Jeffrey Dahmer's life is once again getting the Hollywood treatment, with American Horror Story alum, Evan Peters being the latest actor to step into the shoes of the infamous serial killer, for Netflix's upcoming new series, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story..

On Sept. 15, the streamer released its first official teaser from the series, giving viewers a full look at Evans' transformation into the gory killer.

Dahmer, who was labeled the Milwaukee Cannibal for killing and dismembering almost 20 men and boys over a decade period, was captured in 1991 and later sentenced to 16-lifetime prison terms. Watch the trailer for the upcoming show below!

While Dahmer's life and crimes have been revisited in many TV shows and films, including Ross Lynch's portrayal of the serial killer in the 2017 film My Friend Dahmer, Peters said Monster, which reunites him with frequent collaborator  and Ian Brennan, will be worth a watch as it will see him put his own twist on the well-known figure.

"You can have all the backstory you want, but at the end of the day we're not making a documentary," he told  in April 2021. "It's more about maintaining the idea and the through line of why you're telling the story and always having that as your guiding light."
