Brandan Dassey's story will also continue, follow his postconviction 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.
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.
After the documentary series became a pop culture sensation, it only made sense for Netflix to green-light a second season, which drops October 19 in full. In the preview, prominent defense attorney Kathleen Zellner has taken on Avery's case amid an outpour of support from fans who tuned in for Season 1. With the release date now less than two weeks away, Netflix earlier today released the trailer for the show's second season. This time, prominent defense attorney Kathleen Zellner, who holds the US record for most overturned wrongful convictions, is on the case.
Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration
In December 2017, she said that women who had accused Mr Trump of sexual assault "should be heard". Haley was governor of SC when she was tapped by Trump to be the USA envoy to the United Nations .
Season 2, which consists of 10 new episodes, finds filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos returning to the midwest for exclusive interviews with Avery, Dassey, their families and the legal teams fighting on their behalf.
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.
The sequel, "Making a Murderer 2", will follow their appeals.
