You wouldn’t think the plot allows it, but apparently season 2 of ‘The Watcher’ is on its way

the watcher season 2

Most of us tuned into Ryan Murphy's The Watcher completely aware that it would be a satisfying one season brain-number. It's the chicken and rice equivalent of television; nourishment and cheap thrills with minimal effort. By the end of the series we had contented ourselves with the fact that we would never truly know who was sending those letters – we read The Cut article after all. So you can imagine our surprise when we heard Mr. Murphy would be squeezing a second season out of the mystery.

Of course, we don't know exactly how Ryan Murphy intends to do this given that season 2 of The Watcher has only just been announced. There are no details about the show, or any further investigations to drive the plot. But considering that the series – lead by Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale – soared to the number 1 spot for most watched content a mere week after it released on the streamer, it's clear Murphy wants to milk the success until we can no longer stomach the sight of another cashmere sweater.

For those who would like to brush up on the plot of The Watcher without having to subject yourselves to the actual series, then we wrote about the show earlier in October. No news yet about who will star, when the second season will drop, or anything really. So watch this space.

In more news from the Ryan Murphy-verse, the director has been awarded two further seasons of his anthology Monster series that began with Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story on Netflix. “The future installments of Monster will tell the stories of other monstrous figures who have impacted society," reads a press release. Although, given the controversy around the true crime series, the loudest critics being the families of Dahmer's victims, it begs the question; do we need another show about violent serial killers? Ryan Murphy certainly believes so, as if Ted Bundy or Son of Sam needed more air time...
