Making a Murderer to return with new episodes



It’s the courtroom drama that gripped not only America but much of the world. And Netflix have just announced that their Emmy-nominated series Making a Murderer is returning to our screens with brand new episodes. Executive producers and directors, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, are in production of the new installments, which will continue the story of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, who were convicted of the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.

The documentary series picks up the story again with an in-depth look at the post-conviction process that the two men are going through. Quite possibly the biggest pull for viewers will be Avery’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, who has caused quite a stir on Twitter offering snippets of ‘new evidence’ that she believes will prove his innocence.

Zellner has stated:  “We are continuing to examine every aspect of Mr Avery’s case and all of his legal options. We are confident Mr Avery’s conviction will be vacated when we present the new evidence and results of our work to the appropriate court.”

According to reports, Avery’s legal team has utilised forensic experts who have used ‘Luminol’ testing to find blood not visible to the naked eye. This is part of the legal team’s efforts to prove that Teresa Halbach was not killed in the Avery salvage yard.

The new episodes will also feature Brendan Dassy’s legal team, which is led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin. The press release issued by Netflix adds that there will be “intimate” access to the Avery family and people close to the case.

“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” said creators, Ricciardi and Demos.
