Those who still haven't gotten enough of the case of Steven Avery are in luck.

Netflix announced Tuesday there will be another season of "Making a Murderer" – it will delve into the cases of both Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey.

The two were convicted in the 2005 murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. Both are working to get their life sentences overturned.

The new episodes will "provide an in-depth look at the high-stakes post-conviction process" and the "emotional toll" the process takes on those involved, Netflix says. The series will offer "exclusive access" to Avery's new lawyer Kathleen Zellner, as well as Dassey's attorneys, including Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin.

A release date, as well as the total number of episodes there will be, have not been announced, a Netflix spokesperson told BringMeTheNews.

The first installment of "Making a Murderer," which was filmed over a decade, went over Avery's 2007 trial and questioned the circumstances that led to his arrest and conviction, suggesting Avery was framed by law enforcement in Manitowoc County, and that Dassey was manipulated by his defense team into confessing.

"Making a Murderer" quickly became a Netflix hit and was recently nominated for six Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Series.

Lisa Nishimura, Netflix's vice president of original documentary programming, says the streaming service is "thrilled" to provide updates on Avery and Dassey's story, noting the first season provided a "unique lens" into their experiences and the criminal justice system.
