Pretty much everyone who watched the first season of the Netflix true crime thriller Mindhunter when it debuted in 2017 has been chomping at the bit, waiting for season two to hit the streaming service.
A year ago a casting list for season two was leaked onto the internet and it purportedly revealed some of the serial killers that Mindhunter will be featuring in the second season including Paul Bateson, “Son of Sam” David Berkowitz, William Henry Hance, Elmer Wayne Henley, William Pierce, Jr., Charles Manson, and the “BTK Killer” Dennis Rader.
Netflix announced last week that season two of Mindhunter will be released on August 16th, and on Thursday they dropped a huge batch of new images from the second season highlighting some of the names just mentioned.
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.
Inspired by true events, the new season stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Joe Tuttle, Albert Jones, Stacey Roca, Michael Cerveris, Lauren Glazier, and Sierra McClain.
