If you're a true crime aficionado, chances are you already binge-watched the Netflix documentary Evil Genius. The four-episode series looked back at the story of the pizza bomber — a delivery man named Brian Wells who walked into a bank with a homemade bomb collar and asked for $250,000. After being apprehended by police, the suspect reveals he was forced to commit the crime and the hunt for the real culprit begins.
So, is a sequel on the way for Evil Genius? If the directors have their way, you will be streaming more episodes soon. "We would love to do another deep dive into the characters in here, to reveal new information. We could do a Good Genius, too," Barbara Schroeder and Trey Borzillier told The Wrap. Fans of the series have been vocal about wanting to know more about Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, who was possibly the mastermind behind the whole crime — and that is something Barbara and Trey agree with.
"This is the kind of story that gets under your skin, and I think whether there was another outlet for more episodes or not, we'd still be following it because we want to chase down some of these answers. We don't know who wrote those notes, and who for sure built the bomb," Barbara explained to The Thrillist. "Plus, we also have a long interview with Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong — no one's ever been able to get this unbelievable character on camera before, so there are some deep dives that would be great to get into. We'd love to do a second season."
And what about Jessica Hoopsick, who admitted to she was involved in the heist and responsible for picking Brian as the victim? "Technically, she could be charged but every agency we spoke to said there was no interest," Barbara added.
