My, have we waited patiently for this! It has been almost three years since the original Making a Murderer arrived on the streaming service, hooking the nation in droves. The crime series turned us into lone detectives and had us all talking conspiracy theories with our mates. Well, get ready to cower on the edge of that sofa once again, because Making a Murderer 2 arrives next month (19/10).
For those of you who didn’t watch the first season (which probably totals just the three of you!), the documentary series, surrounds the murder of Teresa Halbach and the subsequent arrests of Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey – charged and sentenced with committing said crime. Twists and turns follow throughout with claims of forced confessions and alleged evidence tampering, which lead thousands of viewers to doubt their convictions and demand they be overturned.
Both Avery and Dassey, to this date, are still incarcerated for the crime. However, this new follow-up will detail attorney Kathleen Zellner’s attempt to prove their innocence, with even more shocking detail coming to light. Not to be missed!
We suggest you catch up before the new 10-part series arrives on screens, or refresh your memory if you watched it the first time round, because this will require your full attention, you are likely to be discussing it for weeks, after all!
Snacks, drinks and aeroplane mode for us!
