Currently as of now, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has not been renewed for a new season. Netflix has a set from before the renewal of a series, from estimating the number of people watching it to seeing the decline. The most important thing is that Monster is a limited series, which clearly means that this series will not be renewed for another season.
Moreover, the production team has covered every aspect of this case from Jeffrey’s troubled childhood, to Glenda Cleveland’s meeting with Jeffrey, to a detailed version of his horrific crimes. The series briefly depicted the “cold case” of Dean Vaughn, whose murder remains unsolved.
However, the series has also covered Jeffrey’s murder by Christopher Scarver and the extensive trial. Even though Monster has been a big hit, there isn’t much left for Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan to show viewers. The series also shows how the Milwaukee police failed miserably to catch this serial killer. Since it is a “limited series”, there is no reason to renew it.
What is the response from the victims’ families?
Despite its enormous success, “Monster” has been criticized by many families of the victims who were brutally murdered and dismembered by the “Milwaukee Monster“. On September 22, 2022, a Twitter user named Eric, a cousin of Rita Isbell, tweeted a response to the show, saying:
I don’t tell anyone what to watch, I know true crime media is huge [right now], but if you’re actually curious about the victims, my family is pissed off at this show. It’s retraumatizing over and over again, and for what? How many films/series/documentaries do we need?”
He also tweeted: My cousins wake up every few months at this point to a bunch of conversations and messages and they know it’s another Dahmer show. It is cruel.” Apart from this, Rita Isbell, who is the sister of Jeffrey Dahmer’s 11th victim, Errol Lindsey, has come forward and called Netflix greedy. She even stated that she does not need to watch the program because she has actually lived everything.

Rita Isbell’s testimony has been played several times since the release of this series. She is the same woman who confronted Jeffrey during his trial and called him a “Satan“. She was seen yelling at Jeffrey and the courtroom as she said, “So I said: “Let me show you what is out of control. This is out of control.”
During Jeffrey’s sanity trial, the police recorded over 60 hours of audio in which Jeffrey described how he ate his victims. He was heard to say: When I fried a man’s biceps in oil, I used a meat marinade and ate the muscle because it was big and I wanted to taste it, Jeffrey made it taste like beef.
On the morning of November 28, 1994, Jeffrey Dahmer was killed by fellow inmate Christopher Scarver, who thought he was the “chosen one.” Jeffrey was everything like a monster. To the end he had no shame, no guilt for murdering innocent children and men, mostly gays and people of color.
