Dirty John season 2 includes Chicago Justice alum Joelle Carter.
Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story begins tonight at 9:00 p.m. on NBC’s sister channel USA. The season dramatizes the true story of Betty Broderick (played by Amanda Peet), who murdered her ex-husband Dan (Christian Slater) and his new wife after a contentious divorce.
Joelle Carter appears in tonight’s second episode, “The Turtle and the Alligator,” as a friend of Betty’s who meets her when Dan joins a new law firm—and who winds up testifying against Betty in her murder trial.
It’s the second Dirty John appearance for Joelle. She previously portrayed Denise, John Meehan’s (Eric Bana) sister, in two episodes of the first season.
She’ll be most recognizable to One Chicago fans for her role as Laura Nagel, the savvy investigator who worked with Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), in the one and only season of Chicago Justice that aired in 2017.
More recently, she returned to the universe in the Chicago Med season 5 episode “Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” as Lynne Driscoll, a former patient of Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) who resurfaced.
Her role in Dirty John season 2 is miles apart from either character, though, as the season takes place primarily in the 1980’s—so she’s glammed up with a whole new hairstyle! And instead of investigating crimes, now she’s a key witness to one.
Watch the latest Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story sneak peek below and then catch two back-to-back episodes tonight on USA. Note that Joelle Carter only appears in the second hour.
