Ever since popular true crime documentary series "Making a Murderer" debuted on Netflix, viewers have clamored for more. 

Now it looks like we've finally gotten official confirmation that "more" is coming - and that includes continuing to tell Steven Avery's story.

The streaming service set off social media speculation when it tweeted this message out Tuesday morning:

But does that mean the next season of "Making a Murderer" will focus on someone else's story, or return to the one we're familiar with? Deadline reports viewers will indeed by getting more Avery:

"The story does continue," co-show runner Moira Demos said. "We are committed to finding a way to follow it, and we'll need to explore a different way to do it this time, because it is in the zeitgeist, it is in the 24-hour news cycle. So we're looking at new ways of doing that."

Mashable also reported that the second season will focus on "life post-conviction for Steven Avery and co-defendant Brendan Dassey. The pair's legal teams will be seen going up against the state of Wisconsin to challenge those convictions." 

But when exactly will season two bow? And will all the experts who contributed to season one return? Those questions will need to wait to be answered.

Avery spent 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit. In 2007 he was sentenced to life without parole for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
