After airing in the US earlier in 2020, Dirty John season 2 has arrived on Netflix internationally but why is Dirty John season 2 not on Netflix US?
In recent years, the true-crime genre has exploded in popularity with documentaries such as Making a Murderer raking in millions of curious viewers and wannabe detectives.
For the most part, true-crime shows appear in the form of documentaries which makes Dirty John, which dramatises real events, a standout from the crowd.
The series first arrived on screens in late 2018 and a second season followed suit in 2020.
However, while the new episodes have arrived on Netflix here in the UK and elsewhere internationally, US viewers have been left waiting but why is this and will season 2 of Dirty John make it onto Netflix?

After season 1 focused on the story of John Meehan, season 2 takes a different route and tells another true-crime tale, this time detailing the life of Elisabeth ‘Betty’ Broderick.
Season 2 explores Betty’s relationship with her husband of 20 years, Daniel Broderick, and delves into their divorce and how she murdered not only Daniel but his new wife, Linda, as well.
Why is Dirty John season 2 not on Netflix US?
Season 2 is not on US Netflix yet because the show is not a true Netflix original was broadcast instead on the USA Network in between June and July 2020.
However, as season 1 of Dirty John did eventually make its way onto Netflix, it is highly likely that the second batch of episode will follow suit later down the line.
Season 2 release date
It is currently unconfirmed if or when season 2 will arrive on Netflix US.
However, if we look at the Netflix release dates for season 1 we can estimate when season 2 might arrive on the streaming service.
Season 1 of Dirty John arrived on US Netflix on November 25th, 2019, according to Decider, almost a full year after the show made its debut on Bravo.
As a result, it’s expected – although not confirmed – that season 2 will likely arrive on US Netflix in May or June of 2021.
Here in the UK and internationally, Dirty John season 2 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on August 14th, 2020.
