What about Dylan Maxwell?
Dylan, the central subject (played by former YouTube king Jimmy Tatro) of Season 1's investigation, might have disappointed some fans as he leaned into the bad-boy image that was created for him. Don't expect a big comeback story. While it's possible we could see more of him, it doesn't seem likely -- at least not in a big way. As the creators have mentioned, Season 1 was Dylan's story. Season 2 should be someone else's.
"We really wanted to make sure that this was Dylan's story," Perrault told us. "Hopefully, people feel sated," Yacenda added. "Of course, there's that part of you that's still thinking about it the way I'm still thinking about Steven Avery and Adnan Syed."
Though Season 2 takes place in the same universe as Season 1, the creators have said that the new entry's setting is "far away from Hanover High School," implying that it probably won't be in Dylan's orbit. "One of the questions we get most often is, 'Is Jimmy [Tatro] back? Is Dylan back?'" Lagana told Vulture recently. "We want each season to be its own crime."
So... if you're still wondering what's happened to Dylan, that's open to interpretation, but for what it's worth: "I think, unfortunately, it might be similar to what his brother's doing," Tatro told us last year. "I think that's one of the things that maybe some viewers weren't happy about -- the show didn't have the most happy ending, but I also think that that's what was realistic about it."
