Netflix is turning its serial killer hit into an anthology series
Get ready for more contentious portrayals of serial killers and their victims in dramatisations. Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan’s smash hit series Monster has received two more seasons on Netflix.
The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’s first season, Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, has garnered the second-highest number of English-language Netflix viewers ever. To build on this success, Netflix is adapting Monster into its own version of American Crime Story, Murphy’s other popular true crime adaptation anthology series. (Netflix has also ordered a new season of The Watcher, another popular real crime series created by Murphy and Brennan.)
There is currently no information known regarding the subject matter, cast members, or release date of Seasons 2 and 3 of Monster. But we are aware of a a little, and we can make some further conjectures.
Who will Monster Season 2 be about?
On November 7, Netflix renewed Monster for Seasons 2 and 3 as well as The Watcher for Season 2. According to Netflix, “the upcoming episodes of Monster will recount the story of other horrible characters who have touched society.”
We have no idea! Extremely ambiguous is “monstrous figures who have had an impact on society.” Future seasons might easily feature John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez, Ted Bundy, or even the original Monster, Aileen Wuornos if Murphy and his partners decide to stick with the legendary serial killer theme.
Monster Season 2 Release Date
Although a release date hasn’t been set, Murphy is a prolific writer and this is a popular program, so it wouldn’t surprise us if it returned to the internet within a year and a half of the formal renewal. Having stated that,
There isn’t really a pattern to be inferred from the intervals between American Crime Story seasons, which span from just under two years to almost three and a half years. All we can do is wait and see.
Monster Season 2 Trailer
We’re a long way from a trailer, but it will be here when it’s ready.
A season about Lee Boyd Malvo and John Allen Muhammad, the so-called “D.C. Snipers,” who murdered 10 people during a terrifying rampage in Maryland and Virginia in 2002, seems like the ideal follow-up to Dahmer if Ryan Murphy wants to continue exploring themes of race, sexual identity, and violence and remains unafraid to court controversy. (Semi-coincidentally, a season of the well-known true crime podcast Monster had Muhammad and Malvo as its subjects.)
Murphy enjoys working, but no one has been cast in Monster Season 2 yet.
We think there will be at least one familiar face from the Ryan Murphyverse somewhere in the cast because he frequently works with the same performers – Dahmer star Evan Peters is a veteran of the American Horror Story series as well as Murphy’s drag ball drama Pose, to give one example.
