Making a Murderer has become a smash hit for Netflix, and one of their only programs that has kept viewers talking about the series for months after they’ve finished watching it. Hell, it’s almost March – the show came out in December and yet we’re still seeing updates on Steven Avery almost every day in the news. From Steven’s new lawyer being more confident than ever that she’ll be able to prove his innocence, to claims that there’ll be a movie based off the show, the hype has never been more real.
As for whether or not we’ll get a season two of the hit series though, it still remains to be seen. According to Metro, while the show’s two creators are keen to film a second season since, in their words, “this story is obviously not over. It’s real life and (Avery and Dassey’s) cases are both still pending,” that doesn’t mean Manitowoc county will be welcoming them back with open arms:
However, it may not be that easy for the pair to return to Wisconsin to begin filming a follow-up.
Steven’s civil lawyer, Stephen M. Glynn, and a fellow panel participant revealed that ‘there is a lot of hostility toward these two women in Wisconsin’.
‘The theory is that they have played Wisconsin unfairly,’ he said. ‘But among those people who think and are a little more educated and thoughtful about these sorts of issues, there is appreciation.’(via)
This should come as no surprise, considering that lead investigators on Avery’s case previously tried to shut down the documentary from being aired before all the footage had even been compiled together. However with any luck both Avery and Dassey will at least get new (and fair) trials, hopefully meaning that making a second season of Making a Murderer will be inevitable.
