The second season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series ‘Monster’ will be pluralized this time as the plot focuses on two people who are known to be brothers.
After the success of DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, the producer is about to tell a story that focuses on Lyle and Erik Menendez, who got arrested for the murder of their parents in 1996.
Similar to Murphy’s previous works like American Horror Story and American Crime Story, Monster also runs with new characters each time a new season comes up. The second installment was announced after a teaser was posted, featuring a police call between the operator and a crying Lyle Menendez that tells them what happened to his parents.
The second season will tackle the murder case that the media covered in the late ’80s and early ’90s. At first findings for the murder of Jose and Mary Louis “Kitty” Menendez, Erik and Lyle had not been suspected of committing it. But the police started to involve the brothers in their investigations months after the tragedy.
The brothers admitted in a trial that they did it as ‘self-defense’ after the victims’ gave them a ‘lifetime of abuse.’ They were found guilty in 1990 and sent over to the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in Southern California.
For now, there is still no confirmed cast for the project. But big names are rumored to be a part of it, like Kim Kardashian, Darren Criss, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, and more. Peters, meanwhile, has been previously cast in some of Murphy’s projects. One of his known roles is that of the previous season’s high-profile serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer, who murdered 17 men between 1978 and 1991.
According to a November 2022 report by Deadline, two more Monster installments are set to stream after the DAHMER success.
