In Netflixs Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Evan Peters plays the serial killer for the first time. (Yes, that's the actual title of the show.)
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a show that focuses less on the horrific details of the killings and more on the circumstances surrounding them, according to the synopsis:
Jeffrey Dahmer killed seventeen innocent people between 1978 and 1991. A series that exposes these unconscionable crimes centered around the underserved victims and their communities affected by 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.
Peters has made a name for himself through his roles in Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and he reprised that role in the Disney Plus series WandaVision.
Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which also stars Niecy Nash, Richard Jenkins, and Molly Ringwald, will launch on Netflix on September 21. The three-part docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes, which premieres October 7th.
