There has been a lot of limited series based on podcasts that are coming out nowadays. Dirty John is also an American series that is based on podcasts of the same name by Christopher Goffard. The series had mixed reviews from critics and viewers when it was released and also had a lot of nominations under its name. It is an anthological true crime series created by Alexandra Cunningham.
There have been two seasons of Dirty John so far, with the first season focusing on the remarkable tale of Thomas Meehan, and the second season focusing on the Betty Broderick case, which is well-known to many ID channel viewers. Here, Amanda Peet does a great job portraying Betty. The show has many unexpected turns and comes to a shocking conclusion.
Dirty John Season 3 Release Date
When the show was announced, it was listed with two seasons, and after its release, there has been no news regarding the third season. It has not been canceled or renewed. If the show was not going to get another season, then the producers should have announced that by now, but since they did not, there might be slim chances of season 3 returning, though we are not sure when it will come out. There are chances that Netflix will renew it for a third season. If Dirty John season 3 comes out, it is expected to have the same number of episodes and running time as seasons 1 and 2.

Dirty John Season 1 and 2 Recap
The first season of “Dirty John: The John Meehan Story,” which had eight episodes and ran from 2018 to 2109, centers on Thomas Meehan, a con man who seduces Deborah, a woman who has been married four times, into getting married to him. Deborah is a stunning, intelligent woman with a significant blind spot when it comes to men. Her two daughters (Julia Garner and Juno Temple) despise him to the core and try everything in their power to stop their mother from continuing the relationship but to no avail. She owns her own business and has plenty of money.
Season 2, titled The Betty Broderick Story, tells the tale of a suburban mother who has it all but would eventually lose her mind, and her kids, and fight to survive in the society she and her husband co-created. As a woman fighting for her life who had contributed to building, Amanda Peet was amazing. She was getting some money, but it wasn’t all about the money. It was also about the life she had built and the friendships that were taken away from her. She was told to start over as if having four kids would be simple. Even though Betty’s actions were not appropriate, this show helps viewers understand why she committed these crimes by illuminating her motivations.
