Season 2 of Netflix’s ‘Monster’ to Release This Year, Killers Have Been Confirmed

The second season of Netflix’s hit series “Monster” is set to be released later this year, and it has been revealed that this season will focus on the infamous Menendez brothers. The first season, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” followed the life of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, and it became one of Netflix’s most-watched shows, reaching one billion view hours in its first 60 days.

The upcoming season, titled “Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story,” will cover the shocking case from 1989 where the Menendez brothers, Lyle and Erik, were accused of murdering their parents, José and Mary Louise Menéndez, in their Beverly Hills home. The series will explore the events leading up to the murders and the subsequent trial, where the brothers claimed years of abuse as their motive, but the prosecution argued it was for financial gain. Both were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Javier Bardem and Chloë Sevigny are set to play the parents, while Nicholas Alexander Chavez and Cooper Koch will portray Lyle and Erik Menendez. The cast also includes Nathan Lane, Ari Graynor, Leslie Grossman, and Dallas Roberts. Fans have been eagerly sharing their excitement for the new season, with many expressing interest in potential future seasons focusing on other notorious criminals.

With the successful formula of combining true crime with dramatic storytelling, the second season of “Monster” promises to delve deep into the psychological and social aspects of the Menendez brothers’ case, offering viewers a detailed and gripping portrayal of one of America’s most notorious family tragedies.
