The Netflix original 10-part series told the story of Steven Avery, who is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach.

Her remains were found close to Avery’s home in Wisconsin, which led to his arrest and sentence.

Avery had previously spent 18 years in prison for sexual assault, but was released in 2003 after new evidence came to light proving he was innocent and it was only two years later that he was charged with the murder of Halbach.

The series goes through the story of Stephen Avery’s cases, including interviews with family, police and others related to the cases.

Stephen’s nephew, Brendan was also caught up in the case and is currently serving time as well – however both men maintain their innocence.

Since its release, the series has earned six Emmy nominations and led to the murder case being reopened. It is an extremely popular series and has certainly got people talking about the justice system and policing.

While it’s an incredibly gripping docu-series, it’s also difficult to say you enjoy it as it is about two men who may well be innocent currently sitting in prison. Opinions vary, but many hope that won’t be the case for long.

In a statement on Tuesday, the series producer-directors are said to be working on updates to the series. Focusing on Stephen Avery, 54 and Brendan Dassey, 26 it will follow the story as they continue fight to have their convictions over turned.

‘This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as, the emotional toll the process takes on all involved,’ the statement said.

Brendan’s lawyer has said that his spirits have been lifted by the letters and support he has received and it is that which gives him hope.
