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.

In the promo released Tuesday (and embedded above), Steven Avery gets another chance to prove his innocence, particularly after Season 1 of Making a Murderer triggered major public interest in his case.

Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey's cases gained national attention after Netflix aired Making a Murderer.

Now, Avery has enlisted the high-powered help of attorney Kathleen Zellner. "I have one goal and that is to overturn the conviction of Steven Avery", Zellner says in the trailer.

"Steven and Brendan, their families and their legal and investigative teams have once again graciously granted us access, giving us a window into the complex web of American criminal justice", filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said in a statement. The new season will offer up an in-depth look at the post-conviction process and the emotional toll it takes on those involved. Avery and Dassey are serving life sentences in that killing. Dassey, in particular, recently hit a brick wall in his quest for freedom this summer when the Supreme Court refused to hear his case, so it will be interesting to see what bearing this new evidence could have on both cases.

In late 2015, Netflix released Making a Murderer, an incredibly popular true crime documentary which explores the possibility that two men in Wisconsin were wrongly convicted of murder and sent to prison for a crime they did not, in fact, commit.
