Charlize Theron Just Let The Mindhunter Season 2 Release Date Slip
The first season of Mindhunter dropped almost two years ago, and fans of the show are desperate for any news of the second instalment. Set in 1977, the show explores the psychology of serial killers and the ways in which we catch murderers, so it's perfect for the current true crime boom.

Talking about the crime drama to Howard, she said: "Season 2 is coming out in August. Yeah, can't wait. Deep, dark...it's wonderful." There is no set date just yet, so mark off August - well, the one or two days it'll take you to stream the whole thing.

Netflix officially confirmed the second season on November 30, 2017, posting a video with the line: "We need to talk to more subjects."
Director David Fincher confirmed that the second season will look at the events of 79-81, "next year we're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African American music which will be nice" he said, speaking to Billboard.
"The music will evolve. It's intended to support what's happening with the show and for the show to evolve radically between seasons".

So far, that's pretty much all we know - other than that we're madly excited to find out exactly what's going to happen and just how deep and dark it's all going to get.
The first season was nominated for several awards and highly acclaimed by both viewers and critics, so it's likely that it's taken them two years to get the second season up to scratch. Either way, it's likely to be a wild ride.
