Netflix on Friday dropped off the official trailer for Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan’s forthcoming true crime series, Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, starring American Horry Story actor Evan Peters.

Peters will depict the namesake serial killer, who horrifically took the lives of seventeen innocent people between 1978 and 1991. Murphy’s series “exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the 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,” according to the official synopsis.

Aside from Peters, the series also stars Richard Jenkins, Molly Ringwald, Michael Learned and Niecy Nash. Murphy and Brennan created and executive produce the show alongside Peters, Alexis Martin Woodall, Eric Kovtun, Janet Mock and Carl Franklin.

“Over the course of 10 powerful episodes, Dahmer shines a spotlight on the as-yet untold stories of Dahmer’s victims, the people who tried to stop him and the systemic failures that enabled him to continue his murderous spree for over a decade,” a post from the Ryan Murphy Productions Instagram account read. “Which is why we needed two trailers to properly showcase the complex story.” Expect a second trailer to arrive on September 20 at 8 p.m. PT.

Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story will premiere on Netflix on September 21. Watch the first official trailer above.
