Netflix has announced “Making A Murderer” season 2 will premiere on October 19.
10 new episodes of the hit true-crime series will chronicle the post-conviction process and efforts to exonerate Steven Avery and his nephew and co-defendant, Brendan Dassey.
After the first season of “Making A Murderer,” a petition was launched to pardon both Steven and Avery to no avail.
In June, the Supreme Court turned down a plea to intervene in Brendan’s case.
Brendan, who appears to have mental challenges, was a teenager when he was convicted in 2007 for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.
He confessed to helping his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill her. But, interrogation video clearly shows investigators coercing his confession and giving him details about the killing that he doesn’t appear to know.
Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos released the following statement about the new season of “Making A Murderer“:
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.
Building on Part One, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part Two, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit.
