Renewed Or Cancelled?
Jeffrey Dahmer is a monster and Ryan Murphy’s latest 10 episode series is quite the gripping watch. Across the season, the story dives into the gritty details surrounding Dahmer’s killing spree.
If you’ve finished watching the whole show, you may be wondering if a renewal is on the cards. Here’s what we know:
What is Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story about?
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a revisionist retelling of the story involving the Milwaukee Monster, Jeffrey Dahmer, told from the perspective of victims. Across the show’s run-time, the plot examines the police incompetency that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multi-year killing spree.
Has Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has not been renewed for a second season. Given how well the show is doing for Netflix, that could well change.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Dahmer has been a surprise success for Netflix, with recent reports suggesting the show is performing as strongly as Stranger Things Season 4 did earlier this year.
It’s had a pretty mixed reception with critics but audiences have been far more positive, with the show currently doing a great job hitting the top 10 on Netflix across various regions across the world.
Taking everything into consideration, we’re predicting that Dahmer will not be renewed for a second season. This is the perfect sort of show to binge through but given Murphy’s upcoming slate of shows, it seems unlikely that this one will return.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, the story could continue should the right angle come about or Murphy decides to revisit this one in the future.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will not be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
