True crime buffs got their wish. 

Monster, Netflix's binge-worthy series, will get another two seasons on the streamer, according to a recent announcement. Powerhouses Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan delivered the show's sophomore installment this September, and it focused on the infamous Jeffrey Dahmer case. 

Not only was the Evan Peters-led project Netflix's second most popular English TV season ever, but it brought the horrific story back to life. People began questioning "When did Jeffrey Dahmer get caught," "Is the Jeffrey Dahmer apartment building still standing," and "What happened to Lionel Dahmer?" (For the record, the serial killer's father contemplated suing the streamer for the distress the series has caused.) 

Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story did not sit well with victims families, either, but despite pushback, the fictionalized true crime hit saw massive success and will likely continue to do so.

"The creative team of Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan on Monster are masterful storytellers who captivated audiences all over the world," Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s head of global TV, said in a statement.

'Monster' Netflix: what's next?

At this time, details are currently under wraps about future casts, plot lines and release dates. However, we can certainly guarantee gruesome stories, as the series will focus on "other monstrous figures who have impacted society," according to Variety

Additionally, Murphy, Brennan and Eric Newman's eerie thriller The Watcher will also get another season on Netflix. The debut took a few liberties with the story of a New Jersey family that had been terrorized by threatening, anonymous notes upon moving into their new home. Oh, and most importantly, the series included a role from Jennifer Coolidge. Specifics are not available at this time.
