Making a Murderer Creators Talk Appeal of Brandon Dassey’s Conviction Overturn


After four Creative Arts Emmy wins, the creators of Making a Murderer discussed the State of Wisconsin’s appeal of Brandon Dassey’s conviction being overturned. Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos spoke to the press (via Variety):  “As many of you know, Brendan Dassey’s conviction was overturned, and just last Friday, Wisconsin filed notice of appeal,” said Demos. “This is just part of the process. This is justice at work and we will continue to document that. It’s a very trying time for all the families involved on both sides to continue to have this unresolved and ongoing, but that’s sort of how justice works, so we’ll continue to follow it.”

A second season of Making a Murderer is on the way. It will explore Steven Avery and Dassey’s appeal of their convictions. “Our plans for additional episodes, the story is clearly not over. Things are happening and we’re following those events as they unfold. As you follow things as they’re unfolding, you can’t predict the future… but that’s part of the process.”, Ricciardi said of the upcoming new episodes.
