The new installments will take fans of the documentary series back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld. This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as the emotional toll the process takes on all involved. Executive producers and co-directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are once again helming the project, with an exact episode count and premiere date for Season 2 yet to be announced.
