This sure would be inneresting…
Since the release of Netflix‘s hit docu-series Making a Murderer, TONS of people have binge-watched the intriguing story of Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, who were convicted of murdering Teresa Halbach in 2005.
The documentary has been a massively hot topic over the last couple weeks; not only have the attorneys involved in the case opened up about their experiences, but Dr. Phil and Nancy Grace have also gotten in on covering of the controversial case!
But all the controversy hasn’t gotten Avery out of jail, and the creators of the series know that his story isn’t over — which means there’s a possibility of a second season!
Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said the popular streaming service is definitely considering a second season.
Co-creator Laura Ricciardi told reporters at the Television Critics Association panel on Sunday:
“I think today marks four weeks since the series launched and what we’ve managed to do in the past four weeks is we’ve had several telephone conversations with Steven Avery and we did record those calls with the eye of including them in future episodes should there be more episodes.”
However, Laura did say that she and her filming partner, Moira Demos, have not “returned to Wisconsin in the past four weeks.”
“As we’ve said before, in relation to this story, this story is ongoing, these cases are open, but it’s real life. You don’t know what’s going to happen. We are ready to follow these. If there are significant developments, we’ll be there.”
Moira also addressed the claims that their series left out key evidence and information that was presented in the trial saying:
“We’ve said before, this is a documentary. We’re not prosecutors, we’re not defense attorneys, we did not set out to convict or exonerate someone. We set out to examine the criminal justice system today.”
“We’re aware now the prosecutor is saying his point of view isn’t included, we disagree. We used original footage captured at press conferences, at public forums.”
The filmmaker also shared that the prosecutors declined the “multiple opportunities” to be part of their documentary, as well as a chance to follow up with them after the trial.
While we don’t know if we’ll ever get a season two, but we’re definitely still interested in the story and hope something can be worked out!
