Dirty John season 2, subtitled The Betty Broderick Story, has become a big hit with Netflix subscribers since it arrived, leading to many fans wondering when Dirty John season 3 will be coming out.
The series is based on the true-crime podcast of the same name, and first aired on Bravo before moving to USA for its second season. The first run earned a Golden Globe nomination as it told the story of con man John Meehan’s relationship with Debra Newell—hence the name of the series.
The second season of Dirty John followed Betty Broderick’s murder of her ex-husband Dan Broderick and his new wife, Linda. The show covers the time from when Betty first met Dan all the way up to her controversial 1991 conviction, and Netflix viewers who have discovered the season online have taken to it.
Unfortunately, USA has not renewed the series for another installment yet. But the fact that the show has resonated well with Netflix’s subscribers could prompt the network to put Dirty John season 3 into development.
Dirty John season 3 release date
USA has yet to reveal any kind of release date for Dirty John season 3, and it’s really anyone’s guess at this point whether or not the show will continue. It’s been almost a year since the last episode and no announcement has been made.
If it does get a third season pick-up, it’s possible that Dirty John season 3 could happen in the spring or summer of 2022, as a midseason escape for viewers—but that depends on the show being renewed in the first place.
When is Dirty John season 3 coming to Netflix?
The first season of Dirty John came to an end on January 13, 2019 on Bravo, and it became available to stream on Netflix on November 15, 2019. The second season ended its run on July 14, 2020, and just recently became available on the streaming service.
If there is another season, based on those previous dates, the third season of Dirty John would arrive on Netflix several months after the season finale airs on cable television.
Dirty John season 3 cast
There is no word yet on who would make up the cast of Dirty John season 3, and since every season has been a new story taking place in a different period of time, it’s unlikely any past cast members will show up.
But the show has done an impressive job of attracting top-notch talent including Eric Bana, Connie Britton, Amanda Peet, Christian Slater and Julia Garner, so it will be interesting to see who might sign on for a future installment of the series.
Dirty John season 3 synopsis
No official plot details have been put out for Dirty John season 3. In the second season, the series moved beyond the podcast and delved into a new scandalous story of murder. it would be safe to presume the next season would chronicle another well-known case of a bad relationship leading to someone’s death.
There are ideas out there, though. Showrunner Alexandra Cunningham spoke to The Hollywood Reporter last July about potentially focusing on a more family-centric story in a potential season 3.
“To me the ultimate example of love gone wrong is familial. Especially parentally, I think that’s where love gone wrong truly begins…That’s something I’d love to explore if given the chance.”
Whatever does go down during season 3 of Dirty John, fans of the anthology drama won’t want to miss a minute of it.
Dirty John season 3 trailer
There is no trailer for Dirty John season 3 because there’s nothing to advertise, and until an official renewal happens, viewers shouldn’t expect one either. If the show is renewed, then any trailer will obviously drop closer to the new season’s release date.
