Arriving nearly three years after the first season became a worldwide phenomenon, Netflix are going back to Manitowoc County for a further study of the Avery-case after he was convicted of murder.

Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey's cases gained national attention after Netflix aired Making a Murderer. Adding another layer of intrigue to the story, Avery was arrested for the Halbach murder at the same time that he had a $36 million lawsuit against Maintowoc County for a previous wrongful conviction that resulted in him serving 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.

While his legal experts acknowledge they have an uphill battle, Avery's new attorney Kathleen Zellner, who specializes in overturning wrongful convictions, is determined to set her client free, saying in the trailer, "I have one goal, and that's to overturn the conviction of Steven Avery".

Judging by the trailer, it looks like Zellner has uncovered new evidence that could be a turning point in the investigation. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear arguments to overturn the Appeals Court ruling reinstating Dassey's conviction.

Back in September, the streaming giant confirmed the Emmy Award-winning documentary series, which followed Steven Avery's journey in the much-talked-about first season, would be returning to the Midwest to continue the investigation with part two debuting on October 19.
