A new teaser trailer for Making a Murderer Part 2 has been released ahead of its October premiere date on Netflix.
The Netflix docuseries first premiered on Netflix in December 2015. The ten-episode first season, written and directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, explores the story of Steven Avery from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.
Avery had served 18 years in prison for the wrongful conviction of sexual assault and attempted murder of Penny Beerntsen, before being fully exonerated in 2003 by DNA evidence. He filed a suit against the county on this case. In 2005, Avery was arrested on charges of murdering Theresa Halbach, a local photographer, and was convicted in 2007.
The Making a Murderer series covers the arrest, prosecution, and conviction of Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in the murder, largely based on his confession.
The series was filmed over the course of ten years which ultimately made up the ten episodes. The show made the compelling case that Avery and Dassey were both wrongfully convicted of murdering Halbach by a broken and corrupt criminal justice system.
Making a Murderer captured the attention of the nation with viewers changing their minds a number of times over whether or not Avery and Dassey were, in fact, guilty and it looks like fans of the series won’t have much longer to wait for the second season after Netflix tweeted a new teaser for Part 2.

As revealed by the teaser See What’s Next, Part 2 will delve into efforts to overturn Avery’s conviction, as viewers are introduced to Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s post-conviction lawyer, in her fight to prove that Avery was wrongly convicted and win his freedom.
Making a Murderer Part 2 premiers on Friday, October 19 on Netflix.
