Dirty John season 1 is now on Netflix globally after a late Netflix US addition but is the series returning for season 2? What’s it called, what will it be about and most importantly, when can you stream Dirty John season 2 on Netflix? Let’s take a look.
Before we take a look at season 2, let’s quickly look at season 1 and how it released on Netflix. In international regions, Netflix picked up the entire first season around a month after the series concluded airing on January 13th, 2019. Every episode was made available (including an additional documentary) on February 14th, 2019.
Season 1 of Dirty John finally arrived on Netflix in the United States in November 2019, specifically on November 25th. Netflix in the US has yet to get the documentary special “Dirty John: The Dirty Truth”.
It’s important to note that Dirty John is effectively now an anthology series meaning we won’t be revisiting the story from season 1. Here’s what you can expect from season 2:
In Season 2, it is the story of convicted murderer Betty Broderick (Peet) and her ex-husband (Slater) that spans the 1960s to the ’80s and chronicles the breakdown of their marriage that Oprah deemed one of “America’s messiest divorces” even before it ended in double homicide.
The series has yet to get an official release date but 2020 is all but confirmed and it’s worth noting in the US the series has been moved from Bravo to USA Network.
According to our sources, filming took place for season 2 between August 26th and December 10th meaning we’re expecting a Q1 release date in the United States. Filming took place for season 2 in Orange County and Los Angeles.
Will season 2 of Dirty John be on Netflix?
The answer for this question is, thankfully, yes! When the first details were announced for the series second outing, Deadline confirmed that Netflix remains a co-producer for the series and therefore, has first-run rights outside of the United States.
When will season 2 of Dirty John be on Netflix?
In international regions of Netflix, you’ll either get episodes weekly or all episodes dropped soon after the series has concluded. The likelihood is more of a single drop at the end given that was the schedule for season 1.
Netflixers in the United States will likely have a wait for 9 months for it to become available on Netflix there meaning you’ll want to watch it live to catch it.
We’ll keep this post updated as and when we learn more about Dirty John season 2.
