The creators of Netflix crime-documentary ‘Making A Murderer’, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos have revealed that they’re planning more episodes based on the remarkable murder case.
The 10-part series which debuted in December 2015 became a global phenomenon. The world became fascinated with the case of Steven Avery, a man convicted of murdering freelance photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005. The documentary also charted the related conviction of Steven’s nephew, Brendan Dassey.
Speaking at the Stranger Than Fiction panel discussion in New York the series co-director Ricciardi said: “From our perspective this story is obviously not over.
“It’s real life and (Avery and Dassey’s) cases are both still pending. We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan’s case.
“We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan’s release or he could order a new trial. So we are on the edge of seats about that. To the extent that there are significant developments, we would like to continue documenting this (case).”
However Stephen Avery’s Civil Lawyer, Stephen M. Glynn, said that their return to the town might not be that straightforward due to the reception of the hit documentary.
He said: “There is a lot of hostility toward these two women (Ricciardi and Demos) in Wisconsin.
“The theory is that they have played Wisconsin unfairly. But among those people who think and are a little more educated and thoughtful about these sorts of issues, there is appreciation.”
