Netflix’s Making a Murderer captivated audiences as it detailed the verdicts of Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. With Dassey’s conviction overturned and Avery expected to file for another appeal soon, it’s no surprise that the series has been renewed for a second season. So what can we expect from the show moving forward? Here are five possible updates we may see in Making a Murderer Season 2:
1. A possible alternate suspect
Many Making a Murderer viewers have questioned why police never looked into anyone else (such as Halbach’s ex-boyfriend or a serial killer in the area at the time) as possible suspects for Halbach’s murder. Audiences can definitely expect Zellner to expand on this point in Season 2. Earlier this year, the lawyer herself used social media to hint that she was close to identifying an alternate suspect for the case.
