Making a Murderer — the true crime docuseries chronicling convicted murderer Steven Avery’s controversial journey through the legal system — is returning to Netflix for a second season. The streaming service announced the news in a press release Monday, stating that executive producers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are already in production on new episodes.

“The new installments will take fans of the acclaimed documentary series back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld,” the release read. “This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as, the emotional toll the process takes on all involved.”

A release date for the new season has not yet been set.
