Netflix hasn’t ruled out a second season of their wildly popular, and divisive, documentary Making a Murderer which follows the case of Steven Avery wrongly convicted of rape and then charged with the murder of a second woman after his release from jail. The documentary was 10 years in the making, and has seen fits of screen rage directed during viewing, as well as numerous discussions across the Internet arguing Avery’s innocence or guilt.
According to Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, Netflix and the filmmakers are poring over 700 hours of footage and mentioned that “we’ll certainly take a look” at a follow-up to the series.
“It was miraculous turn of events in the last couple of weeks of the year, where it was combination of super-addictive television and the (free) time to watch,” Sarandos said, adding “people were just obsessed with it… I think there must be something genetic in us that we’re natural- born detectives and love to watch these shows. It’s a sense of injustice and a certainly sense of mystery that people really got into.”
