Based on Christopher Goffard’s eponymous podcast, ‘Dirty John’ is an anthology series that delves at the uncontrollable consequences of love tales gone bad.
The program, created by Alexandra Cunningham, aired Bravo on November 25, 2018. It centers on the charming con artist John Meehan’s life and demise. It garnered favorable reviews from both reviewers and spectators.
On the other hand, the second episode was shifted from Bravo to USA Network. Season 2 follows Elisabeth Broderick as she becomes a convicted double killer.
This series has amassed considerable popularity over the years due to its interesting but perplexing plotlines. Thus, if you’re wondering if there will be another season, we’ve got the information for you.
Dirty John Season 3 Release Date
Season 2 of ‘Dirty John,’ titled ‘The Betty Broderick Story,’ premiered on USA Network, May 31, 2020. It concluded its run on July 14, 2020, after airing eight 45-minute episodes.
The program was relocated from Bravo to NBCUniversal’s sister network for the second part to increase viewership and build a stronger presence in the anthology true-crime genre, which, to be honest, worked beautifully.
Regarding season 3, although authorities have yet to confirm whether the series will be renewed or canceled, Alexandra Cunningham’s comments on the subject make us quite excited about a completely new plot.
When asked about the upcoming season in July 2020, she stated, “We’re going to have a conversation very soon,” referring to all the writers involved in the process. Thus, if renewed, we can anticipate a third season of ‘Dirty John’ in the summer of 2022.
Dirty John Season 3 Plot
As previously said, ‘Dirty John’ season 1 follows John Meehan, a mystery con artist who employs his affable demeanor to corrupt the ladies in his life for his selfish ends.
John seduces, connives, and manipulates his wife, Debra, throughout the season. Her daughters, who disapprove of him, eventually convince Debra to see the light and leave John. However, what follows is a sequence of sad events that culminate in John’s death.
On the other hand, ‘Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story chronicles all of Elisabeth “Betty” Anne Broderick’s struggles and tribulations.
It explains how years of unfaithfulness, gaslighting, divorce processes, and public humiliation drove her to the verge of murdering her ex-husband and his new wife in their bed. Additionally, her inability to spend time with her four children has fueled her fury throughout the years.
If renewed, we anticipate that ‘Dirty John’ season 3 will continue the story of Southern California love gone awry.
We have little doubt that Alexandra Cunningham would select a similar real-life situation for her future venture, given her preference for chronicling failed relationships and how they can turn more than one person’s lives upside down.
However, based on her comments, it seems as if she may make a dramatic shift from romantic love to family love gone bad.
