Imagine the nightmare of being interrogated until you admit guilt for a crime you didn’t commit. In its long-awaited second season, Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions examines this true crime phenomenon through the eyes of two of the globe’s leading experts on interrogations: Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin, renowned attorneys, co-directors of Northwestern University’s Center on Wrongful Convictions, and recognized figures from the smash hit Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer. Using their unparalleled, first hand experience, actual interrogation audio, and interviews with leading lawyers, experts, and formerly incarcerated people to tell twelve true stories of false confessions, Laura and Steve invite us onto the front lines along with them to learn not only why people confess to crimes they never committed, but also how the criminal justice system failed to prevent those injustices from turning into years of wrongful imprisonment.

Season 2 begins on Monday, October 5, 2020.
