The MEG experiment, designed to search for the $\mu\rightarrow e \gamma$ decay, completed data-taking in 2013 and set an upper limit on the process $\leq 4.2 \times 10^{-13}$ 90% C.L. In order to increase the sensitivity reach of the experiment by an order of magnitude to the level of i$6\times 10^{-14}$, an upgrade, known as MEG II, which involves substantial changes to the experiment, has been undertaken. After giving an overview of the published MEG result, I present the motivation for the upgrade and a detailed overview of the design of the experiment and commissioning status.
