American screenwriter Ryan Murphy will recreate the story of one of the most notorious criminals in history, who not only committed multiple murders but also engaged in sexual relations with the bodies and even proceeded to eat some of them.

Also a director, the 54-year-old's limited series will also focus on the 17 men Jeffrey killed.

After escaping being caught by the police for more than 20 years, Dahmer was caught in 1991.

According to Deadline, the series will focus on the failings of the police during the investigation, including the numerous times Dahmer was almost caught but missed.

While serving a whopping 15 life terms, Dahmer was then bludgeoned to death in prison in 1994.

The show is still in the early stages as casting for the role of Jeffrey is ongoing.

This is the latest project in a long line of biopics, books and theatres to focus on the serial killer.

Jeremy Renner playing Jeffrey in a film based on his life back in 2002 and in 2017, Sabrina star Ross Lynch took on the awkward teenage, pre-serial killer version of the notorious murderer in My Friend Dahmer.

This will not be Murphy' first Netflix project as The Politician season 2, Hollywood and The Boys in The Band have all been released this year.

His latest project Ratched dropped on the streaming service last month– a One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest prequel focusing on the life of the Nurse Ratched (Sarah Paulson) before she appeared in the movie. 

There's good news for Ratched fans as it will return for a second season.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has not yet been given a release date.
