Season 2 of Dirty John is still currently in the pre-production stages and if you're like me, the wait for a new drama-filled season is basically torture. While recent news has come out about what season 2 of the drama will focus on (it's apparently supposed to be more messed up then season 1) you might still be needing a little extra help to get through the hiatus. Luckily, there's a bunch of other series on Netflix that are super similar to Dirty John. Here are some shows on Netflix Canada that will help make the wait till season 2 of Dirty John not seem that long! 

Gypsy 

Rating: 39% on Rotten Tomatoes 

Gypsy is similar to Dirty John in that it's also a psychological thriller. It follows a psychologist named Jean Holloway who gets intensely involved in her patient's lives. According to Netflix things with her patients get very "dangerous and intimate." The series stars Naomi Watts and was created by Lisa Rubin. 

Mindhunter 

Rating: 97% on Rotten Tomatoes 

Mindhunter is all the rage right now and probably one of Netflix's most talked-about shows. The show is currently waiting on its third season with the other two stream on Netflix. Mindhunter follows true murder stories as two FBI agents research the psychological aspect of serial killers and the psychology behind their murders. Like Dirty John, the main characters are always one step away from danger. 

Safe 

Rating: 77% on Rotten Tomatoes 

While this story isn't exactly about a married couple, it does feature psychological drama within a family unit. Netflix synopsis for their original series Safe reads, "After his teenage daughter goes missing, a widowed surgeon in an affluent neighborhood begins unearthing dark secrets about the people closest to him."

Dead To Me

Rating: 88% on Rotten Tomatoes 

Dead To Me deals with the aftermath of a spouse's death and discovering the dreadful truth about people who are close to you. The series follows a widow who's searching for the truth behind her husband's death. Like Dirty John, it deals with an extremely messed up situation. 

You 

Rating: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes 

It has been said that Dirty John is actually the perfect sequel to You. What would happen if Joe got away and married someone else? This is probably the show that is most similar to Dirty John. It deals with domestic issues both psychologically and emotionally and a lot of murder. Season 2 of You is currently in production! 

Bloodline 

Rating: 62% on Rotten Tomatoes

As its name implies, Bloodline is also about messed up secrets and relationships within a family. This time though, it's between the siblings. Netflix's synopsis for their original is, "When the black sheep son of a respected family threatens to expose dark secrets from their past, sibling loyalties are put to the test."
