Avery and his nephew Brendan Massey were convicted for the rape and murder of freelance photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005, although some doubt their guilt.
"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.
Ricciardi and Demos also follow Dassey's post-conviction lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin, with Northwestern University's Centre on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, as they fight in federal court to prove their client's confession was involuntary, a fight that could take Brendan's case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"I have one goal", Zellner says in the trailer, "And that's to overturn the conviction of Steven Avery".
Netflix has released the first trailer for "Making a Murderer Part 2", the follow up to the hit true crime docuseries that made the case for convicted murderer Steven Avery's innocence. The new season will offer up an in-depth look at the post-conviction process and the emotional toll it takes on those involved. Adding another layer of intrigue to the story, Avery was arrested for the Halbach murder at the same time that he had a $36 million lawsuit against Maintowoc County for a previous wrongful conviction that resulted in him serving 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
