True crime fans were beyond pleased with the first season of Netflix’s “Mindhunter”. Viewers witnessed two agents, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, as they developed the method of profiling that law enforcement agencies use today.
Starring Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallanay, Anna Torv, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, and Cameron Britton, season one of“Mindhunter” is set in 1979 and centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench (McCallany) along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI Agent Holden Ford (Groff). Together they interview serial killers to help them solve current murders and to learn more about the minds of killers.
In the first season the two agents met with some of the world’s most infamous serial killers, now season two is on its way. This time around the agents will delve into some of the most infamous murders in history, the Manson Family murders. Led by charismatic cult leader Charles Manson, the “family” slaughtered pregnant Sharon Tate and several others in a two-night killing spree.
Manson won’t be the only name you’ll recognize. Word is that this season we’ll meet David Berkowitz “The Son of Sam” who has a body count of eight as well as Elmer Wayne Henley known for the Houston Mass Murders that took the lives of over 28 young men and boys. The team will also grill Dennis Rader, who you may know as the “BTK Killer”, played by Sonny Valicenti. The agents will also meet star wannabe turned killer Paul Bateson, a background actor who starred in The Exorcist, who targeted the LGBTQ community between 1977 and 1978. Wayne Williams will also be featured. He’s known for the murder of 28 African American children in the Atlanta area but was only convicted of two and sentenced to two life terms.
It sounds like season two of “Mindhunter” is going to be killer (sorry, I couldn’t resist). As soon as the premiere date is announced we will let you know.
