'Dirty John' Season Two Is Officially Coming To Netflix
While the first series is based on the true story of sociopath John Meehan and his victim Debra Newell, the new series will follow a completely different storyline.
According to Deadline, Netflix has ordered a second season with a new cast who will follow a 'different and self-contained story.'
Season two will be produced by Herzog & Co and Los Angeles Times Studios, with executive producers Mark Herzog, Christopher G. Cowen and Desperate Housewives' Alexandra Cunningham all on board.
As well as the new series, Netflix is also set to produce a docu-series about the real John Meehan, including interviews with people involved in the case, much like the hugely popular and bizarre Abducted In Plain Sight.
The first series is based on the Los Angeles Times podcast of the same name, which followed the real life story of the conman, known as Dirty John to his friends.
Eric Bana, who plays John in the Netflix series, previously told the Daily Mail how he round the role both "uncomfortable and interesting."
"It does have an effect. You could go away feeling too much like John at the end of the day," he explained, however he revealed he's become "pretty good at switching off" after more than two decades in the industry.
"There is part of your brain that is always - because you have to - creatively thinking about the character and the work you have tomorrow.
"You are definitively dedicating a good part of your brain to your character and your character's thought processes. It makes sense that it's going to be a little uncomfortable."
Dirty John is available to stream on Netflix now.
