Netflix’s series Making a Murderer is filming new episodes for a second season, the company just announced.
The announcement contained no details about a debut date or number of episodes, but said they “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.”
Executive producers and directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are following Steven Avery’s lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, and attorneys for his nephew Brendan Dassey, who are “led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin.”
Netflix also said there new episodes will have “intimate access to the families and characters close to the case.”
In their joint press release quote, Ricciardi and Demos said, “We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series. 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 first season was filmed over 10 years.
