Fans are now waiting for the coming of Making a Murderer Season 2, especially now that the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are getting really intense. It looks like the second installment of the documentary television series will feature major twist and turn of events as state lawyers have something to say about the younger convicted.
A number of state attorneys disputed in a court filing that Dassey's confession was voluntary and he should not be freed from prison as opposed from a judge's order, according to ABC News. To recall, he told the detectives before that he lent a hand to his uncle upon raping and killing their victim Teresa Halbach in the latter's family home in Manitowoc County.
He was then convicted for a lifetime imprisonment in 2007. However, a federal magistrate judge reversed Dassey's verdict in August believing that the ruling investigators persuaded the offender to confess. Will this side of the story be explored in Making a Murderer Season 2?
Dassey was just 16 years old when the interrogation happened. Hence, the judge concurred that the examiners put pressure on him and took advantage of his youth and confusion.
However, Attorney-General Brad Schimel, solicitor-general Misha Tseytlin and deputy solicitor-general Luke Berg said that his claims have no grounds. In fact, they revealed that he gave far more details than needed and that were never suggested by the examiners.
Meanwhile, People reported that the filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos confirmed their return to explore the cases of Avery and Dassey in Making a Murderer Season 2 after the success of its first installment. In a statement revealed by Netflix, it said that the new 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."
