IT’S the Netflix series that had true crime fans debating whether or not Steven Avery was a guilty man.
And now Making a Murderer has finally returned for a second season – almost three years after the first.
The new episodes dropped on the streaming service on Friday, with viewers gearing themselves up for a “weekend of binge-watching” the latest trials and tribulations.
This series delves deeper into Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey’s legal fights as they attempt to appeal their convictions.
Since the docuseries brought their case to global attention, Avery hired wrongful conviction attorney Kathleen Zellner.
In the new season, Zellner presents boxes and boxes of evidence as she attempts to prove her client’s innocence.
Meanwhile, some familiar – and arguably unpopular – faces from the previous series also make a reappearance including Dassey’s court-appointed attorney Len Kachinsky and Ken Kratz, the prosecutor in Avery’s case.
Twitter users were keen to waste no more time and dive straight in after Netflix announced the new episodes were available to watch on Friday.
Many quipped that they were prepared to spend their weekend watching all 10 episodes – each of which are around an hour long.
One wrote: “if u need me this weekend don’t bother me lol i’ll be binge watching Making A Murderer.”
Another said: “ummm making a murderer came back with a part 2, catch me in my room binge watching that all weekend k bye”.
Even celebrities wanted a slice of the action – Grammy-winning singer Maren Morris tweeted: “Making a Murderer 2… Bye, Weekend!”
A fan replied saying: “Yup I started at 6:15am. And have been going al day. Get ready to be reinvigorated.”
