Everything You Need to Know About Making a Murderer Season 2
Before you’re glued to Netflix for Part 2 of Making a Murderer here’s everything we know about the 10 episodes that will give us an in-depth look at the high-stakes postconviction process as well as exploring the emotional toll the process takes on everyone involved.
Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the Midwest where they have exclusive access to Steven Avery and his co-defendant and nephew Brendan Dassey, their families and the legal teams fighting for justice on their behalf.
“Steven and Brendan, their families and their legal and investigative teams have once again graciously granted us access, giving us a window into the complex web of American criminal justice,” said executive producers, writers and directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. “Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit. We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers.”
In Making a Murderer Season 2 we will be introduced to Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s hard-charging postconviction lawyer, in her fight to prove that Avery was wrongly convicted and win his freedom. Zellner has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in America!
We’ll see Zellner tirelessly works the case and uncover unexpected evidence about what may have happened to Teresa Halbach and about how and why the jury convicted Steven of her murder. THAT’S WHAT WE ALL WANT TO KNOW!
The second season of Making a Murderer also follow Dassey’s postconviction lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin with Northwestern University’s Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, as they fight in federal court to prove their client’s confession was involuntary. This fight could take Brendan’s case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. If that happens will we get a third season of Making a Murderer?? Only time will tell…
