Ryan Murphy is set to reteam with Evan Peters and the two will premiere 'DAHMER - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story' very soon.

We have seen the duo do multiple series together, such as American Horror Story, but this time we will witness something completely new.
The first images of the miniseries have already been revealed after releasing the first teaser, which portrays the shocking and chilling events of the serial killer who deeply moved the state of Milwaukee in the late 70's. Jeffrey Dahmer was nicknamed The Milwaukee Monster after pleading guilty.
This role will be one of the most important in Peters' career, as we have previously seen him star in dramas but never in this way, as he will have to step into the shoes of one of the most notorious murderers in history, who killed 17 people between 1978 and 1991.

The miniseries will focus on Jeffrey Dahmer, one of the most macabre killers of the century. He managed to kill 15 men and boys through different methods, such as cannibalism, mutilation and necrophilia. The production will tell the story of his origins through his eyes and how the police let him go free when they saw him as harmless, giving him free rein to go on a killing spree over the years. It will focus on the circumstances surrounding them and not so much on the details of the murders.

DAHMER - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, focusing on the neglected victims and their communities affected by the systemic racism and institutional failures of law enforcement that allowed one of America's most notorious serial killers to continue his killing spree. in plain sight for more than a decade".
