Crime thriller series Mindhunter is soon returning for a second season, much to the delight of fans everywhere.

Based on the non-fiction book of the same name written by two former FBI agents, the series appealed to many peoples curious fascination with serial killers.

So, without further ado, what can we expect from season two, when will it air and who will be cast in it?

When is Mindhunter season 2 out?

The newest season will start in just over months time, on 16 August.

Co-executive producer David Fincher announced the premiere date on KCRQs The Treatment podcast.

Back in May, Charlize Theron – who is also an executive producer – had revealed an August air date, but didnt specify when.

What is Mindhunter season 2 about?

In 2017, Fincher teased that the next season would cover the Atlanta murders, a notorious series of murders that were carried out between 1979-1981, claiming the lives of at least 21 people.



In his most recent interview on The Treatment, he confirmed this and gave a bit of background on how they approached the subject matter.

He said: You could probably do three seasons on the Atlanta Child Murders.

Its a huge and sweeping and tragic story. We couldnt do it justice in the background of our nine hours. We had to choose to dramatise.

No further details about the storyline have been revealed so far, but its interesting to note how much the FBI had developed its criminal profiling system by the late 1970s.

Could this mean the team may be a little larger than it was in the first installment?

Is there a Mindhunter season 2 trailer?

No trailer has yet been released for the upcoming season, which makes its imminent release all the more exciting!
