Mindhunter Season Two Trailer Gives First Look At Charles Manson And Son Of Sam
Audiences around the world were captivated with Mindhunter, the drama exploring how two FBI agents developed a psychological blueprint for catching serial killers.
It's been more than a year since the show aired and now we've been given our first look at season two.
We get to see agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) talking to renowned serial killer Ed Kemper about trying to track their next killer.
We also get to see snippets of the upcoming season, including a shot of cult leader Charles Manson and also Son of Sam, according to Uproxx, aka David Richard Berkowitz, the man who killed eight people during the summer of 1976.
The second season will be focusing on the Atlanta murders of 1979-81 where at least 28 children, adolescents and adults were killed.
The official synopsis for MINDHUNTER season two reads: "FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench probe further into the psyches of those who have done the unthinkable. With help from psychologist Wendy Carr, they apply their groundbreaking behavioral analysis to hunting notorious serial killers."
Along with David Fincher, directors this season also include Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James ) and Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress).
There'll be nine episodes this time, compared to the first season's 10 - but that should be plenty to keep you happy for the time-being.
Confirming that we'd be getting our second series mid-August while speaking on the KCRW's The Treatment podcast, executive producer David Fincher discussed the programme's approach to depicting serial killers, and how it differs from the likes of Se7en, which he directed.
"We really wanted to drive a stake through the heart of the idea of the serial killer as this glorified comic book super villain," he said of the show.
Charlize Theron, who is another of the show's executive producers, also referred to the forthcoming season as 'deep', 'dark' and 'wonderful' when she appeared on SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show earlier this year - which sound like three words we can all get on board with.
MINDHUNTER will be released on Netflix on 16 August.
