The trailer teases the introduction of attorney Kathleen Zellner, who hopes to overturn Avery's conviction by taking a closer look at Halbach's death.

The ten-episode series documents the twists and turns in the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey since the conclusion of the first series, which was awarded an Emmy. We see the new lawyers and defence investigators combing the evidence to unpick the authorities' convictions, as well as the effect that the series phenomenon has had on the men's families and the division it has created in the city of Manitowoc.

Making a Murderer returns for Season 2 Friday, Oct. 19 on Netflix.

Part 2 once again follows filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos as they continue to shed insight on the Avery case.

The story of Steven Avery gripped millions worldwide after Making A Murderer premiered in 2015, but the story isn't over. "The prosecution's case was that Teresa never left the property", Zellner states of the new evidence to be brought into question in Part 2.

Ricciardi and Demos also follow Dassey's post-conviction lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin with Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, as they fight in federal court to prove their client's confession was involuntary, a fight that could take Brendan's case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Meanwhile, Dassey, who is now 28, also remains in prison and has served 12 years of his life sentence so far. 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. Dassey has argued detectives coerced him into confessing that he helped Avery rape and kill Halbach.
