[Filmmakers] Laura and Moira are (in Manitowoc) shooting regularly and working on what the right story is to tell in the next set, so we’re deferring to them on when it will be ready.
Very few people inside of Netflix actually know the details of what we’re getting because we’re wanting to keep it really under wraps and it is an ongoing case so we’re trying to be sensitive to that.
If you have never seen the show, then here is a quick recap.
The documentary tells the story of Steven Avery, who made headlines after a false conviction of rape, which caused him to spend 18 years behind bars. After declaring his innocence thanks to DNA evidence, he then decides to sue the state. Not for the money, but to help others in situations like his to avoid such an outcome.
Roughly halfway through the process, young photographer Teresa Halbach goes missing. As it turns out, the last time she was seen was on Avery’s property, which ultimately revealed that he was behind her disappearance.
However, his nephew Brendan Dassey made a shocking confession to police, claiming he and his uncle raped Teresa, stabbed and slit her throat, and then set her on fire in the burn pit. Still, the documentary explores the possibility that Dassey was pressured to give a false statement.
In fact, the sixteen-year-old has notable learning difficulties. Therefore, convincing Dassey to admit to such an act wouldn’t take much effort.
On the other hand, there are zero traces of his DNA in any area of the crime scene. The only evidence that links him to the vicious attack is the confession itself.
Despite Avery’s defense, which claims someone setup the evidence, both men are as of now guilty. However, during August Brendan’s conviction was overturned but the appeals court blocked his release. Nevertheless, season two should answer a lot of questions that viewers are dying to know.
