Two new installments of the true crime series are on the way.
November 9, 2022
Netflix has announced that it is expanding their new 'Monster' franchise with an order for two additional installments. The news comes six weeks after the premiere of Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which has since gone into the record books as the seventh-most viewed streaming program in the US in a single week. Now closing in on 1 billion view hours, the show is the second most popular English TV season on Netflix.
From Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, the first installment in the now-anthology series examines the horrific true crimes of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, with a focus on the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed a notorious serial killer to continue his murderous spree for over a decade.
There are no details on the subjects of future 'Monster' installments, except to say that they will focus on other monstrous figures who have had an impact on society.

Ah, the typical ad hominem, just as useless as the logical fallacy in your previous argument.
There has been a rapid decline in serial killings since the 80's, in the 40 years afterwards we've had a lot of violent movies, video-games and TV-shows come out.
In the past 10 or so years these have become more realistic but we have yet to see a 'rapid increase' in serial killings being caused by any of these forms of content.
You don't think a person that is prone to commit violent acts would find other 'triggers' that would make them commit serial killings?
If we're going to remove or prevent entertainment content from releasing because it's possible that somebody might turn to killing, then what would you even watch on TV?
Instead of removing entertainment, perhaps you should look at things like, I don't know maybe stop bullying at school? Which is known to be the prime trigger why people commit school shootings among others....
Because we all know where it will end up with as soon as you start removing one thing:
No serial killer content > No War content > No Fighting content > No Horror content > No Fantasy content.
Lord of the Rings? Cancelled
Game of Thrones? Cancelled
Band of Brothers? Cancelled
The Godfather? Cancelled
Pulp Fiction? Cancelled
Breaking Bad? Cancelled
In all these shows there's a degree of violence or other heinous acts committed. These could also serve as triggers for somebody to start killing according to your logic.
Seriously people, bad things happened before mass media, TV shows and related was even invented and will continue to happen until humanity goes extinct.
If anything you could say books are even worse, since even worse acts are depicted in books as it doesn't have to deal with censorship like on TV. Not to mention the fact that people fantasize while reading books about the acts committed in these books.
