Making A Murderer remains one of the most riveting true crime documentaries ever made. The highly anticipated sequel – which follows the appeal process of convicted murderers Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey – will appear on Netflix on October 19. The first trailer has just dropped and it doesn’t contain any spoilers. Watch it here!
When we said this trailer doesn’t give anything away we weren’t kidding. It’s basically a teaser that highlights how long Avery has been in jail and how much he has aged in the interim.
Many believe that Avery is innocent, with the orgy of evidence against him blamed on alleged police corruption. You will be able to judge for yourself based on the latest investigative findings next month.
In the meantime, here are five other true-crime documentaries that are every bit as good as Making A Murderer. (We especially recommend The Jinx – which explores the murky past of ex-real estate tycoon Robert Durst – and Capturing The Friedmans which we advise going into completely cold.
Alternatively, here are some cracking true crime podcasts if that’s more your thing. Enjoy!
