In case you've been under a rock, Netflix’s 10-episode true crime series profiled Avery, a Wisconsin man who was released from prison after 18 years when DNA evidence proved he didn’t commit a brutal attack.

Then, Avery found himself entangled with the criminal justice system yet again when he was convicted for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.

His nephew Brendan Dassey was also convicted.

After the show aired, people became obsessed with the case. Lawyer crushes emerged, fans tweeted like crazy, and conspiracy theories materialized in the form of one very active subreddit.


During a panel discussion at New York's IFC Center, directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said that they have talked to Avery's new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, about potentially filming upcoming interviews with him, according to Variety.

Ricciardi said that "from our perspective, this story is obviously not over."

"It's real life and [Avery's and Dassey's] cases are both still pending," she said, according to Variety. "We have no idea when the magistrate will make a decision in Brendan's case. We do know that two potential outcomes are that the judge could order Brendan's release or he could order a new trial."

"There is a lot of hostility toward these two women in Wisconsin," said Avery's civil lawyer Stephen Glynn, who also participated in the panel, according to Variety. "The theory is that they have played Wisconsin unfairly. But among those people who are more thoughtful about these sorts of issues, there is appreciation."
