(SPOT.ph) We're a week into November, but that doesn't mean the leftover horrors from Halloween have all run out. Case in point: Netflix has just announced that there will be a follow-up to their new series Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. However, it won't be your standard sequel following the events of the original, because [redacted]—uh, spoiler alert?—dies at the end of the first season.
The Ryan Murphy-produced crime series will instead be transformed into an anthology series under the "Monster" title. Here's everything we know.
Netflix's Dahmer is officially renewed for a second and third season
Deadline reports that Netflix has renewed Dahmer for a second and third season, with each season telling a different story "of other monstrous figures who have impacted society”.
The move is not at all surprising, given that Dahmer is Netflix's second most-watched English-language series, just behind Stranger Things, and fourth most-watched series in general, behind Squid Game and Money Heist. (Forbes) And all those series have been turned into lucrative franchises as well.
This won't even be the first anthology series from series co-creator Ryan Murphy, the man behind the television shows American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and Feud.
The report also dropped the news that Netflix's The Watcher, a series that was likewise created by Murphy and Ian Brennan released a mere month after Dahmer, has also been renewed for a second season. While story details are more unclear on that follow-up—given its intentionally ominous ending—it is clear that we're getting a hell of a lot more disturbing content on streaming very soon.
