When Does Betty Broderick Get out of Jail? ‘Dirty John’ Explains All

In the early morning hours of Nov. 5, 1989, Betty Broderick drove to her ex-husband Dan Broderick’s home and shot him and his second wife Linda Broderick while they were in bed. It was a double homicide that Betty Broderick would later willingly admit to, as she had turned herself into authorities.

And now that Season 2 of Dirty John, which premieres on USA on June 2, is covering the story, the question about when Betty Broderick gets out of jail is sure to be on viewers’ minds.

The ‘Dirty John’ Season 2 cast will likely do the true story justice.

Season 1 of USA’s Dirty John told the real-life story of the charismatic grifter John Meehan and how he waltzed into the lives of different women to enchant them before totally taking advantage of them. Now, Season 2 will delve into the story of Betty Broderick and Dan Broderick’s romance, failed marriage, and how things went so wrong in the end.

Amanda Peet plays Betty Broderick and Christian Slater was brought on for the role of Dan Broderick. Regardless of how each is portrayed in the anthology series, Amanda told Variety that she wanted to make sure she portrayed Betty Broderick in a way to explain some of her actions.

“I am very close with Holland Taylor, and before I started, she gave me a great piece of advice: Don’t play crazy,” Amanda revealed. “She encouraged me to look at each scene as a legitimate protest or a justified experience.”

Betty Broderick is still blaming others today.

After having been denied parole more than once, Betty Broderick is still incarcerated at the California Institution for Women. And in a letter she wrote to ABC’s 10News in San Diego in 2019, she continued to blame the courts and her ex-husband for what had happened to her and what she had done. 

She claimed in the letter that Dan Broderick had used his standing as a powerful attorney to intimidate her for years and that the court system was against her from the start.

Factors like good behavior could mean that Betty Broderick is granted another parole hearing before 2032, but for now, Betty Broderick is staying put where she has been for decades. During Season 2 of Dirty John, the events that came before and after the murders will be looked at a little more closely and, even though the guilty verdict was clear, it will give some viewers a chance to see the story themselves.

Watch Dirty John on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
