Almost three years after the release of hit true-crime series Making a Murderer, Netflix has released the trailer for its highly anticipated follow up.
As those of you who watched it will know, the original docuseries followed Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey as they were investigated for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Both were ultimately convicted for the crime and both received life sentences. Season 2 focusses on Avery’s lengthy post-conviction appeal process, which was recently denied by the supreme court.
“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,” said directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. “We have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit.”
Making a Murderer Season 2 premieres on Netflix on 19 October 2018.
