Fans of Netflix’s sensational 10-piece crime documentary Making A Murderer will be pleased to know a second season is in the works, meaning we’ll soon have a new show to binge on now that everyone’s finished Stranger Things.
The first season followed the wrongful conviction of Wisconsin man Steven Avery who served 18 years in prison for a rape he didn’t commit. He was exonerated with the help of DNA evidence in 2003 but found himself behind bars again when he was accused of murdering 25-year-old Teresa Halblach with the help of his developmentally challenged teenage nephew Brendan Dassey. Filmmakers painted a picture of crooked cops and a wronged Avery and Dassey, but caught a lot of flak when it turned out that they’d left out some pretty pertinent evidence pointing to Avery’s guilt.
The second season “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 their convictions and life sentences upheld,” the announcement from Netflix explains.
While a release date has yet to be announced, fans can expect “exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner” who we are all hoping dearly as cool as his previous lawyers, the dreamy Dean Strang and Jerry Buting.
As psyched as we are for season 2 to drop, we’ve still got some questions that need answering. Mainly,
Why didn’t Steve Avery ever wear underwear?
Why did he set his cat on fire that one time?
How exciting could this season possibly be considering Avery and Dassey are both still in prison?
Does Brandon finally know what ‘inconsistent’ means?
Is he still banned from WrestleMania?
Is Dean Strang still married? (the answer is Googleable but I’m afraid of disappointment)
