The first season was released in the year 2015 and after three years makers decided to release the second season. There is still no official announcement from the makers or Netflix.

Making A Murderer Season 3 Story

The show revolved around Steven Avery, who was in prison for the last 18 years (1985-2003) for the wrongful conviction of assault and attempt murder of Penny Beerntsen. He was, then, charged in 2005 and sentenced in 2007 for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

The first season, mainly, shows the years between 1985 and 2007. These years follow Avery’s 1985 arrest and conviction and his release in 2003. Then, his custody in 2003 and conviction in 2005. It portrays the detention, custody, conviction, trial prosecution, and arrest of Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey on the allegations of pressure and lawyer clumsiness.

The second season portrays later years of Avery’s and Dassey’s convictions and focuses on their families. The investigation discovers Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s new lawyer who supports him telling him that he is honest. He argued that Avery was being framed for the murder and he is innocent. He was forced by the prosecutors to confess and this violated his constitutional rights.

According to us, the third season will start where it left at the end of season 2. In the last season, we saw that Avery and Dassey were in jail. So, we might get to see courtroom drama as their lawyers and advisors will try to save them.
