After getting released in September, Ryan Murphy's Dahmer -- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story hasn't left the list of the top watched shows on Netflix.

And the good news is that Netflix has ordered the show to return for two more seasons.

The first season of Monster dove into the horrifying true story of one of the most notorious serial killers of all time, Jeffrey Dahmer. This is why the official title of the show was Dahmer -- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The succeeding two seasons of the show will turn to other murderous people and change the titles accordingly.

Netflix has already promised that the two new installments will be about "other monstrous figures who have impacted society."

Dahmer -- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story followed the murderous life of Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer. The upcoming seasons of Monster have not yet been confirmed, but we're placing our bets on John Wayne Gacy or maybe even Marilyn Manson.

This, however, is unconfirmed at this point.
