THE VP of content production at Netflix, Cindy Holland, announced the return of the documentary series, claiming that "the story is still ongoing".
She continued by revealing that control of release dates is with directors, Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos.
"Laura and Moira are on the ground shooting regularly and working on what the right story is to tell in the next set, so we're deferring to them on when it will be ready," she told USA Today.
The series will continue to follow the gripping case of Steven Avery, his nephew Brendan Dassey, and their alleged involvement in the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.

Avery is also still in prison, despite strong efforts from viewers who believe in his innocence and have signed a petition to free him, which has over 350,000 signatures.
