David Fincher Reveals Where Netflix Show ‘Mindhunter’ Will Go In Season Two
The highly rated Netflix show Mindhunter has only been out for 10 days but details have already been teased for the next season. Look, I'd be lying if I said I haven't already finished the first 10 episodes in the first season as well as looked at the real video interviews with the serial killers featured in the programme.
While Netflix hasn't formally announced a second instalment for the show, director and executive producer David Fincher has let slip where he wants to take the narrative.
Speaking about the musical score to Billboard, he elaborated on what will happen next. He said: "Next year, we're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice. The music will evolve."
Those murders took place between 1979 and 1981, where at least 28 African-American children and adults were slaughtered. Then 23-year-old Wayne Williams was convicted for two of the murders and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences.

He has maintained he's innocent ever since he was arrested and claimed local law enforcement pinned the murders on him to cover up evidence that members of the Klu Klux Klan were involved.
If you've somehow missed the memo about Mindhunter, which is currently sitting at 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, it's about serial killers. While there are plenty of movies and TV series about murderous criminals, few delve into the psychology of them the way that Mindhunter does.

Set in the late 1970s, the show follows two FBI agents, Holden Ford (Jonathan Gross) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) as they interview serial killers across the US (before the term serial killer had even been properly coined) to build a psychological profile that could help them stop criminals in the future.
It's been praised partly for the actors who play the serial killers.
Cameron Britton's portrayal of Edmund Kemper, is equal parts brilliant and terrifying for its likeness. If you've seen the show, then check out the real-life interview with Kemper.
Born in 1948, Kemper abducted and murdered several women in the 1970s, not to mention his own mother and grandparents. His victims were typically young female hitchhikers, who he would lure into his vehicle before driving them to secluded areas to kill them. He then took the corpses back to his home to be decapitated and dismembered.
He's one of three serial killers featured in the first season of Mindhunter, but they're all well behind bars by the time Ford and Tench interview them.
So it will be interesting to see how the second instalment deals with a rampaging murderer on the loose.
