Along with Serial and The Jinx, 2015’s Making A Murderer was a key event in the ongoing mainstreaming of true crime, and one of the first Netflix series to really dominate the global water-cooler conversation. Netflix has long promised a second season of the show from filmmakers Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, first announcing their involvement in new episodes back in the summer of 2016. This, well…this is not that.

/Film is among the outlets reporting that a spinoff series to Making A Murderer is in the works called Convicting A Murderer, which will re-tell the story from the perspective of the law enforcement who investigated Steven Avery and the attorneys who prosecuted (and defended) him, with “unprecedented access to District Attorney Ken Kratz, Lead Investigator Tom

Making a Murderer to get follow-up series on Netflix

Netflix phenomenon Making a Murderer is set to get a follow-up series that will explore a different side to the Stephen Avery case.

The first series focused on the murder of Teresa Halbach and tried to uncover whether Steven Avery, who had been convicted for the crime, was really guilty.

The follow-up series Convicting a Murderer will look at district attorney Ken Kratz and other police officers on the ‘law enforcement side of the story’.

In a statement, creator Shawn Rech said that it will ‘take a broader perspective’ on the case.

“When Making a Murderer was produced, many on the law enforcement side of the story could not, or would not, participate in the series, which resulted in a one-sided analysis of the case.

“This docu-series will examine the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective.

 “It will also share with viewers the traumatic effects of

Pritzker lawyers petition for Supreme Court to hear ‘Making a Murderer’ case

Lawyers from the Pritzker School of Law and the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth petitioned Tuesday for the United States Supreme Court to hear the case of their client, Brendan Dassey, according to a news release.

Dassey, who has “intellectual and social limitations,” was convicted in 2007 of assisting his uncle, Steven Avery, in raping and murdering Teresa Halbach, according to the release. Dassey was 16 years old at the time. The release says Dassey’s lawyers, Pritzker Profs. Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin, allege that his conviction was primarily based on a confession during a coercive interrogation.

The case was featured on Netflix’s documentary series, “Making a Murderer.”

The case was later heard and overturned by a Wisconsin federal court, which declared that his confession had been “unconstitutionally coerced,” according to the release.

The ruling was originally upheld in front of a panel of judges from

US Supreme Court asked to review ‘Making a Murderer’ confession

MILWAUKEE — Lawyers for a Wisconsin inmate featured in the “Making a Murderer” series on Netflix asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to review a federal appeals court decision that held his confession was voluntary.

Brendan Dassey’s legal team told the high court in their petition that the case raises crucial issues that extend far beyond Dassey’s case alone and that long have divided state and federal courts.

Dassey’s lawyers claim investigators took advantage of his youth and intellectual and social disabilities to coerce him into falsely confessing that he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005 in the Avery family’s junk yard in Manitowoc County. Dassey was 16 at the time. He was sentenced to life in

‘Making a Murderer’ Case Possibly Headed to Supreme Court

Netflix audiences watching Making a Murderer may be headed to the Supreme Court.

Brendan Dassey, the Wisconsin man who was convicted of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer, has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out his 2005 confession that his attorneys claim was coerced, The Washington Post reports.

“Put simply, the interrogators took advantage of Dassey’s youth and mental limitations to convince him they were on his side, ignored his manifest inability to correctly answer many of their questions about the crimes, fed him facts so he could say what they wanted to hear, and promised that he would be set free if he did so,” said longtime Supreme Court practitioner Seth Waxman. “The resulting confession was more theirs than his.”

Dassey was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 for his role in the murder of Halbach, whose charred remains were discovered on his uncle, Steven Avery’s,
