The show follows FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. Along the way, the agents pioneer the development of modern serial-killer profiling.
This season, amongst other things, focuses heavily of the Charles Manson Family who were responsible for the death of Sharon Tate and a few others, and the trailer for season two provides a glimpse of Manson himself behind bars.
David Berkowitz, aka the Son of Sam, also shows up, as well as the BTK Killer. Along with that, Ford and Tench will dissect the Atlanta Child Murders, where 28 people – most of whom were children – were killed in Atlanta from 1979-1981.

Talking about what we can expect, a spokesperson for Netflix said:
“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 behavioural analysis to hunting notorious serial killers.“
As a bit of background, David Berkowitz, also known as Son of Sam – or the .44 calibre killer) was known for killing six people and injuring a further seven with a gun between July of 1976 and July 1977. Terrorising the city of New York, Berkowitz also claimed the have stabbed two women to death on Christmas eve on 1965.
The killer is still in prison today, serving six life sentences.
Mindhunter season two will be available to you in its entirety come the 16th of August, next Friday.
