There could be another season of "Making A Murderer" headed to Netflix. The 10-part docu-series quickly captivated many people as it told the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery and his case surrounding the death of Teresa Halbach.
Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, who released the series last December, recently told reporters at the Stranger Than Fiction panel in New York that they believe there is still more to the story that needs to be told.
According to Variety, Ricciardi and Moira said they have already talked to Kathleen Zellner, Avery's new lawyer, about the possibility of doing a follow-up. They also revealed they are continuing to record their conversations with the 53-year-old inmate.
"From our perspectives this story is obviously not over,” Ricciardi said, adding that Avery's case and his nephew Brandan Dassey's are still pending. Avery is currently serving a life sentence in a Wisconsin prison for the 2005 murder of Halbach, a photographer who worked for Auto Life. Dassey is also in prison for charges related to the same crime.
"We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan’s case," Ricciardi continued. “We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan’s release or he could order a new trial. So we are on the edge of seats about that. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this [case].”
It's not clear if Netflix has, or will, green-light another season of "Making A Murderer," but Variety reports that Ricciardi and Moiras could face some trouble if they go back to Wisconsin to film.
"There is a lot of hostility toward these two women in Wisconsin,” Avery’s civil attorney Stephen M. Glynn explained. “The theory is that have played Wisconsin unfairly.”
As previously reported, Avery has repeatedly said he's innocent and had nothing to do with Halbach's murder. He believes he was framed for her death.
This month, Zellner shared a letter Avery wrote from prison claiming that there was another suspect but that police decided not to pursue the other person so they could frame him.
