Both Avery and Dassey have fought vigorously to overturn their convictions - to varying degree of success.

Following its release in December 2015, the 10-part series became a seismic television phenomenon that dominated discussion as the world was introduced to the story of Steven Avery.

The highly-anticipated second installment of "Making a Murderer" has an official Netflix premiere date, the streaming giant announced Tuesday.

Making a Murderer Part 2 is a Synthesis Films Production.

Part 2 introduces viewers to Kathleen Zellner, Avery's post-conviction lawyer, as well as Dassey's post-conviction lawyers Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin with Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth.

The hugely popular series followed the journey of Steven Avery from DNA exoneree and reformer to convicted murderer. Following his release, Avery filed a civil lawsuit against Mantiwoc County for $36 million (£27.3 million), which was still pending when he was arrested in connection to Halbach's murder. Avery insists police framed him.

The wands are out in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald 's final trailer - and so too are a couple of big surprises. If you wanted to cut a trailer to appeal to the hardcore Harry Potter fans, this would be it.

Halbach's remains were found in the Avery family's Manitowoc County salvage yard.

Since the first series aired there have been numerous developments in the case. Ricciardi and Demos follow Zellner, who has righted more wrongful convictions than any private attorney in America, as she tirelessly works the case and uncovers unexpected evidence about what may have happened to Teresa Halbach and about how and why the jury convicted Steven of her murder. However, a court of appeals subsequently overturned the decision, maintaining that Dassey's confession was in fact voluntary.

The clip features audio of someone saying, "Once someone is convicted, they have to move mountains to get out of prison", and another voice adding, "When you're fighting for your innocence, and you need the truth out, it takes time".

Avery has also experienced similar rejections in recent years. In 2016, a judge granted Avery's request allowing scientific testing to proceed in his case, but past year, his request for a new trial was denied.

According to Digital Spy, she said: "It does not matter how long it takes, what it costs or what obstacles we have to overcome - our efforts to win Mr Avery's freedom will never stop".
