While it initially flew under the radar, the first season of 'Mindhunter' was up there with one of Netflix's best original series.
Drawing heavily on crime procedurals and all shot with David Fincher's trademark slickness, 'Mindhunter' was a grizzly, perfectly-pitched rip of psychological horror. Not only that, the dynamic between Holt McCallany and Jonathan Groff was a fascinating one.
Anyway, the second season was announced pretty shortly after 'Mindhunter' first debuted, but no release date was officially set for the series. In fact, no confirmation - other than executive producer Charlize Theron dropping it casually in the middle of a Howard Stern interview recently - has been given.

According to Theron, 'Mindhunter' Season 2 will land on Netflix some time in August. Seeing as how 'Stranger Things' Season 3 is coming in July, you can likely guess that it'll arrive either on the second or third Friday in August.
Details on the second season are light, however David Fincher previously confirmed that it would focus on the Atlanta child murders that took place between 1979 and 1981.
On top of that, it was also confirmed that Charles Manson would appear in the second season, and will be played by Damon Herriman. Just to make it even weirder, Herriman will also play Manson in Quentin Tarantino's 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'.
