making a murderer

Another series of Netflix documentary 'Making a Murderer' is on the way, the makers have confirmed.

The first series followed the case of Steven Avery, who was convicted of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005. Two years earlier, he was acquitted for the wrongful conviction of sexual assault for which he served 18 years in prison.

Avery's nephew Brendan Dassey was also convicted. The series shed some serious doubt on both convictions, and the workings of Wisconsin's small-town law enforcement in the case.

Directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are still following the story, and have confirmed they will make another series to keep us updated. They've spoken to Avery's new lawyer Kathleen Zellner about the prospect of filming, and have continued to record their conversations with Avery.

"From our perspective this story is obviously not over," Ricciardi said, speaking during a Stranger Than Fiction panel discussion at New York's IFC Center. "It's real life and [the] cases are both still pending. We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan's case. We do know that the two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan's release or he could order a new trial. So we are on the edge of seats about that.

"To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this [case]."

The first series took 10 years to make, so who knows when we'll see the second. It depends on which turn the cases take next.
