Mindhunter did the same, but shook the common approach. The Netflix series, penned by Joe Penhall (King of Thieves),
is based on the true-crime book co-authored by FBI agent John Douglas, who interviewed several serial killers in the ‘70s and ‘80s.
FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) interviews serial killers to understand them better
Mindhunter approaches every subject
slowly. Often the crime doesn’t need to be solved because the killer is behind
bars. The question the series poses is Why? The fictional agents Holden Ford
and Bill Trunch, loosely based on Douglas and agent Robert Ressler, chat with these killers to understand their motivations and how
their minds worked.
two has taken its time, with director and executive producer David Fincher (Se7en, Zodiac) claiming
the delay was due to the scripts not being good enough. But we don't have to wait for much longer. Here’s everything
we know so far.
the plot of Mindhunter season 2?
the first season was about the beginnings of serial killer investigations,
season two picks up when a national interest in notorious murderers starts to spread across America.
This season will cover the harrowing Atlanta Child Murders of 1979 – 1981, in which
28 African-Americans were brutally killed. Wayne Williams was arrested for
the murders, but he’s still steadfast about his innocence. The case has been recently reopened to give closure to the families, so this new focus in Mindhunter will have a strong relevance. Williams will
feature heavily in this season.
Season 2 is set during the Atlanta Child Murders of 1979 - 1981
killer interviews include David Berkowitz, otherwise known as Son of Sam or the
.44 Calibre Killer, who shot six people and led to one of the biggest manhunts
in New York City history.
and Holden will also pay a visit to Charles Manson, who's perhaps the most infamous killer
of all. He created a cult (‘The Manson Family’) in the late ‘60s and murdered
nine people including the pregnant actress Sharon Tate.
The ADT Serviceman (Sonny Valicenti) from season one is heavily implied to be the BTK Strangler
still unclear whether the ADT Serviceman from season one – heavily implied to
be Dennis Rader, the BTK Strangler – will return in more
gloomy and fragmentary scenes. Since BTK wasn't caught until 2005, he’s unlikely to feature as a major plot point. But that makes his brief appearances
all the more unsettling.
in the Mindhunter season 2 cast?
Groff and Holt McCallany return as agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench. Also
returning is Anna Torv, playing psychology professor Wendy Carr - a much
needed female presence in the very male, FBI environment.

But the most intriguing addition to season two is Damon Herriman, who’s not only
playing Charles Manson in Mindhunter but also in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming
film Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. It’ll be interesting to see, after
watching both, how much the character changes.
