Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan have chosen who they will next focus on after the record-breaking success of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
The series — like most of their other projects — has now turned into an anthology. The next season will follow the harrowing story of the Menéndez brothers, Lyle and Erik, who were convicted of murdering their parents José and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menéndez in 1996.
In addition to this, Variety reported that it also has “exclusive access” to Lyle and Erik Menéndez, who are currently incarcerated at the RJ Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, California, to participate in a documentary feature from Campfire Studios.
In fact, Murphy and Brennan have previously mentioned the famed brothers in another project, FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Given that both trials were happening simultaneously IRL, the case was mentioned on the show.
The choice of story will perhaps grip the world once more, especially since the subjects are currently in news headlines as we speak.
New allegations have surfaced regarding José in the new docu-series Menendez + Menudo: Boys Betrayed. A member of the boy band Menudo, Roy Rosselló, has claimed that Lyle and Erik’s father sexually assaulted him as a teenager.
Back in November 2022, Netflix announced that they had green-lit two more Monster stories as well as another season of The Watcher.
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story had a whopping 1 billion view hours in its first 60 days worldwide.
