Next Episode of Making a Murderer is
Making a Murderer chronicles the story of Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in prison for rape and was freed after DNA linked another man to the crime. His release triggered major criminal justice reform legislation, and he filed a lawsuit that threatened to expose corruption in local law enforcement and award him millions of dollars. But in the midst of the civil case, he became the prime suspect in a murder, for which he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Making A Murderer examines allegations of police and prosecutorial misconduct, evidence tampering and witness coercion. The series looks at what went wrong in the first case and questions whether scientific advances and legislative reforms over the past three decades have gotten us any closer to delivering truth and justice in the system.

The first installment of the Emmy-winning documentary series followed the journey of Steven Avery. Avery was convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder in 1985, but was exonerated by DNA evidence after serving 18 years in prison. He and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, were then convicted for the murder of Teresa Halbach just a few years after Avery's release.
In the second installment, series creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the Midwest to follow Avery, Dassey, their families, and the legal teams fighting on their behalf.
Part 2 introduces viewers to Kathleen Zellner, Avery's post-conviction lawyer, as well as Dassey's post-conviction lawyers Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin with Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth.
"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. "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."
