The second series of Ryan Murphy’s Monster will star Chloë Sevigny, Javier Bardem and Nathan Lane, with the newest instalment of the Netflix anthology series set to be named Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story.
Arriving to the streamer at some point in the next year, the show will focus on the Menéndez brothers, who were convicted of murdering their parents, José and Mary Louise “Kitty” Menéndez, in 1966.
The high-profile case saw Lyle and Erik Menéndez each receive a life sentence for shooting their parents, with the trailer featuring the phone call Lyle made in the aftermath of the murders.
As well as highlighting their story, Netflix retained exclusive access to the brothers for an additional documentary further down the line.
The second series follows the success of Monster: A Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which quickly became Netflix’s second most popular TV series to date, bested only by the fourth season of Stranger Things.
The success of the series was contentious, particularly given families of Dahmer’s victims voiced concerns the show would glorify the violence and suffering caused.
Likewise, The Menéndez brother’s defence, which argued that the murders were an act of self-defence after childhood abuse, both physical and emotional, is likely to evoke a highly charged reaction.
