‘Dirty John’ Is Officially Coming Back for Season 2. Here’s What We Know

More true crime coming in hot: Bravo’s Dirty John was just picked up for season two—by Netflix, no less.

You’ll recall that the first season was based on the Los Angeles Times podcast about real-life con man “Dirty” John Meehan (played by Eric Bana) and the spiral of lies, betrayal and murder surrounding his marriage to Debra Newel (Connie Britton).

But season two will be totally different.

Deadline reports, “Season two will be a different and self-contained story, with details to come at a later date.” Alexandra Cunningham, of Desperate Housewives fame, will return as executive producer.

Even better news for fans of the show: This is just part one of two, as Bravo gave the show a two-season, straight-to-series deal with the streaming service. Plus, Oxygen Media is making a companion docuseries that will go deeper into the real-life story, told through the people duped by Dirty John themselves.

Netflix: giving the people want they want (and sometimes taking it away).
