Brendan Dassey is escorted into court for his sentencing in Manitowoc, Wis. The Netflix documentary series “Making a Murderer” tells the story of a Wisconsin man wrongly convicted of sexual assault only to be accused, along with his nephew, of killing a photographer two years after being released.

A federal judge in Milwaukee has overturned Brendan Dassey’s conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. Dassey was featured along with uncle Steven Avery in the hit Netflix documentary series, “Making A Murderer,” which came out last year.

Dassey, now 26, was convicted as a teenager, and sentenced to life in prison for first-degree intentional homicide, second-degree sexual assault, and mutilation of a corpse in the killing of Halbach in Manitowoc County.

We will see what this means for the future of the show, which is set to continue on Netflix, though no premiere date has been announced.
