Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the Midwest where they have exclusive access to Steven Avery and his co-defendant and nephew Brendan Dassey, their families and the legal teams fighting for justice on their behalf.
In a joint statement Riccardi and Demos said, "Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit. We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers.”
Viewers will meet a few new faces in Part 2. Most notably, Kathleen Zellner, the Wisconsin native’s’s post-conviction lawyer, as she fights to win Avery’s freedom. According to Netflix, Zellner has “righted more wrongful convictions than any private lawyer in America,” and Part 2 follows her as she “tirelessly works the case and uncovers unexpected evidence about what may have happened to Teresa Halbach and about how and why the jury convicted Steven of her murder”.
