The story of Steven Avery gripped millions worldwide after Making A Murderer premiered in 2015, but the story isn't over.

That's the word from the new trailer for Making a Murderer, which returns to Netflix on October 19.

The release added, "Over the course of 10 new episodes, "Making a Murderer Part 2" provides an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, exploring the emotional toll the process takes on all involved".

Dassey, who was almost released in 2017 after two courts overturned his conviction only for a third to uphold it, confessed to his and Avery's 2005 killing of Theresa Halbach, though his defense attorneys argued that the admittance was coerced by police.

Part two of the true-crime docu-series picks up right where part one left off, with lawyers representing Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey attempting to get their clients' convictions overturned.

"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", filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said in a statement. Dassey, in particular, recently hit a brick wall in his quest for freedom this summer when the Supreme Court refused to hear his case, so it will be interesting to see what bearing this new evidence could have on both cases.

At long last, the trailer for the much anticipated second season of Netflix's Making a Murderer has been released.

Avery is armed with a new attorney, Catherine Zellner, who, as stated in the trailer, is well-known for overturning wrongful convictions, and from the trailer, there also appears to be some new evidence.
