David Fincher's Netflix Series MINDHUNTER Season 2 Has a Premiere Date!
I’ve been eagerly waiting for the second season of David Fincher’s Netflix series Mindhunter to drop and thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer!
Mindhunter is set to return on August 16th, which is nearly two years after the initial launch of the twisted and fascinating crime drama. If you haven’t watched the series yet, it is a must see. This is one hell of a great show that will suck you right in.
Mindhunter is based on the true crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker, and it chronicles the beginning of serial killer profiling in the FBI.
The story is set in the year 1977, “in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation – Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), who originate the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit within the Training Division at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. They interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think, with the hope of applying this knowledge to solving ongoing cases.”
The first season put a lot of focus on the FBI agents interviewing Ed Kemper, who was fantastically played by Cameron Britton. We don’t know much about what Season 2 will entail, but I’ve heard rumors that it will involve the Atlanta Child Murders from the ’70s and ’80s. 28 people were thought to have been murdered between 1979 and 1981. We also know that infamous killer and cult leader Charles Manson will fit into the story in some way. He will be played by Damon Herriman.
