Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey's cases gained national attention after Netflix aired Making a Murderer. In the preview, prominent defense attorney Kathleen Zellner has taken on Avery's case amid an outpour of support from fans who tuned in for Season 1.

Season 2, which consists of 10 new episodes, finds filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos returning to the midwest for exclusive interviews with Avery, Dassey, their families and the legal teams fighting on their behalf.

"Making a Murderer Part 2" will be released on Netflix Oct. 19. We see the new lawyers and defence investigators combing the evidence to unpick the authorities' convictions, as well as the effect that the series phenomenon has had on the men's families and the division it has created in the city of Manitowoc.

Avery is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Avery's nephew, Dassey, who has learning difficulties, was also convicted in connection with the murder, based primarily on a confession he made while under interrogation. Following his release, Avery filed a civil lawsuit against Mantiwoc County for $36 million (£27.3m), which was still pending when he was arrested in connection to Halbach's murder. A petition asking the president to pardon Avery received 500,000 signatures, and the White House released a statement explaining the president can not pardon people convicted of a state crime. Dassey has argued detectives coerced him into confessing that he helped Avery rape and kill Halbach.

"This is critical, there's an abundance of new evidence", Zellner continues.

According to Digital Spy, she said: "It does not matter how long it takes, what it costs or what obstacles we have to overcome - our efforts to win Mr Avery's freedom will never stop".
