Making a Murderer season 3 overview (2022)
Netflix has yet to renew Making A Murderer for a third season. There are the major talking points for the entire season of Making A Murderer and the explanations in the final episode.
Brendan Dassey is still in prison. He was convicted twice by a US Magistrates judge. A panel of three judges from the Seventh Circuit announced that Dassey is still in prison.
Dassey, 29, was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2006. He was sentenced for first-degree murder and second-degree sexual attack. He was 16 years old when he committed the crime.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice appealed his conviction twice. They ruled that he should be heard in banc. En banc meant Dassey’s case was heard by the whole Seventh Circuit, rather than a three-person panel.
“The judges voted 4-3 to confirm Dassey’s conviction, and to overturn the two previous decisions of the Magistrate’s judge and the select panel.”
Seth Waxman, an experienced lawyer, was hired by the legal team to assist with the appeal and legal argument. The Supreme Court, however, rejected the appeal in June 2018.
Season 2 concluded with Dassey’s message: “It means so much to know that there are many people who believe and support me – I’m going back to fight to get home.”
“At this time, Dassey is still in Columbia Correctional Institution. He will not be eligible for parole until 2048. Steven Avery remains in prison, however, he is at Waupun Correctional Institute.”

Why Making a Murderer Season 3 Won’t Happen?
Making a Murderer is a Netflix series that was published originally in 2015. While the series earned several accolades, it also received harsh criticism and backlash from the media, government officials, and the general public for portraying only a single side of the story which is Avery’s tale, revictimizing Halbach and her clan, as well as implicating law enforcement experts.
“I watched ‘Making a Murderer,’ did some research and found out I was lied to,” stated Shawn Rech, showrunner of “Convicting a Murderer” at Transition Studios who also commented that the original program was “just layered and layered all of this nonsense.”
Rech further added, “Making a Murderer was cut to the integrity of a Howard Stern bit.”
Nevertheless, the exact reason is not known on why the series was discontinued. It might be mainly because of the controversies surrounding the series.
