Conceived by Alexandra Cunningham, ‘Dirty John’ is an American true crime anthology TV series, heavily inspired by the podcast of the exact name by Christopher Goffard, which was launched on November 25, 2018, on Bravo.
When the series came out it received mixed to favorable reviews and shortly gained much popularity at the award shows. The series stars Connie Britton, Eric Bana, Juno Temple, Julia Garner, Amanda Peet, Christian Slater, and Rachel Keller. Let’s find out below whether a second season will happen or not.
Dirty John Season 3 Release Date: When Is It?
‘Dirty John’ was originally announced for a two-season run. So now that a second season has wrapped which aired on May 31, 2020, it’s unclear if the third season of Dirty John will be renewed. As of now, USA Network is yet to announce the prospect of the show.
Furthermore, if a third season happens, we can expect the new episodes to arrive sometime in 2023.
The Cast of Dirty John Season 3
As mentioned above, the show has not been renewed yet, and it’s difficult to predict who will return in the second season since both seasons one and two had different cast members but it’s most likely that the viewers would want to see the same main characters in the potential third season including–
Christian Slater will return as Dan Broderick
Connie Britton in the role of Debra Newell
Eric Bana will reprise his role as John Meehan
Amanda Peet will be back as Betty Broderick
In addition to that, if a third season takes place it’s expected that more new famous cast would be introduced to the viewers in the third season of Dirty John.
Dirty John season 3 Plot: Expectations
When it comes to the plot, nothing is revealed. Nonetheless, there has been no update from the showrunner regarding the next installment.
But it’s safe to assume that the story would probably continue from where the second season left off. The third season’s storyline would be connected to the first and second seasons of Dirty John. The previous two seasons showcased the manipulative and dominant ways of a relationship that eventually leads to violence.
The third season will possibly concentrate on a true story about a relationship that goes downhill. But sadly, there are not enough alternatives for the writer’s squad behind the series ‘Dirty John’ to use it for the next season. The first season entirely followed the podcast while the second season did not. So it’s likely that the third season would follow a similar concept as the second season. Rather, it would be inspired by real-life events about a person who inflicts severe violence after a sweet relationship evolves something into more of a terror.
Where to Watch Dirty John?
All the episodes of both the first and second seasons are available for streaming on Netflix. If the series returns with the third season, the new episodes will also be available on the streaming giant.
