Monster Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know
Even though Ryan Murphy’s latest show, Dahmer, has caused a lot of problems, like ignoring the victims and using the LGBTQ+ label in a way that makes people angry, Netflix has decided to keep it.
In its first week on Netflix in September, 196.2 million subscribers watched Dahmer. This made it the fifth most-watched release in Netflix’s history for the first week. Only big hits like Squid Game, Stranger Things season 4, Bridgerton season 2, and All of Us Are Dead did better, so it seems that Netflix cares most about the numbers.
With this news comes the news that Monster will be an anthology show, just like American Horror Story as well as American Crime Story, which is also made by Ryan Murphy. The press release says that future seasons of Creature will focus on “the stories of other monsters who have changed society.”
Ryan Murphy is working on another collection of stories at Netflix. After Dahmer—Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Article did well, Netflix gave the go-ahead for two more seasons of Monster and a new season of The Watcher, which was Murphy’s other big hit.
Dahmer quickly became the second most-watched show on Netflix. For weeks, it was at the top of both the Netflix and Nielsen rating charts. It’s not surprising that Netflix had been quick to give the collection of short stories two seasons. Monster is now an official anthology show, which means that each season will be about a different notorious person.
Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s head of global TV, said in a declaration on Tudum that audiences can’t stop watching Monster and The Watcher. “Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, who worked on Monster, and Eric Newman, who worked on The Watcher, are master storytellers who have captivated people all over the world.
Ryan’s unique, original voice is what makes these two series work so well together, and we’re excited to keep telling stories inside the Monster and Watcher universes.”
Monster Season 2 Release Date
There is no official date for season 2 of Monster yet, but based on what we already know, we can make some guesses. Ryan Murphy’s other show Monster, and American Crime Story, comes out with a new season every two to three years. If Monster follows this pattern, season 2 might not come out until 2024 or 2025.
But because Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story was a hit and sparked a lot of debate, Netflix is probably going to try to cash in on it. This could mean that Monster season 2 will come out a lot sooner, probably in 2023.
Monster Season 2 Cast
Murphy likes to work with the same actors over and over again. For example, Dahmer star Evan Peters has been in American Horror Story and Murphy’s drag ball drama Pose, so we expect at least each familiar face from of the Ryan Murphy Verse to be in the cast.

Monster Season 2 Plot
We have no idea! “Monsters who have changed society” is a very vague statement. If Murphy and his team want to keep using famous serial killers in future seasons, they could use John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez, Ted Bundy, or even Aileen Wuornos, the original Monster.
But if Ryan Murphy wants to keep looking at race, sexuality, and violence and doesn’t mind stirring up trouble, a season about Lee Boyd Malvo as well as John Allen Muhammad, the so-called “D.C. Snipers” who died 10 people in Maryland and Virginia in 2002 during a terrifying killing spree, seems like a good follow-up to Dahmer.
Bela Bajaria, Director of Global TV at Netflix, said in a press release about season two that people can’t stop watching Monster and The Watcher.
“Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, who worked on Monster, and Eric Newman, who worked on The Watcher, are master storytellers who have captivated people all over the world. Ryan’s unique, original voice is what makes these two series work so well together, and we’re excited to keep telling stories inside the Monster as well as Watcher universes.”
The whole story of the series is about a young Japanese doctor named Dr. Kenzo Tenma who moves to Germany to advance his career. He ends up at the Eisler Memorial Hospital in Düsseldorf, where he’s seen as something of a genius.
He is also going to marry the baby girl of the hospital’s director. This will make sure that he stays a doctor for a long time and stays healthy. But he is not completely happy with his life, since the hospital is only interested in making money.
Dr. Tenma just wants to help the average people and treat them all the same, but the hospital doesn’t agree with him. It’s important to remember that these events take place immediately following World War II.
As a result, Germany’s economy was still hurting from the effects of the war. This meant that hospitals and all other business owners had to find ways to save themselves or risk going bankrupt and closing down.
Here, Dr. Tenma is seen starting to continue operating on a very sick patient before being called away to help with another emergency.
Dr. Tenma argues that he is someone who can do the surgery because there are no skilled doctors around. However, he is forced to leave the operating theatre and allow the less experienced doctors to do the job.
He goes to another operating room to save the other patient, but he later learns that the patient he didn’t operate on didn’t make it.
After talking to the patient’s family, who blamed john for the death of the person he didn’t operate on, Dr. Tenma was visibly shaken by the conversation. But Johan as well as Anna Liebert, 2 young twins whose parents were killed in a freak accident and were brought to the hospital, give him a chance to make things right.
Dr. Tenma gets ready for the surgery, and just as he’s about to start, another nurse runs in and tells him that the mayor just had a heart attack and will be taken to the hospital. Dr. Tenma says that this goes against his ethics as just a doctor, and he will keep operating on Johan, who was shot in the head, no matter what.
