Making A Murderer Creators Hint A Part Three Could Be On Its Way

Making A Murderer part two only recently hit our screens, filling the huge Manitowoc county criminal justice system hole left in our lives since 2015, but creators have already hinted at the possibility of a third part to the docuseries.

If you haven't already binged the entire series then quite frankly, what are you doing with your life? But, you might want to look away now to avoid spoilers...

During an interview on an Australian radio show, the series creators, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, revealed: "The story is not over."

This is pretty big news for those of us who've followed Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey throughout their journey through their convictions, but they were careful not to give too much away.

When asked by the radio host if a third season was on the way, they simply replied: "All we can say is maybe!"

Although the current outcome of Steven Avery's case remains unknown, the Emmy award-winning creators said they believed he'd be acquitted.

When asked about their hopes for his release, they said: "There's a very good chance, yes."

Ever since Making A Murderer part one hit our screens back in 2015, the story of Steven Avery his nephew, Brendan Dassey, has divided opinion.

Back in 2005, the pair were convicted for the murder of 25-year-old photographer Theresa Halbach, after the prosecution gained a confession from Brendon and found Steven's DNA inside her RAV4, as well as the keys inside Steven's property.

The prosecution claimed the pair raped and killed Halbach, before mutilating her corpse, which was found in a burn pit on Steven's family property.

However, Steven, who was previously exonerated after spending 18 years in prison for a rape he didn't commit, has always maintained his innocence, along with Brendon who it's claimed was 'coerced' into confessing.

Part two takes place in 2016 and follows top US lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, who has successfully exonerated 19 innocent men in the US, agreeing to take on Steven's case.

Steven had previously reached out to Kathleen in 2012, but after watching the docuseries, she got back in touch to say she would take on the case as she had "the experience and ability to get Steven's case exonerated" and vowed to rectify the "extraordinary miscarriage of justice."

She tells the viewers: "The deeper we dig into the Avery conviction, the more evidence we uncover of his innocence.

"It does not matter how long it takes, what it costs or what obstacles we have to overcome - our efforts to win Mr Avery's freedom will never stop."
