Dirty John has just wrapped its second season, and now the showrunner is looking ahead to season three. The series has not yet been officially renewed for a third season though.
An anthology series, season two of Dirty John stars Amanda Peet, Christian Slater, and Rachel Keller with Missi Pyle, Emily Bergl, Holley Fain, Lena Georgas, Tiera Skovbye, and Chris Mason. The second season follows the real-life and shocking story of love, betrayal, and death that’s based on the lives of Betty (Peet) and Dan Broderick (Slater).
“The stories we’ve been talking about are definitely different milieus than Orange/San Diego counties. But also, we consider our unifying principles to be love gone wrong and coercive control. … The thing I would love to do, all things being equal, to me the ultimate example of love gone wrong is familial. Not romantic love, not a couple, not a boyfriend-girlfriend like the first season or a married couple divorcing, but mother-child, siblings. Especially parentally, I think that’s where love gone wrong truly begins, that the love coming from a parent is not appropriate or twisted or not real, that is obviously one of the things that contributes to people’s future behavior. That’s something I’d love to explore if given the chance.”
The showrunner did reveal conversations about season three of Dirty John would start soon.
