It’s been two years since the wildly successful first season of Netflix show Mindhunter, which tells the story of the establishment of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit and is based on the true crime book “Mindhunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Unit”. FBI agents Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) pair up with psychologist Wendy Karr (Anna Torv) and together they interview convicted serial killers like Ed Kemper (Cameron Britton). The first season not only dealt with the development of the agents’ theories, but also referenced true cases besides the Kemper case like Monte Ralph Rissell, Jerry Brudos and Richard Speck. The season closed with an allusion to Dennis Radar, also known as the BTK-killer.

The second season, which will premiere on Netflix worldwide, will deal with the story of the Atlanta murders that took place between 1979 and 1981. The original case was one of the biggest investigations of the 20th century and it will be interesting to see how the show will manage to tell the story of the case as well as deepen the background stories of the three main characters, who have all shown personal struggles in the first season.

The first full trailer that was released yesterday provides the first glimpse of the investigation, the private lives of the investigators, but also a highly-anticipated tease of one of the most infamous serial killers of the past century, Charles Manson.

Mindhunter’s second season will air on August 16 on Netflix, check out the trailer below and keep an eye out for our review!


Conny joined her first fandom at the tender age of three and somehow never stopped finding new things to obsess about and love. Her current love is everything Marvel, especially two characters who tend to be frozen at one point or the other. From Drag Race to Harry Potter or musical theatre, as long as it makes her smile (or cry), it’s probably her thing.
