Dirty John’s third season has yet to be renewed by USA. The first season of the show aired on Bravo before moving to another network. However, based on Alexandra Cunningham’s remarks to The Hollywood Reporter. About the third season’s preparation, we’re hopeful. Cunningham said, referring to herself and the rest of the writers’ room, “We’re going to be having a discussion really soon.”
It will have a different plot and a whole new cast. Since the show is an anthology. Each season is self-contained, so Peet will not reprise her role as Betty Broderick.
However, a similar thread runs through all of Dirty John’s seasons. “We consider love gone wrong and coercive power to be our unifying principles,” Cunningham told The Hollywood Reporter. Another “love gone wrong” story is on the way.
The writers may have an idea for the story of Dirty John Season 3.
Cunningham discussed her expectations for the upcoming season with The Hollywood Reporter. Cunningham, for one, wants to leave the West Coast, where both seasons have taken place. She also wants to shift the emphasis away from romantic relationships. That dominated the first two seasons and toward the family unit.
“The ultimate example of love gone wrong, in my opinion, is familial love. Not romantic love, not a couple, not a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship (as in the first season) or a divorced couple, but mother-child, siblings. I believe that parental love is where love gone wrong truly begins. That parental love is not appropriate, twisted, or real. And that this is one of the things that contribute to people’s future behavior. If given the opportunity, that’s something I’d like to investigate” According to Cunningham.
However, the coronavirus pandemic has caused delays in TV and movie development. So it’s hard to tell when season 3 of Dirty John will be out.
