Season 1 of Dirty John has released on Netflix in most regions around the world as a full-fledged Netflix Original but those in the United States won’t be able to find season 1 of Dirty John just yet. However, in late October 2019, Netflix revealed that Netflix US would be getting Dirty John.
Based on the true story of a woman called Debra it’s about her new relationship with a doctor who essentially rips her away from her family. The show is widely considered to be the next best alternative after Netflix picked up YOU from Lifetime several months ago.
Dirty John isn’t a full Netflix Original series
We’ve picked up on this several times before that Netflix carries multiple shows under its Original banner that aren’t quite full Originals. Dirty John fits this description. Netflix carries the show under an international distribution deal.
That means everywhere outside of the United States currently has access to Dirty John season 1 on Netflix.
Dirty Season 1 is coming to Netflix US in November.
With international distribution deals, Netflix US is usually shortchanged but not forever. In most cases, Netflix does eventually get the show in the United States at a later date than the other regions.
That is the case with Dirty John. On October 22nd, Netflix’s See What’s Next account Tweeted the release date.

You can find more of what’s headed to Netflix in November in our coming soon page.
Bravo will likely release season 1 in anticipation of that to allow people who have never watched the show to get up to speed before hopefully tuning in to season 2 which is titled Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story. It’s worth noting that season 2 has moved from Bravo to USA Network.
Netflix US is likely to get season 2 of Dirty John in late 2020.
We’re also expecting the docu-series that accompanies Dirty John will also be coming to Netflix in the United States but we’ll flesh that out in a later article.
