"Making a Murderer" will return next month.

"Making a Murderer" sets a release date for season two

If you can believe it, it's been almost three years since Netflix's true crime documentary hit "Making a Murder" took over the internet and put Manitowoc on the pop cultural map – and now the wait is over for the second season, as Netflix today announced that part two will hit the streaming service Friday, Oct. 19.

Netflix teased the new season this morning with a brief trailer posted on Twitter, featuring no new footage or details.

The second season of the show, much like the first go-around, will follow the legal teams of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, as well as their families, as they attempt to prove both men were wrongfully convicted of the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. Since the first season, there's been much online discussion over possible other suspects, troubling evidence against Avery left out of the documentary and how much people really gravitated toward Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, Avery's original defense lawyers in the first season.

New to this set of episodes is Katherine Zellner, Avery's new post-conviction lawyer, as well as Dassey's post-conviction lawyers Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin.

Will the show be as big of a hit as the first time around? Will there still be any surprises or drama left for the documentary, considering the Avery and Dassey cases have been heavily reported on since the first season of "Making a Murderer"? I guess we'll all find out next month when we all skip sleeping for a night and binge the new episodes.
