Making A Murderer Returning To Netflix With More Episodes Following Its 6 Emmy Nominations!

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:

“Because of Ricciardi’s and Demos’ incredible vision, commitment and keen eye, audiences around the globe became completely captivated by the personal stories of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey and the unique lens their experiences provide into the criminal justice system. We’re thrilled to be continuing our longstanding relationship with the filmmakers, and look forward to giving our global viewers eagerly anticipated updates on this story.”

We’re thrilled too, Lisa!

While there’s no information regarding a premiere date just yet, make sure to see if MaM wins Directing, Picture Editing, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Writing, and/or Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series during the 68th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on September 10 and 11!

Will U be tuning in for Making a Murderer Season Two??
