Netflix is bringing its documentary series Making a Murderer back for another season of making viewers go "hmm" about the American justice system, Variety reports. The new season, which has yet to get a premier date, will continue following Steven Avery and co-defendant Brendan Dassey as they fight their convictions and life sentences. “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," according to Netflix. The first season of Making a Murderer was nominated for six Emmys. “We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series," creators Laura Ricciardo and Moira Demos say. "The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over.” (More Making a Murderer stories.)
