The first season of David Fincher’s serial killer series Mindhunter was awesome and very fresh. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it now! If you have, you’ll be happy to know that Season 2 will air on Netflix in August of 2019!
Charlize Theron is a producer on the show, and she announced the release date while a guest on the Howard Stern Show.

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 was based on the FBI agents interviewing Ed Kemper, who was brilliantly played by Cameron Britton. We don’t know much about what Season 2 will come with but one thing is for sure it is going to be awesome, I’ve heard rumors that it will involve the Atlanta Child Murders from the ’70s and ’80s. We also know that infamous killer and cult leader Charles Manson will also be involved into the story in some way. He will be played by Damon Herriman.
