Now we get why they waited so long to greenlight more episodes!

One of the biggest surprises out of pop culture in 2015 was how successfully Netflix's true crime documentary Making a Murderer connected with audiences seemingly out of nowhere.

However, despite how passionately fans came to the support of potentially wrongfully convicted killers Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey in the case of Teresa Halbach's murder, the streaming service suspiciously never renewed the series for Season Two… until now!

It would seem as though Netflix simply wanted to wait and see how well the show really did with critics as opposed to just viewers before making any decisions, because just five days after the doc was nominated for a staggering six Emmy nominations, Making a Murderer was officially given a second season!

VP of Original Documentary Programming Lisa Nishimura praised creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos for their hard work in the renewal announcement on Tuesday, saying:

They dished that they've spoken with her about potentially starting the filmmaking process back up, and are recording conversations with the man who was locked up for killing Teresa Halbach!

Laura explained:

"From our perspective, this story is obviously not over. It's real life and [Steven and nephew Brendan Dassey's] cases are both still pending. We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan's case. 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 our seats about that. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting [this case.]"

But after the popular program sparked criticism of the Wisconsin justice department, Steven's civil lawyer, Stephen M. Glynn, believes the directors will have some issues getting people from the state to cooperate, saying:
