Netflix wants second season of Making a Murderer

The story of Steven Avery, who was exonerated after being wrongfully sent to prison for 18 years, only to be jailed again just two years later for murder and is still in prison, has captured the attention of the world through the Netflix 10-part series, Making a Murderer.

Now the documentary's creators, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, say there is potential for a second season and Netflix is very interested.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, Ricciardi said: "I think today marks four weeks since the series launched and in the past four weeks [we've had] several phone calls with Steven Avery, which we have recorded with an eye towards including them in future episodes.

"This story is ongoing, these cases are open," added Demos. "It's real-life so you don't know what's going to happen. If there are significant developments, we will be there. And we are looking at other stories, as well."

Netflix chief content editor Ted Serandos said the TV streaming company is looking to make a second season of Making a Murderer.

"The story is still unfolding, so we'll certainly take a look at it."
