True crime series “Dirty John” is set to return to Netflix soon with its second season. “Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story” will arrive on August 14th – where the first series followed the story of con man John Meehan, the second part will follow a different true crime story. The second series stars Christian Slater (“Mr Robot”) and Amanda Peet (“2012”) who tell the “epic true tale of love gone wrong — a story that spans the 1960s to the ’80s, through the breakdown of a marriage that Oprah deemed one of ‘America’s messiest divorces’ even before it ended in double homicide.” The series has already aired in America.
Peet stars as the titular Betty Broderick, a “perfect Southern California blonde wife and mother married to her handsome college boyfriend Dan (Slater). After years of sacrifice and suffering while supporting Dan through both medical and law school until he exploded into the San Diego legal community as a superstar, Betty is finally enjoying the fruits of their labours. That is, until Dan hires Linda, a bright, beautiful young woman with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past.”
