LOS ANGELES, CA – Ryan Murphy’s “Monster” season 2 is set to delve into a new chapter of American true crime history, focusing on the infamous Menendez brothers’ murder case. The season is expected to be released in 2024, following a similar schedule as the first season.
The popularity of the first season has led to a double renewal for “Monster,” despite the controversy surrounding its accuracy. The Netflix series offered a unique cinematic perspective on the high-profile case of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
With Cooper Koch and Nicholas Alexander Chavez joining the cast as Lyle and Erik Menendez in season 2, the show is expected to be a star-making opportunity for the relative newcomers. The teaser released by Netflix confirms a 2024 release, and the new season’s focus on the Menendez brothers’ story.
The first trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez, which resulted in a hung jury, will likely be a focal point of the new season. The trials were widely publicized, with defense attorney Leslie Abramson playing a prominent role in the legal proceedings. The second trial ultimately led to a conviction of life without parole for both brothers.
The Netflix teaser for “Monster” season 2 doesn’t reveal much but confirms that production is underway. The show is set to offer a gripping portrayal of the Menendez brothers’ story, shedding new light on their infamous case.
In 1989, the Menendez brothers murdered their parents in Beverly Hills, claiming they were driven to the act by years of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. The season 2 of “Monster” is expected to provide an in-depth exploration of this notorious case, presenting a compelling narrative for the audience.
