When will Netflix release the next series about convicted murderer Steven Avery?

Netflix has not yet announced the release date of the new episodes but it has confirmed that they are due to arrive some time in 2017. 

“The story is still ongoing, so you will see new episodes coming sometime this year as this story continues to unfold,” Netflix's VP of original content, Cindy Holland, told USA Today.

“We don’t know when, for sure, new episodes will be coming."

Directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are currently producing new episodes of the cult documentary series for Netflix. 

The new instalments will follow convicted murderer Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey as their legal teams challenge their convictions and fight for their freedom. 

Netflix said: “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.” 

There will be access to people close to the case as well as the defendants’ families and legal teams including Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner. 

In a hint at the possible timeframe, Zellner’s website says: “Making a Murderer Season 2 is set to coincide with Zellner's appeal.” 

Netflix has confirmed that there will be more episodes of Making a Murderer

She told People magazine: "The new Netflix episodes will reveal all of the new evidence we have developed to show Steven is innocent and was framed for a second time."

Avery’s ex-lawyers Dean Strang and Jerome Buting represented him during his first trial for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. 

He was eventually convicted for her murder in 2007 and later claimed that his former lawyers ‘they didn't do their job' properly.

Strang told Express.co.uk that he and Buting will probably not feature “to a great extent” in Making a Murderer Season 2. 

He added: “I think the story has moved on from the days when myself and Jerry were directly involved in it.”

Dassey's life sentence was unexpectedly overturned in August, although he remains in prison because the state has appealed the ruling. 

In a joint statement, Ricciardi and Demos said: “We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series. 

“The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”

Lisa Nishimura, Netflix vice president of original documentary programming, said Avery and Dassey’s experiences provided a “unique lens” into the criminal justice system. 

She said: “We’re thrilled to be continuing our longstanding relationship with the filmmakers, and look forward to giving our global viewers eagerly anticipated updates on this story.”

Making A Murderer aired on Netflix in December last year and provoked a huge emotional response among viewers, with 500,000 people signing a petition asking that Avery be pardoned.

The show won six Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Series.
