Netflix announced Tuesday that it will produce new episodes of the binge-worthy true crime series “Making a Murderer,” released in December.
After the series garnered Netflix six Emmy nominations, the streaming service stated that new episodes will be once again helmed by executive producers and directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos.
According to the statement, the new chapter in the “Making a Murderer” story will take inspiration from Wisconsinite Steven Avery’s post-conviction process, exploring how individuals involved in the case have been impacted.
“The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and [Brendan] Dassey’s legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case,” the statement reads.
After a year of critical and public acclaim, both Ricciardi and Demos said they are presently more devoted than ever to shedding light on the case that has captured global attention.
“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series,” the creators said. “The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”
There’s no word on how many episodes Netflix will release or when it will release them ― but rest assured that you’ll most likely watch them all in one sitting.
