016 all anyone could talk about was the main man of the show – Steven Avery.

I’m fairly certain many of you out there have seen the first series and if you haven’t then there is a high chance you have been living under a rock for the past 12 months. The documentary follows the real-life case of Manitowoc County resident Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in prison after being wrongly convicted of a rape, only to then find himself back behind bars for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.

His nephew, Brendan Dassey – at the time, a teenager with learning difficulties – was also convicted of the murder, after supposedly being coerced into making a confession.  While a judge overturned the ruling for Brendan, 27, fans of the show were left outraged after discovering he’s still behind bars.

Now in 2017 it has been reported by Netflix that a second series is to follow later this year following the latest stories unfolding following both Steven and Brendan. Netflix’s vice president of original content, Cindy Holland confirmed the news to USA Today saying;

‘The story is still ongoing, so you will see new episodes coming sometime this year as this story continues to unfold”
