The creators of Making a Murderer, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi have already started working on a new episodes of the critically acclaimed true-crime series.
Since the TV series premiered on Netflix in December, “We’ve had several television conversations with Steven Avery and did record those calls with an eye toward using them in future episodes,” Ricciardi said in a TCA panel Sunday, according to TheWrap
Making a Murderer
centers around the story of Steven Avery, a man who was exonerated for a rape charge after serving 18 years in prison, then he was convicted for the murder of a photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005. He is currently serving a life sentence for that crime.
Ricciardi said that the last time she and Demos spoke with Avery, he didn't want to be a part of the project.“We are we ready to follow things if there are significant developments,” Demos said of Avery’s case. “We will be there. And we are looking at other stories as well.”
Ricciardi also said that she and Demos have not yet decided what other story besides Avery they may want to explore.
“As we know from making this series, it’s a huge commitment that we take very seriously,” she said. “It’s just apparent to us that we need time to think about what we would want to commit ourselves to next.”
Netflix CEO, TEd Srandos, said that the streaming service is considering how to expand the franchise. When asked whether Netflix is going to keep the series going, he responded: “Well, the story is still unfolding, so we’ll certainly take a look at it.”
