Making a Murderer Part 2 is slated to launch Friday, October 19, on the streaming service and will cover a whole new chapter in the story of Steven Avery, who went from "DNA exoneree and reformer to convicted murderer."

Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the Midwest, where they have unlimited access to defendants Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey.

From Amanda Knox to JonBenét Ramsey and O.J. Simpson, audiences can’t get enough of real-life murder mysteries.

Similar to its first run, Making a Murderer Part 2 will span 10 episodes and focus on Avery and Dassey's convictions as they maintain their innocence in the murder of Teresa Halbach.

In this chapter of the story, though, the focus will be aimed at the post-conviction process, featuring interviews with Avery's and Dassey's lawyers Kathleen Zellner, Laura Nirider, and Steven Drizin.

"Steven and Brendan, their families and their legal and investigative teams have once again graciously granted us access, giving us a window into the complex web of American criminal justice," said executive producers, writers and directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos in a statement.

"Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused," they continued," in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit. We are thrilled to be able to share this new phase of the journey with viewers."

What will unfold along the 10-episode journey? We're sure viewers will be binging to find out.
