Get Excited, Making A Murderer Fans; We've Got HUGE News!
Netflix have been very, very busy recently, releasing a slew of original series' starring everyone from Drew Barrymore to Winona Ryder.
But it's the show that inarguably catapulted the streaming service into the content-creating space, the Emmy-nominated documentary series Making A Murderer, that still has a hold on many people - and they want more.
Which is why the internet has exploded with anticipation after Netflix's latest announcement: We're getting more episodes, and we're getting them this year.
"The story is still ongoing, so you will see new episodes coming sometime this year as this story continues to unfold," Netflix's VP of original content Cindy Holland said. "We don't know when for sure new episodes will be coming."
"Laura and Moira [the documentary makers] are on the ground 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."
All we know so far is that the second series will follow both Steven and Brendan's stories post-conviction, focussing on the emotional impact the process has had, and will have exclusive access to both parties' legal representatives.
We. Can't. Wait.
