Making A Murderer to run a second season featuring new evidence, reports say

It's also possible a second juror could come forward on Avery being framed

Reports have emerged suggesting that a second season of 'Making A Murderer' is set to be recorded, and that it will reveal "explosive new evidence."

Since the Netflix series - based on a dubious-looking murder conviction - took off, subject Stephen Avery's case has gained a host of publicity, with the man himself writing from his jail cell to protest his innocence, and prosecution lawyer Ken Kratz promising a tell-all book in which he says he'll prove Avery's guilt.

The Mirror reports on the new series today (January 26), with the report saying that a second juror has come forward, and is prepared to say on record that they believe Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were framed for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.

Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are also reported to have said they have had several phone calls with Avery, with a view to including them in further episodes.

Yesterday (January 25), Avery released a public letter from his jail cell.

Avery wrote the letter, which was published by WISN 12 News, from prison in Wisconsin. Reporter Colleen Henry contacted Avery and received a handwritten note in return which saw him state: "The real killer is still out there."

The letter also contains Avery defending himself against recent allegations made by former girlfriend Jodi Stachowski that he was violent and abusive during their relationship. "How much money Jodi get to talk bad?" he asked, suggesting that she changed her story for financial gain.

Returning to the suggestion that another man is responsible for Halbach's death, Avery asks: "Who is he stalking now?" before adding, "I am really innocent of this case and that is the truth! The truth will set me free!"
