Since Netflix released Making a Murderer, Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey’s story has moved on somewhat, the latter being freed after his homicide conviction was overturned.

With the show being such a hit, the streaming service is keen to release a second season chronicling the story’s evolution, particularly the involvement of the new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner.

Speaking about Making a Murderer season two on USA Today, Netflix's VP of original content, Cindy Holland, said: “The story is still ongoing, so you will see new episodes coming sometime this year as this story continues to unfold. We don’t know when for sure new episodes will be coming.”

While there was no announcement of an actual due date, Holland revealed that even Netflix employees are being kept in the dark about what’s happening.

She continued: ”Laura and Moira [filmmakers] are [in Manitowoc] shooting regularly and working on what the right story is to tell in the next set, so we’re deferring to them on when it will be ready.

“Very few people inside of Netflix actually know the details of what we’re getting because we’re wanting to keep it really under wraps and it is an ongoing case so we’re trying to be sensitive to that.”

So, what can we expect from a second series of Making a Murder? Read everything we know so far, here.
