Ryan Murphy is re-teaming with previous colleagues Javier Bardem and Chloë Sevigny, who have joined the Season 2 cast of Murphy’s Monster anthology.
The second season of Netflix’s true-crime series — to be titled Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story — will focus on the titular real-life brothers who were convicted of murdering their parents in 1996. Sevigny and Bardem will co-star as the sons’ mother and father, Mary Louise “Kitty” Menendez and José Menendez. They join Nicholas Alexander Chavez (General Hospital) and Cooper Koch (Power Book II: Ghost) as Lyle and Erik, respectively.
