Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter‘ is one of the best series they have created to date. Fans of the series, inspired by real serial killers, will be thrilled to learn that the show will be taking a stab at a second season.
Wait, there’s more. When the show’s director-producer David Fincher talked with Billboard recently about the show’s soundtrack and he revealed a bit of the plot of season 2.
Next year we’re looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we’ll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice,” Fincher stated. “The music will evolve. It’s intended to support what’s happening with the show and for the show to evolve radically between seasons.”
For those of you who are not familiar with the “Atlanta child murders” Fincher is referring to let me fill you in. Between 1979 and 1981 as serial killer stalked and murdered 28 African-American children and young adults. 23-year-old Wayne Williams convicted for two of the murders ( Jimmy Ray Payne and Nathaniel Cater) and sentenced to 2 life terms. While he still claims that he is innocent, law officials believe there are more than the 28 murders he is said to have committed but has never been tried for. FBI agent John E. Douglas, the agent Jonathan Groff’s character was inspired by, was the profiler on that case.
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.
