After an almost three-year wait, Netflix has finally released footage from the follow-up to Making a Murderer.

The trailer for Part 2 begins where the last season of the hit documentary series left off. Steven Avery, the subject of season one, reflects on the phenomenon of the show, telling the filmmakers that he "didn't think all of these people would care" about his story. The original run of episodes traced the trial of Avery, a Wisconsin man once exonerated after being wrongfully convicted of a crime, for a second crime he says he didn't commit. It ended with his conviction of murder.

Now, Part 2 introduces viewers to Avery and Dassey's appeal lawyers, who say in the new footage that they're up against "an entire system that favors the prosecutors." There will once again be interviews with Avery and his family, although don't expect a happy ending, as Avery was denied a motion for a new trial last year, and an appellate court upheld Dassey's conviction.
