Prosecutor Ken Kratz argued that the series didn't provide a balanced or fair account of the case, even releasing his own book entitled, Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery And What "Making A Murder" Gets Wrong.

Netflix released the nearly 3-minute trailer for the true-crime documentary series on Tuesday, and life is looking intense for Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey.

Ricciardi and Demos also follow Dassey's post-conviction lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin with Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, as they fight in federal court to prove their client's confession was involuntary, a fight that could take Brendan's case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

That's the word from the new trailer for Making a Murderer, which returns to Netflix on October 19. The two-and-a-half-minute clip introduces Kathleen Zellner, the new lawyer fighting to free Steven Avery, who was convicted for a murder that the series suggests he did not commit.

Making A Murderer told the story of Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, who were convicted for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. Avery and Dassey are now serving life prison sentences for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

The trailer ends with Avery saying he wants to get out of prison and take care of his parents.

Halbach's remains were found in the Avery family's Manitowoc County salvage yard.

Making a Murderer has proved popular with viewers and is credited - along with The Jinx and Serial - with kindling a global interest in the true-crime genre.

Cue the dramatic music, courthouse montages and teases of potential new evidence that could break open the whole case.
