'Making A Murderer' Creators Tease There Could Be A Season 3

'Making A Murderer' Creators Tease There Could Be A Season 3

WARNING: Contains Making a Murderer season 2 spoilers

Making a Murderer season two has only just hit our screens - continuing to feed our addiction to the politically-driven docuseries - and already the creators of the Netflix show are getting fans excited by teasing there could be a season three on the way.

During an interview on an Australian radio show, Hit 105 FM, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos gave out the cryptic message: "The story is not over."

I know, I know, this is mega, but the creators weren't giving too much away - when the host asked if a third season was on the way, the pair simply replied with: "All we can say is maybe!"

Though the outcome remains unknown, the creators also stated that they think Steven Avery, who the series is based around, will be acquitted. When the Emmy-Award-winning pair were asked about their hopes for Avery's release they said: "There's a very good chance, yes."

Since Making a Murderer hit our screens back in late 2015, it's safe to say the story of Avery and his nephew, Brandon Dassey, has prompted a great deal of debate.

Both were convicted back in 2005 for the murder of Theresa Halbach, with the prosecution's case against the pair including a confession from Dassey, DNA found inside Halbach's RAV4, and a set of keys found inside Avery's property.

The prosecution claimed the pair raped and killed Halbach, before mutilating her corpse, which was found on Avery's property.

However, Avery - who was previously exonerated of a separate crime years earlier - has always maintained his innocence, as has Dassey who says he was coerced into the confession and that he got 'most of the ideas from a book'.

*Spoilers ahead*

Season two kicks off in 2016 where Avrey's friend has managed to bag top US lawyer Kathleen Zellner, who is responsible for exonerating 19 men in the US.

Greenman and Avery actually reached out to Zellner in 2012, however, it wasn't until 2016 that she got back in touch to say she would take on the case as she had 'the experience and ability to get Steve's case exonerated', and vowed to rectify this 'extraordinary miscarriage of justice'. Pretty bold claims.

She told the camera: "The deeper we dig into the Avery conviction, the more evidence we uncover of his innocence.

"It does not matter how long it takes, what it costs or what obstacles we have to overcome - our efforts to win Mr Avery's freedom will never stop."

It really looks like Zellner is prepared to leave no stone unturned in the case to help the two men.
