For those who would like to watch the finale, or catch up on previous episodes, but they do not have a cable subscription, you may be looking for alternative ways to watch the TV show. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch Bravo on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following over-the-top, cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Bravo is one of 85 channels included in the main Fubo bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch most shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them.

When it comes to the real people behind the story, E! News reports that the show is based on the podcast and Los Angeles Times articles titled “Dirty John” by Christopher Goffard. The real names of the characters are Debra Newell and John Meehan.
Newell, who is a successful interior designer, opened up to E! News about what made her initially get involved with Meehan in real life. Newell admitted, “He was a doctor, so I thought, ‘OK, he’s got a career.’ His charm … his interest, he said all the right things, and he had a family. I thought he had it all that I was looking for.”
The finale episode of Dirty John is titled “This Young Woman Fought Like Hell” and the synopsis of what to expect states, “John and Debra’s relationship comes to a head in an unexpected way.”
As for what the real Debra Newell has to say about the show, Forbes reported her saying, “Overall, seeing my family’s story out there has been a good one because the good people won!”
