The second season of the docuseries "Making a Murderer" is reportedly returning to Netflix before 2017 ends. No exact launch date has yet been set, but the network's spokeswoman has already confirmed the new season. Unfortunately, further details on what to expect in season 2 were not yet dropped as sensitive topics should not be disclosed.

Netflix's VP and spokeswoman, Cindy Holland, has recently confirmed the renewal of "Making a Murderer." She said that they do not have specific dates yet, but is sure that season 2 will come out by the end of 2017. Holland also gave a short insight about the upcoming season through USA Today, saying: "Very few people inside of Netflix actually know the details of what we're getting because we're wanting to keep it really under wraps."

As per the report, "Making a Murderer" makers, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi, are currently filming in Wisconsin's Manitowoc County. Holland further revealed that the creators of the show are working on the right story to tell in "Making a Murderer" season 2, but details could not be dropped yet as the case is still ongoing. Rest assured, the network will update the followers of the new episodes as soon as the creators had the next set ready.

"Making a Murderer" started with ten episodes in 2015 where the true crime docuseries featured the Halbach Case. The show follows the controversial case of Steven Avery and his nephew Brenden Dassey who claim to be framed for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. The two were convicted back in 2005 and the case hearing is still ongoing.

The first ten seasons of "Making a Murderer" mainly focused on the court trials and eventual conviction of Avery and Dassey. Avery though claims that he is innocent of the crime, while Dassey - who was only 16 years old during his time of confession -- says his judgment was manipulated. As such, both has maintained their claim of innocence and insist that the real killer of Halbach continues to walk free.

Avery's lawyers have been granted their request to run a retest on several pieces of evidence against him, to prove that they were only planted during the investigation. On the other hand, Dassey's conviction has been overturned in August 2016, but still remains in prison after the state appealed that he stays in custody until the case is resolved. The judge then said that he find "significant doubts" about Dassey's confession. Dassey's confession has arguably become the most debated point of "Making a Murderer".
