Dirty John Season 1 captivated viewers when it premiered in 2018. Following the real-life story of Debra Newell and John Meehan, the first season explored a twisted romantic relationship that ended in death.

USA Network is bringing Dirty John back for a second season, but this time the show will follow a completely different story. Here's what we know about Dirty John Season 2 so far.

Dirty John Season 2 is about Betty Broderick.

While the first season was all about John Meehan's escapades, Season 2 will focus on Betty Broderick, a woman convicted of her husband's murder, and that of his second wife.

Betty Bisceglia met Dan Broderick in the '60s. They tied the knot in 1969 and had five children together. However, Betty got suspicious when Dan hired a much younger legal assistant called Linda Kolkena in 1982. Though he initially denied having an affair with Linda, and called Betty crazy as a result, Dan later married his legal assistant and admitted to infidelity.

Betty and Dan's complicated divorce involved restraining orders, custody battles, and eventually, murder.

Who stars in Dirty John Season 2?

The star-studded series has attracted some major talent for its second season. Amanda Peet stars as Betty, while her husband is played by Christian Slater.

When will new episodes of Dirty John be released?

Season 2 of Dirty John is set to premiere on the USA Network on June 2, 2020, with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9 p.m. EDT. From June 9, episodes will air weekly at 10 p.m. EDT.
