The USA has no shortage of infamous serial killers for Ryan Murphy to choose from for the next two seasons of Monster.

From Ted Bundy to the BTK Killer, we’re sure Murphy will cook up something uniquely creepy and terrifying that other adaptations haven’t achieved before.

Taking into consideration that the series was renewed at the end of 2022 and with no word on when or where filming will begin for the second season it is safe to assume we’ll be waiting a while for the release of Monster season 2 on Netflix.

Top Boy (Season 5) N

Episodes: TBA
Runtime: 60 Minutes | Language: English
Predicted Netflix Release Date: 2024

The revival of the popular British crime drama saw the series return after a 6-year hiatus in 2019. Three years later, in 2022, the eagerly awaited fourth season was released.

With renewal confirmed for a climactic final season, we could see the series return as early as 2023, however, given the gap between the previous seasons, we would expect Top Boy season 5 to arrive sometime in 2024.

Cast: Sofia Vergara, Alberto Guerra, Camilo Jiménez Varón, Vanessa Ferlito, Alberto Ammann

Sofia Vergara takes on the role of the infamous Colombian drug lord of the Medellin Cartel, the Black Widow aka Griselda Blanco.
