The second season of Netflix’s Mindhunter will premiere August 16, according to Deadline.
The series stars Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff (Hamilton, Spring Awakening) and Holt McCallany as Agents Holden Ford and Bil Tench in the FBI Behavioral Science Unit. The pair help local police find serial killers (and get ahead of them) by better understanding their psychology through working with already imprisoned murderers.
The series is based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, written by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, who is also the inspiration for Groff’s character. The series, from executive producer David Fincher, premiered in 2017.
Season 2 fast-forwards to the Atlanta child murders of 1979 to 1981, where 28 African-Americans were killed. McCallany also hinted that Charles Manson and David Berkowitz could pop up this season.
