The Trailer For ‘Dirty John’ S2 Is Here And It’s A Whole New Story Of Love & Murder

Dirty John has gifted true crime heads the trailer for season 2. That is, until Dan hires Linda, a bright, handsome young woman without baggage with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past.

Dan and Linda began an affair, and in 1985, he announced he was leaving Betty. Their split was long and ugly. The divorce wasn't finalized until 1989. Shortly after, Betty turned herself into the police. But she was inevitably found guilty of second-degree murder in a second trial.

The Broderick murder case was a tabloid sensation. Betty did a jailhouse interview with Oprah Winfrey and also appeared on Hard Copy and 20/20.

Now, a new generation of television viewers are about to be introduced to the Betty Broderick story.

In the second installment in the series, titled Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story, Peet plays the titular real-life character Betty, who gunned down her ex-husband Dan Broderick (here played by Slater) and his second wife in 1989. Betty didn't deny that she killed her ex-husband and Linda, but she explained that she was driven to do it after her husband's treatment of her during their divorce and custody battle over their children. "I was married for 16 years and then he turns 40 and he's walking out with a 19-year-old and a sports vehicle".

"I've been robbed of my children ..."

'Dan had me committed to a psych ward, ' she says in voice over.

Soon, things between the former couple go completely out of control, with Dan choking Betty on the ground, Betty driving her vehicle directly into his front door. until eventually, a gun is seen.

The Betty Broderick Story focuses on the breakdown of a popular couple's marriage, which ends in a double homicide. A 1991 episode of Law & Order, "The Wages of Love" was inspired by the case.

Betty Broderick's picture-perfect life is shattered when she finds out that her husband - her college sweetheart, Dan - is cheating on her.

USA Network has released the trailer for Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story, the second installment in the Dirty John anthology series starring Amanda Peet (Brockmire, Togetherness, The Good Wife) and Golden Globe victor Christian Slater (Mr. Robot, Dr. Death, True Romance).
