Praise The Streaming Gods, Dirty John 2 Is Dropping This Week

A woman holds up her hands, flat against a glass wall.

This year we’ve done a lot of binging… like, an unhealthy amount. And in between the true crime docos, reality series and criminal amount of snacking that’s occurred, we were beginning to worry we may actually run out of shows to watch. We know, it’s a terrifying thought.

Fortunately, our entertainment-hungry hearts will survive another week because the highly anticipated sequel of Dirty John is dropping this Friday 14 August and it’s going to be an absolute ripper of a series.

For those of you who need a refresher, Dirty John OG was the smash hit of 2019. The series, based on a terrifying true story and podcast of the same name, followed hopeless romantic Debra Newell (Connie Britton) and her relationship with charismatic doctor, John Meehan (Eric Bana). Needless to say the union went from loved up to dark and twisted very quickly which left fans hungry for more.

In season two, the series will follow another true crime tale of twisted love. Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story follows Betty (played by Amanda Peet), who once lived the perfect life in San Diego, California. Madly in love with her college sweetheart, and father of her children, Dan Broderick (Christian Slater), the duo’s relationship made headlines in the late 80s and 90s after a scandalous affair turned deadly. We don't want to spoil anything but let's just say, in this case, there's no moving on after divorce. 

Check out the trailer below:

Yep, it’s going to be the perfect binge-worthy watch for your weekend.

Mark your diaries, Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story drops Friday 14 August on Netflix.
