Streaming giant Netflix has just released the official trailer for the highly anticipated second series of Making A Murderer.
The series is promising fans 10 episodes of twists and turns in the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, who were both convicted of the murder of Theresa Halbach in 2005. The original series had viewers gripped from the get go.
Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are providing viewers with 'an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, exploring the emotional toll the process takes on all involved'.
The second season will centre on Avery's post-conviction lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, trying to win his case.
In the trailer, Kathleen says she has uncovered unexpected evidence along the way, with the lawyer revealing a potentially huge hole in the original trial.
"The prosecution's case was Teresa never left the property, but the last call pings off a cellphone tower miles away from the Avery property," explains Kathleen in the clip.
As well as Avery, Making a Murderer Part 2 will document the efforts of Dassey's lawyers, who are trying to prove that his confession was 'involuntary'.
Dassey, who has learning difficulties, was also convicted in connection to the murder, based primarily on a confession he made while under interrogation. Both men were sentenced to life in prison.
Avery was previously imprisoned for 18 years after he was wrongfully convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder, only to be exonerated by DNA evidence in 2003.
Following his release, Avery filed a civil lawsuit against Mantiwoc County for £27.3 million, which was still pending when he was arrested over Teresa's murder.
Defence lawyers argued that the prosecution's evidence was 'inconsistent', and claimed they were attempting to 'frame' him in retaliation to the lawsuit.
There's just a few days to wait until the series drops onto the subscription streaming service later this month on 19th October.
