Netflix has officially announced that Making a Murderer will return for more episodes.
The viral documentary, which chronicles the trial and incarceration of Steven Avery, became a worldwide hit after Netflix released it in December 2015.
The first season took Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos 10 years to make, and both are returning for the next installment.
Netflix released a statement detailing what the new episodes will consist of:
“The new installments will take fans of the acclaimed documentary series back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld.
This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as, the emotional toll the process takes on all involved.
The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and Dassey’s legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case.”
As for when to expect the new episodes, Netflix told Buzzfeed there’s “no launch date yet.”
