Making a MurdererCase not closed ... at least on TV. Netflix has ordered more episodes of "Making a Murderer," the buzzy documentary series that told the story of convicted murderer Steven Avery. The streaming service announced that executive producers/directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos are currently in production on new material.

The first season of "Making a Murderer" consisted of 10 episodes and originally streamed December 18, 2015. It focused on Steven Avery, a man from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, who served 18 years in prison for sexual assault and attempted murder before his exoneration in 2003. Two years later, he was arrested, tried, and convicted of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach. The series also covered the arrest, trial, and conviction of Avery's nephew Brendan Dassey for the murder.

In an official statement, Netflix said, "The episodes will offer exclusive access to Avery's new lawyer Kathleen Zellner and Dassey's legal team, led by Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, as well as intimate access to the families and characters close to the case."

It's unclear when the new episodes will be finished or available to stream.
