Netflix CEO on Making a Murderer: 'We're not talking about a second season'

Netflix's true-crime docudrama Making a Murderer has become an unlikely sensation, prompting dedicated binge-watchers to beg for more digging into the still-ongoing case of convicted murderer Steven Avery. But whatever happens with Avery's case in the real world, the Netflix series that chronicled his legal history is over for the foreseeable future.

"There's no idea for a second season, there's no pitch for a second season; we're not talking about a second season," said Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, adding that media figures like Nancy Grace have picked up the story where Making a Murderer left off.

Still, Sarandos says there's a chance Making a Murderer could come back in one form or another someday; when asked if Netflix might be interested in more of the series, he said, "For sure."
