Netflix has released the trailer for the highly-anticipated second part of “Making a Murderer,” which will follow Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, as well as their lawyers, post conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

“Making a Murderer” premiered in 2015 and quickly became a worldwide phenomenon.

“Some people feel really bad and sad for what happened to me,” Avery says in the trailer. “I didn’t think all of these people would care.”

Over the course of 10 episodes, “Making a Murderer Part 2” will take a look at the post-conviction process while both Dassey and Avery’s legal teams are trying to overturn the convictions. Plus, the documentary will showcase the emotional toll of the process on everyone involved.

“Our task now is to upend an entire system,” Dassey’s attorney says.

“I have one goal, and that’s to overturn the conviction of Steven Avery,” says Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s lawyer who is famous for overturning wrongful convictions. “There is an abundance of evidence. This could flip the whole case.”

Most recently, Avery was denied a new trial again although Avery’s attorneys sought to supplement the record with a CD they argued contains “exculpatory, material evidence” that was reportedly only disclosed to them in April. Zellner argued that the state failed to disclose the disc and violated his right to a fair trial, therefore arguing for a new trial.

A Federal Appeals court upheld a ruling that Dassey’s confession was involuntary and that investigators violated Dassey’s rights. However, in June, the Supreme Court declined to hear his case.

“Making a Murderer Part 2” will premiere on Netflix on Oct. 19.
