This article discusses the possibility of Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story Season 2 and its renewed or canceled status. It may contain spoilers.

The fascination for serial murderers in contemporary culture is continuing to grow, with Ryan Murphy's Dahmer — Monster Story taking center stage in October, alongside a new season of Conversations With A Killer focusing on Dahmer. This is not a docuseries, but rather a well-acted and impressively-shot drama in which long-time Murphy collaborator Evan Peters plays the notorious Milwaukee Monster in what is almost a live reading of his Wikipedia page.

This series misunderstands humanity by focusing on the killer's victims, abandoning the show's dark, torture-p**n aesthetic that lays no value on the young men targeted by Dahmer. Despite that lurid hook, people will be interested in the show's future.

Status: Cancelled

The limited series was always intended to be a one-and-done affair. It chronicles Dahmer's entire life and crimes, and continues until his death in prison, with a sense of closure that comes along with it. There is no room for the series to really develop, however well it performs for the streamer.

Nevertheless, the concept is broadened, and Ryan Murphy never saw an idea he couldn't foresee for all its worth. From Ted Bundy to John Wayne Gacy, who appears in the series' conclusion; John Carroll Lynch is probably sat by the phone as I type this, this sounds like a possibility that Netflix and the vast potential demographic would certainly be interested in.

We'll have to wait and see. Either way, a mainstream audience's desire for the macabre practically guarantees that even though we might not see another season of this program again, we'll likely see one very much like it sooner rather than later.

Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story may be streamed exclusively on Netflix.
