One of the most controversial docu-series’ to come out this year was the Netflix original “Making a Murderer” which follows the case of Steven Avery, who was wrongly accused of rape and murder and jailed for nearly two decades before being re-jailed for another crime; this time, murder.
There have been multiple updates to come out from this situation since then, including Avery’s lawyer being hopeful about proving his innocence to there possibly being a movie made about the case. While those two things have not happened yet, Netflix will be releasing Season 2 of the smash hit series very soon.
“From our perspective this story is obviously not over. It’s real life and (Avery and Brendan Dassey’s) cases are both still pending,” directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos told audiences at a Stranger Than Fiction panel discussion in New York on Thursday.
However, not everyone seems to be too excited about this story. Many believe that the two directors have made the entire state of Wisconsin look bad, not just Manitowoc County.
It’s pretty clear that Ricciardi and Demos won’t be welcomed back to the town with open arms. Avery’s civil lawyer, Stephen Glynn, even talked about it being a bad idea to continue the show.
“The theory is that they have played Wisconsin unfairly,” he said. “But among those people who think and are a little more educated and thoughtful about these sorts of issues, there is appreciation.”
