Additionally, Netflix ordered a second season of the real estate thriller The Watcher from Murphy, Brennan and Eric Newman.

Bela Bajaria, head of global TV at Netflix, said: “Audiences can’t take their eyes off Monster and The Watcher. The creative team of Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan on Monster along with Eric Newman on The Watcher are masterful storytellers who captivated audiences all over the world. The back-to-back force of these two series is due to Ryan’s distinct original voice which created cultural sensations, and we are thrilled to continue telling stories in the Monster and Watcher universes.”
