Good news for fans of “Making a Murderer.” A second season may be in the works.
The Netflix docu-series follows Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, who were both found guilty of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. The series cast doubt on whether law enforcement officials handled the investigation correctly, because Avery was wrongfully imprisoned for a previous crime he didn’t commit.

Filmmakers Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi told Time Out London they are speaking with Avery’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, about resuming production.
“Steven Avery now has a new attorney, Kathleen Zellner, who seems to have a distinguished career turning over wrongful convictions, and in many of those cases actually solving the crime. Steven is excited and grateful to have new counsel. And we’ve been talking to Kathleen Zellner about the potential of filming with her and continuing to follow the story.”
Zellner has not done many interviews since taking over the case, but did say in February that she believes “significant advances” in forensic testing since Avery was convicted in 2007 will be key to securing his release.
