While the original Dirty John series focussed on John Meehan, a conman with a history of deceiving vulnerable women, the second season takes a whole new turn.

The second installment is based on another true tale of a relationship gone wrong, spanning from the 1960s to the 80s.

Betty Broderick was considered the perfect wife and mother from Southern California who was married to her college boyfriend Dan.

She was a charming woman but after years of putting her heart and soul into the relationship, Dan got involved with a new woman.

USA Network said: "Dan hires Linda Kolkena Broderick (Rachel Heller), a bright, beautiful young woman without baggage with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past.

"Betty's attempts to fight back and enraged refusals to accept reality only serve to isolate and destabilize her until she loses her very identity.

"And Dan's cold confidence blinds him to the bear he has created, and won't stop poking ... until it's too late."
