Ryan Murphy’s Monster is set to have two more seasons, each featuring a different serial killer, following the massive success of season 1, which starred Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer. The show garnered significant attention, leading to Peters being awarded Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie in 2022.
There are numerous details to consider, such as the premiere date for season 2 of Monster and which serial killer it will be based on, as well as how the show has evolved since the conclusion of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
Despite facing controversy, Monster on Netflix has been renewed twice due to its large viewership. The show delved deeper into the murders committed by serial killers and featured detailed documentation of some of the killings. While there is still little information about the upcoming season 2 of Monster, some hints suggest what might be in store.
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Season 2: What We Know
According to Netflix’s Tudum website, the show has been renewed for two additional episodes and will evolve into an anthology series that will explore the lives of other infamous figures who left a mark on society.
While there is no information yet on which monsters will feature in the next two installments, a news article from MovieMaker in November noted that neither Ryan Murphy nor Netflix had made any official announcements.
Actor Evan Peters has declared that he will not be taking on any more roles as serial killers after his portrayal of Jeffrey Dahmer in the Netflix series Monster. This decision includes the school shooter he played in the first season of American Horror Story, a show also created by Ryan Murphy.
In an interview with Variety in December, Peters stated that he plans to take a break from darker roles and explore lighter characters that are closer to everyday life, in order to delve into the nuances of those types of situations.
Plotline Of Dahmer Season 2
Season 2 of Monster, the Netflix series, could potentially focus on a range of serial killers, with some being more probable than others. The Plainfield Ghoul, also known as Ed Gein, could be a potential suspect, given that he was mentioned in the first season. John Wayne Gacy, a well-known serial killer, was also featured in the first season and could be another potential focus for season 2.
During the premiere of the first season of Monster, the documentary Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes was also on Netflix’s Top 10 list. Other serial killers who have been featured in Netflix’s real crime documentaries, such as Edmund Kemper, could also potentially be the subject of season 2.
Given that serial killers have existed throughout history, Netflix has numerous potential subjects to choose from for season 2 of Monster. The infamous Ted Bundy is one well-known serial killer who could be a possible focus for the second season.
