Before ninjas were turtles, 80s action movies, or even Kurosawa films, they were spies and assassins that hid in plain sight — not darting from shadow to shadow in black jumpsuits. From the modern Western conception of the ninja starting in the late 50s and early 60s, the stealthy assassin has gained a huge place in American pop culture, and Vox looks at how ninjas became one of Japan's biggest exports.
Along with The Jinx and Serial, Making a Murderer jumpstarted the true crime genre. The docuseries followed Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey as they underwent the investigation and trial for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Now, nearly three years after its initial release, Netflix is releasing the highly anticipated follow-up. The additional ten episodes will catch up with the pair to document the aftermath that followed their convictions. Season 2 is set to air October 19, 2018.
