“Steven and Brendan, their families and their legal and investigative teams have once again graciously granted us access, giving us a window into the complex web of American criminal justice,” executive producers, writers and directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, said. “Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit. We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers.”

The 10 episode series will launch on October 19. The first season is available to stream now.

'Making a Murderer' Season 2 Could Hit Netflix in Late 2017!

New details about the upcoming second season of Making a Murderer have been revealed and it was announced that new episodes of the documentary series should hit Netflix by the end of the year!

Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, the series creators of Making a Murderer, are currently filming the second season.
