The monster is drawing a crowd.
Dahmer–Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has proven to be a huge hit for Netflix. In the show’s first 60 days streaming, it has logged more than one billion hours viewed, according to a report on Deadline.
These numbers make Dahmer–from Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan–Netflix’s second most popular English-language TV show ever, trailing only the fourth season of Stranger Things. The streamer’s most popular show is South Korea’s Squid Game.
In the light of those impressive numbers, Netflix has already ordered two new entries in the Monster franchise. No details on these new shows have been revealed, but it was reported that they will tell stories of “other monstrous figures who have had an impact on society.”
The 10-episode Dahmer series–starring Evan Peters–is largely told from the point of view of the victims of the notorious serial killer, diving into the incompetence and apathy that allowed Dahmer to go on his long killing spree.
The series also stars Niecy Nash, Richard Jenkins, Molly Ringwald and Michael Learned.
