Contemporary culture’s fascination with serial killers continues, and the latest entry into the storied subgenre of “famous actors playing insane killers” is Ryan Murphys Dahmer – Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer. However, this is not a docuseries (coming in October with the latest season of Conversations with a Murderer with a focus on Dahmer) but a well-acted and impressively shot drama in which longtime Murphy collaborator Evan Peters plays the infamous Milwaukee monster, which is almost a live reading of his Wikipedia page.
But by focusing on the killer’s victims, this series confuses humanity with a dark, torturous aesthetic that really focuses on the suffering of the young men Dahmer is targeting. Despite that lurid hook, the show will invariably deliver insane numbers for Netflix, meaning people will be interested in its future. Here’s everything we know.
Extended or canceled – will Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story Season 2 exist?
The limited series was always meant to be a one-and-done affair. It charts the entire course of Dahmer’s life and crimes, building up to his death in prison along with the sense of closure that comes with it. There’s no room for the series to really move forward as well as it works for the streamer.
The concept has many miles, however, and Ryan Murphy has never come across an idea that he couldn’t take full advantage of. Talented actors in Murphy’s circle playing everyone from Ted Bundy to John Wayne Gacy – who appears in the finale of this series; John Carroll Lynch is probably on the phone as I type this – for perhaps lesser-known psychos, it seems like an idea Netflix and the large potential demographic would certainly be interested in.
We have to wait. Anyway, a mainstream audience’s appetite for the macabre practically guarantees that while we may not see another season of this show, we’re likely to see a very similar one sooner rather than later.
You can stream Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story exclusively on Netflix.
