Dirty John season two is coming to Netflix next month!

Netflix has released a new trailer and I’m ready

After over a year of waiting, Netflix has finally given us a release date for season two of Dirty John – and it’s next month!

We became hooked on season one, which was based on the true story of John Meehan and Debra Newell. Netflix then announced a true crime documentary version of the real life story called Dirty John: The Dirty Truth. The second season of the Dirty John anthology is called Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story and is based on the real events of one of America’s most controversial marriages.

Dirty John season two is about the story of Betty Broderick

The true crime is a dramatised version of the real events in the relationship of divorced couple, Dan and Betty Broderick. It ended with Betty murdering Dan and his new, much younger, wife.

Dan was a lawyer and the couple shared five children together. However, in 1983, Betty accused her husband of having an affair with his assistant, Linda Kolkena.

Two years later Dan Broderick moved out of the family home to live with Linda. Betty left their children one-by-one at his doorstep until he had custody of all five of them.

The divorce was long and difficult and the case went to court. Broderick v Broderick became one of the most controversial divorces in US history. The couple’s separation became official in 1989 and Dan married his assistant Linda in the same year. Seven months after the wedding of Dan and Linda, Betty stole a key to their home and shot them both dead.
