Three years afters the release of hit documentary series Making a Murderer, filmmaker Shawn Rech has announced a follow up series called Convicting a Murderer.

Making a Murderer was created by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos and followed the story of Steven Avery, a man who was charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach. While the documentary brought a lot of attention to the case and was watched by millions of people all over the world, it was also criticised for offering a one-sided view that benefitted Steven Avery.

Convicting a Murderer will approach the case from a new angle, examining "the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective." It will also "share with viewers the traumatic effects of being found guilty and vilified in the court of public opinion."

"We fight for the truth. We’ll present all of the evidence in the Avery case from the perspective of both the prosecution and the defense and see if viewers feel the same way they did two years ago following the first season of 'Making A Murderer'," said Rech.

Convicting a Murderer is currently looking for a home, while it's believed Netflix is currently working on season 2 of Making a Murderer.
