Just when you thought it was over, Netflix has renewed Ryan Murphy’s “The Watcher” for a second season.
The series, based on the shocking true story, follows Dean (Bobby Cannavale) and Nora Brannock (Naomi Watts), who just purchased their dream home in the idyllic suburb of Westfield, New Jersey.
But after putting all of their savings into closing the deal they soon realize the neighborhood is less than welcoming.
Their icy welcome quickly turns into a full-blown living hell when ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” start arriving, terrorizing the Brannocks to their breaking point as the neighborhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out.
“The Watcher” premiered on Netflix on October 13 and has garnered over 125 million hours in its first five days on the streamer.
The series also made it to the Top 10 in 90 countries.
Oh, but that’s not all, Netflix has also ordered two additional installments of Ryan Murphy’s “Monster” franchise following the success of “The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.”
“Dahmer,” which premiered on the streamer on September 21 is on track to reach 1 billion hours in the next few weeks.
“Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.
Let me find out Ryan Murphy is the captain that is steering Netflix’s boat away from the iceberg.
