The second season of this critically praised Netflix series is set to cover the Atlanta Child murder cases that took place from 1979-1981.
When the first season of 'Mindhunter' made its debut on Netflix, it was praised by critics and the audience alike. The series also saw the return of David Fincher in 2017, and it is a slow-burning detective drama that tells the story about how criminal profiling for the FBI started in the 1970s. The series introduces us to Agent Holden Ford and Agent Bill Tench who are a part of the Bureau's Behavioural Sciences unit where they work together to understand patterns in murderous behavior by interviewing incarcerated serial killers. The show was renewed for a second season before the first season even aired and the fans are now waiting eagerly to see what the second season of the series has to offer them. Here is everything you need to know about the second season of 'Mindhunter'.
During an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM, Charlize Theron, who acts as the show's executive producer revealed that the second season will drop in August. However, the exact date in August has yet to be revealed but I'm guessing we 'll find out soon enough.
Netflix has not revealed much about what is going to happen in the second season, but through various sources, some information has slipped out. Fincher, in an interview with Billboard in 2017 revealed that season 2 would cover a notorious series of murders in Atlanta from 1979-81, which saw 28 children, teens, and adults, all of who were African-Americans, targeted and murdered. Wayne Williams was tried and convicted for two of the killings.
From the original cast of season 1, Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv as psychology professor Wendy Carr will be back to open up more cases and delve into the psyche of a serial killer. It is unclear if Cameron Britton will appear as Kemper in the second season. It is also rumored that Damon Herriman might be playing the role of Charles Manson.
David Fincher has only directed the first two episodes of the first season and he is confirmed to be back in the director's chair in the second season. As reported by The Playlist, Fincher will direct the season premiere and the finale of Season 2. Apart from Fincher, Andrew Dominik is set to direct two episodes, and Carl Franklin will be handling the rest of it. Dominik will be working for Television for the very first time, and he seems a good fit for the role as he is known for his dark, meditative collaborations with Brad Pitt and the violent crime drama 'Chopper'. Franklin is already a well-known name in the television world who has directed multiple episodes of shows like 'House of Cards', '13 Reasons Why', and 'The Leftovers'.
