(Newser) – The Supreme Court may have declined to hear Brendan Dassey's appeal this summer, but come October, the people will hear more of his side of the story. Netflix will drop part 2 of its Making a Murderer docuseries on Oct. 19, reports People, returning to Dassey and uncle Steven Avery's convictions in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach in Wisconsin. The original episodes debuted in December 2015; the AP notes the 10 new episodes go live on Dassey's 29th birthday.

As for what to expect, series creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos have this to say: "Building on Part 1, which documented the experience of the accused, in Part 2, we have chronicled the experience of the convicted and imprisoned, two men each serving life sentences for crimes they maintain they did not commit." The Hollywood Reporter adds that the sequel episodes will feature a new face: Avery's post-conviction lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, who is on a quest to prove his innocence and has, per the Reporter, "reversed more wrongful convictions than any other private attorney in the country." Dassey's post-conviction lawyers will feature as well. (Read more Steven Avery stories.)
