While Dahmer’s life and crimes have been revisited in many TV shows and films, including Ross Lynch’s portrayal of the serial killer in the 2017 film My Friend Dahmer, Evan Peters said that this series will be worth a watch as it will see him put his own twist on the well-known figure.

“You can have all the backstory you want, but at the end of the day we’re not making a documentary,” he told Variety in April 2021. “It’s more about maintaining the idea and the through line of why you’re telling the story and always having that as your guiding light.”

As for why Evan Peters was so interested in taking on this role, he credited his sister for introducing him to horror and true crime shows as a kid.

“I like to watch scary stuff and dark stuff,” he said. “I am obsessed with comedy and love it and crave it and need it too, but there is something fascinating about watching that stuff.”

Mark your calendars as Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is said to be released on Netflix on the 21st September!
