Netflix has just announced the second part of Steven Avery’s story.
Making a Murderer Part 2 will debut on October 19. The streaming giant announced the news via its official Twitter account, alongside a new teaser image and video.
The first part of Making a Murderer, which premiered on December 2015 told the story of Avery, a man convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder in 1985 but exonerated by DNA evidence after 18 years in prison. According to Entertainment Tonight, the series’ second installment will follow series creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos as they return to the Midwest to follow Avery and the legal teams fighting his 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,” Ricciardi and Demos said in a statement via press release. “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.”
Part 2 will be available for streaming on October 19.
