At this point, every Netflix user has probably heard of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. There’s no way you could have missed it, whether or not you saw the show. Since its debut, the series has garnered over 934 million viewing hours on Netflix since November 7.
The series is a fictional account of Jeffrey Dahmer‘s life as a murderer and sex offender, as well as the experiences of his victims. Between 1978 and 1991, the serial killer killed and dismembered 17 men and youngsters.
Additionally, several of his murders included cannibalism, necrophilia, and the long-term storage of body parts. Systemic racism and its effects on the police force are partly to blame for the regrettable fact that he got away with the crimes for more than ten years.
There is no denying the success of the Netflix series. Even though the plot was neatly wrapped up, you might question if Netflix has plans for a second season.
Will Netflix release the third season of Monster?
Seasons 2 and 3 of the Ryan Murphy anthology series Monster and Seasons 1 and 2 of The Watcher were both renewed by Netflix on November 7. The two planned new series will “explore the story of other horrific characters who have touched civilization,” according to Netflix.
When Netflix labeled Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story as a limited series, it was doubtful that the show would be renewed. That said, Ryan Murphy was still able to make the show into an anthology, and he did so.
The Dahmer narrative attracted some of the most significant viewership figures that Netflix has ever recorded. In its debut week, Monster managed to draw 196.2 million viewers. As a result, the series has surpassed Stranger Things season 4 and Bridgerton season 2 in popularity on Netflix, moving up to second place overall.
Netflix wanted to stick with the same concept but concentrate on someone else because of its success. Could John Wayne Gacy be involved? It seems redundant to include this serial killer in Monster. However, his inclusion may be making a more profound point. As additional information becomes available, we’ll have to wait and see what occurs in Monster seasons 2 and 3.

Predicted Release Date for Monster Season 2
Although there is no official release date for Monster season 2, several assumptions can be formed based on surrounding information. If Monster season 2 followed the same pattern as Ryan Murphy’s other similar show, American Crime Story, which publishes a new season every two to three years, season 2 might air in 2024 or 2025. However, due to the success of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Netflix is likely looking to capitalize on it. As a result, season 2 of Monster could be released much sooner than expected, most likely in 2023.
