The next installment of Netflix’s true crime documentary, Making a Murderer, has begun filming. The second season will be titled, Convicting a Murderer. Released in 2015, but shot over a 10 year period, the show followed the story of Steven Avery, a man who spent 18 years of his life in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Once released he soon found himself in a much more dire situation, being accused of murder.
The next part of the series will try to bring in some of the law enforcement officials who were unavailable to participate in the first season. Shawn Rech will direct the 8-episode second season.
Rech said the following in a press release:
“When ‘Making A Murderer’ was produced, many on the law enforcement side of the story could not, or would not, participate in the series, which resulted in a one-sided analysis of the case. This docu-series will examine the case and the allegations of police wrongdoing from a broader perspective. It will also share with viewers the traumatic effects of being found guilty and vilified in the court of public opinion.”
The show had me hooked from the first episode, if I remember correctly, I binged the show over the course of a few days. I am interested to see a more broad account of the allegations against law enforcement, because in my opinion the first season made the Manitowoc Sheriffs Department look pretty dirty. Their lack of participation also doesn’t bode well for their accountability. There appeared to be a lot of fishy stuff going on, especially the coercion of Steven Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also charged in the same murder as Avery.
