“Making a Murderer” season 2 all about money? A sheriff thinks so. He said the docu-series hardly cares about the truth. It was created to earn profits at the expense of the Halbach family.


County Sheriff Robert Hermann made a quite unpopular statement on Reddit regarding “Making a Murderer” season 2 lately. Considering the show has some solid fans, his speculation are not accepted positively.

Apparently, the Sheriff does not believe that the docu-series is about digging deeper into the area’s criminal justice system. “Are they going to come out with all the facts they didn’t present in the first one?” the sheriff allegedly wrote. “I don’t think that’s the case, the first one has been a terrible injustice to the criminal justice system, law enforcement, our area.”

“It’s nothing about our criminal justice system as they say … it’s about the money they’re making off of this, and it’s at the cost of the Halbach family,” Hermann added. However, several aired their objections over the speculation.

“’MaM’ took 10 years to complete and it was created on spec. The producers were not on salary and they had no contract,” user Whiznot commented. “The project was risky and it could have been a bust. The accusation that the producers were money grubbers is absurd.”

Another commenter, DominantChord claimed that the producers even “worked for free on securing the television feeds for the networks!” Meanwhile, another Reddit user, Bashdotexe, had this to say: “I’m trying to think of a word to describe how absurd his statement is, but it’s just impractical.”

It can be recalled that “Making a Murderer” directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, who are expected to still direct the second season of the web television series, disclosed that they already talked to Kathleen Zellner, Steven Avery’s new lawyer, about the possible extension of the Netflix show.

“From our perspective this story is obviously not over,” Ricciardi said, according to Variety’s “Making a Murderer” season 2 spoilers. “It’s real life and (Avery’s and Brendan Dassey’s) cases are both still pending,” she added.
