‘Making A Murderer’ Season 2: Makers To Focus On Brendan Dassey Case – Report

Making a Murderer Season 2 has captured the attention of numerous people across the country. The Netflix documentary, which chronicles the conviction of Steven Avery, will be continuing the series with new episodes in the upcoming season.

There has been a lot of talk about the case of Avery, convicted for the 2005 killing of 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. Avery had previously spent 18 years in prison over a sexual assault charge before DNA evidence exonerated him in 2003. At the end of Season 1, viewers were left wondering if Avery committed the crime or not.

The creators of the show, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, spoke about the upcoming season of the show with Time Out. When asked about the developments in the case regarding Brendan Dassey, Avery’s nephew who was convicted as his uncle’s accomplice for Halbach’s murder, Demos highlighted that his case “is where it was when the series finished.”

“[Dassey’s] habeas petition is sitting on the federal magistrate’s desk. Everybody is awaiting the magistrate’s decision on his case,” Demos said. “There’s really no schedule or timetable for it. His lawyers told us they might have one or two days’ notice.”

As quoted by Variety, Ricciardi said the makers do not know when the decision regarding Dassey will be made.

“We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan’s case. We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan’s release or he could order a new trial,” Ricciardi said. “So we are on the edge of seats about that. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this (case).”

Even Making a Murderer’s Jerry Buting said the majority of the questions posed by the public is about the 16-year-old Dassey.

“People are surprised that he was, number one, taken out of class, without an attorney or parents present, the lawyer allowing him to be interrogated by the police, and also his own investigator (who had bias against the defendant), to have him go in and try and basically coerce his client into confessing, telling him how to draw diagrams,” said Buting, as reported by Houston Press.

There is no confirmed release date for season 2 of Making a Murderer. While the previous season ended at the end of the year, it is possible that the new season could have a similar timeline.
