It's the show that gripped the audience and nation with its evidence, twists and turns. "Making a Murderer" went on to win six Emmy awards nominations including Outstanding Documentary or Non-series. The series was incredibly gripping, leaving viewers trying to figure out the innocence of a once imprisoned man who, due to science and DNA, was cleared and released after 18 years of imprisonment

Fans of the show have been wanting to know if a new season will be commissioned, with the latest news of a rehearing for now 27-year-old Brendan Dassey. At the time of airing the 17-year-old was charged with being an accessory to murder.

Each time a hearing is brought to the media’s attention fresh hope is reawakened and gossip stirs as to whether we get to see what happens next.

Guilty or not guilty

After the show’s success, both Steven and Brendan have fresh new legal proceeding that has led people to believe in their innocence. Season two will follow on and report on where the cases stand today. Brendan, in particular, has made numerous appeals go to court after a federal magistrate judge ruled that he was in fact coerced into a false confession.

In June, a court panel sided with the judge’s decision that Brendan was in fact forced into a confession, and ordered that he be released within 90 days. However, the Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel requested Brendan be kept behind bars at least until the next review.

For reasons, still unknown the appeal court sided with Schimel and to this day Dassey is still incarcerated in a correctional institution in Wisconsin.

The next chapter

The new season audiences will be introduced to Steven’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner who is in charge of overturning his conviction. Her past record is quite impressive as she overturned 17 conviction's in the past, Zellner also claimed that she knows who really killed Teresa Halbach.

“I’d say there’s one, leading the pack by a lot. But I don’t want to scare him off, I don’t want him to run,” she said when speaking to the press in March.

The ‘second chapter will follow the next steps of what is happening with Steven who is trying to get his Case to a hearing for an early release. He dismissed his previous lawyers for not doing their job properly.

The last episode saw him proceed to take on the case himself.

Many believe Steven was set up by the county police after he won his settlement of wrongful conviction regarding his 18-year imprisonment. However, others believe the show failed to highlight Steven's previous criminal violent convictions.

Since the show, many have given varying accounts of what they believe to be right or wrong. Whatever the outcome, it's made viewers hooked as they are trying to come to their own conclusion on what really happened.
