Intense, exhilarating and all-consuming, American television series Mindhunter was successful right from the start. After just six months since the release of season one, Netflix reportedly announced the workings on a second season, and after waiting for the drop since late last year, it is in sight.

Based on the book by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, the story follows FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they attempt to understand and catch serial killers through studying their psyche. With many cases surrounding real life sources, and produced by award-winner David Fincher, the film has become a fan favourite. So what can we expect from the second season?

Set to drop on November 30, the series will span across just eight episodes, and although a short series, we can expect longer run times than normal. This most recent season will see a focus on real-life murderers of African-American children committed in Atlanta between the years of 1979 – 1981, following on from the first season. In keeping with the format of Mindhunter, the series will profile the serial killers, rather than the killings themselves.

In terms of the cast, Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany will return as the starring duo with Anna Torv also returning as the psychology professor Wendy Carr. It is not confirmed which serial killers will have a feature for season 2, but reports have suggested that casting directors are looking for someone to assume the role of Charles Manson as well as Tex Watson.

A trailer has not been released as of yet, so stay tuned for more information.
