'Making a Murderer' Filmmakers Working on a New Season


New episodes of Making a Murderer may be on the way.

Directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos spoke at a Stranger Than Fiction panel in New York on Thursday and revealed that they had conversations with Kathleen Zellner, Steven Avery's new attorney, about continuing to film the process. They also added they are still recording phone calls and conversations they have with Steven Avery. "From our perspective this story is obviously not over," Ricciardi said on Thursday. "It's real life and [Avery's and Brendan 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]." While Ricciardi and Demos are ready to start the new season of Making a Murderer, heading back into production may be a bigger challenge than some may expect. "There is a lot of hostility toward these two women in Wisconsin," Stephen M. Glynn, Avery's civil lawyer who was also on the panel said. "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." Apparently, many media outlets bashed the filmmakers for their portrayal of the crime. "To read an article that calls our integrity into question and more or less accuses us of leaving things out [of the film] when there are 12 factual errors in the first two paragraphs of the article is frustrating," Demos said. "So we just have to sort of disengage from that and try and have more meaningful conversations."
