Remember that void in your life when you reached the end of your Making a Murderer marathon, demanding to know what happens next? Well, it's about to be filled.

Netflix has announced that Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos, who directed and executive produced the original hit documentary series, are in production on new episodes of the program.

According to the streaming giant, "The new instalments will take fans of the acclaimed documentary series back inside the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery, and his co-defendant, Brendan Dassey, as their respective investigative and legal teams challenge their convictions and the State fights to have the convictions and life sentences upheld."

They continue, "This next chapter will provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process, as well as, the emotional toll the process takes on all involved. The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and Dassey’s legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case."

Ricciardi and Demos themselves commented, “We are extremely grateful for the tremendous response to, and support of, the series.  The viewers’ interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.”

The most recent development in the case saw the filing of the appeal, for Steven Avery's conviction for murder to be overturned, pushed back 90 days from its original submission date of 31 May, meaning that it will now be submitted on 29 August - you can read the full details surrounding this move here.

There's no word yet on exactly when the new episodes are coming, but hopefully it won't be too long.
