The show left an impact on the viewers and even was applauded by the critics who said that it is “a spellbinding slow burn that effectively utilizes the documentary format to tell a twisty mystery.”
There is something distressing yet engrossing about watching true crime documentaries. 'Making a Murderer' is an American true crime documentary available on Netflix that is worth binge-watching. The series came on Netflix on December 18, 2015, for the first time. It was written and directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. The show garnered critical acclaim and also erupted in some controversies too.
This show became one of the grittiest of all the true crime shows that aired on Netflix. This show revolves around dealing with the real case of a man called Steven Avery. Fans get to see Avery, who is a DNA exoneree in the middle of exposing the corrupt practices of law enforcement agencies and finds himself stuck in another gruesome crime. It is a testament to the show's research and bravery that led to a formal petition being submitted to the White House, asking for Avery's pardon. Even though it became a huge thing among the people, the White House officially responded that it would not intervene in the case as “the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense.” The show left an impact on the viewers and even was applauded by critics who said that it is “a spellbinding slow burn that effectively utilizes the documentary format to tell a twisty mystery.” After the second season that came on Netflix on October 20, 2018, fans want to know about the third installment.
The first season came on December 18, 2015, and the second season premiered on Netflix on October 20, 2018. Even though there hasn't been any official announcement regarding season 3, looking at the fact that season 2 left fans with several unanswered questions, we can hope for the third season to give the answers. We can also consider the popularity of the show that was gained for its renewal. However, as of this update, there is still no official renewal confirmation for 'Making a Murderer' Season 3, and no release date has been announced.
During a recent chat with the Cosmopolitan UK, Ricciardi and Demos said: "Maybe [there could be a third season]... I heard that documentaries come in tens!"
If the third season really happens, then we will most likely see both Drizen and Nirider returning following their adamance to continue working with Dassey. Dassey and his uncle Steven Avery who is charged with a first-degree murder conviction, will be returning for season three. Another one to come back could be Avery's lawyer Kathleen Zellner after she made it big in season 2. Another major person in season 2 was Brendan's brother Bobby, whose computer hard drive led Zellner to claim he was a suspect. Teresa Halbach's ex-boyfriend Ryan Hillegas may also appear having been brought up by Zellner in season two. Steven Avery's parents, Dolores and Allan, could also make an appearance.
Fans are uncertain about the future of the prisoners, which remains unclear with both their legal teams working hard behind the scenes to free their clients. Both Dassey and Avery remain incarcerated, and it is likely that season three will continue to follow their quest for freedom. The third season will also feature interviews with law enforcement, family members, lawyers, and experts. Making A Murderer season three may also respond to the spin-off documentary Convicting A Murder.
