Making a Murderer Part 2 Trailer: The Truth Gets a Second Look

Created by film-makers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, the documentary series examines the cases of Wisconsin salvage worker Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, who in 2007 were found guilty of first-degree murder in relation to the 2005 death of a photographer, Teresa Halbach. Making A Murderer Part 2 focuses on the reopening of Steven's case and attorney Kathleen Zellner's mission to overturn his sentence. "I have one goal and that is to overturn the conviction of Steven Avery", Zellner says in the trailer. Avery and Dassey are now serving life prison sentences for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. "But the last call pings off a cell phone tower miles away from the Avery property". Zellner has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in the US but faces her greatest challenge yet, uncovering unexpected evidence along the way.

All 10 episodes stream on October 19th, so get ready to get your binge on. As you'll recall, Avery had been wrongfully convicted of sexual assault and was released from prison after serving 18 years - only to be later convicted for the murder of Teresa Halbach, a crime for which he is still behind bars.

The preview goes on to tease new evidence that could help exonerate Avery, as well as more jailhouse conservations with him, his newphew, and their family outside. A petition asking the president to pardon Avery received 500,000 signatures, and the White House released a statement explaining the president can not pardon people convicted of a state crime. A notable example was a 26-year-old woman, who was the victim in a domestic abuse case he was prosecuting, who claimed he sent her more than 30 "sexually coercive" texts. But in December 2017, a court of appeals panel voted in favour of upholding his original conviction, in a vote that was split four to three. The Supreme Court denied Dassey's request for an appeal in June.
