Dirty John 2: The Betty Broderick Story tells the harrowing tale of Betty and her husband Daniel's bitter divorce battle and subsequent criminal case. The drama series, based on the true-crime story, stars Amanda Peet and Christian Slater as its leading characters. Warning, spoilers ahead! After Betty is driven to madness by her ex-husband, she eventually shoots him and his new partner dead. 


There are still plenty of TV shows and films exclusive to Netflix's subscribers 

Many couldn't help but question why the new season was named Dirty John initially, with one person writing: "I don't get why it's called Dirty John. Wasn't that an entirely different story?" Another echoed this feeling: "The problem is: they named the first season Dirty John based on a true story and it had a bunch of fans but sometimes a second season is not necessary."
