Netflix announced on Tuesday that the popular series, “Making a Murderer,” will be returning with new episodes.
The new season is going back to the Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey trial, looking into the post-conviction process and the emotional burden the case placed on those involved.
In 2005, Avery was convicted of murdering Teresa Halbach. The first season covered Avery’s life and the trial itself.
Internet users sparred over Avery’s guilt or innocence. An online petition sprung up trying to garner support for his release. The requests have not come to fruition.
Never miss a local story.
As of now, Avery remains in prison.
People took to Twitter to express their excitement about the show’s continuation:
