IMDb also suggests that we’ll be seeing Nancy Tench as Stacey Roca, Kay Mason as Lauren Glazier and Sam Strike for one or more episodes as Monte Rissell.

Anna Torv as Wendy Carr, Cameron Britton (serial killer Ed Kemper) and Joe Tuttle as the new FBI agent in the team, Gregg Smith are also set to return.

The Plot Of Mindhunter 2

The trailer Netflix has released suggests that the season will deal with two major storylines- the journey of Charles Manson and the Atlanta child murders that occurred between 1979 and 1981. In addition, it takes on the Son of Sam killer and the prodigal return of the Cameron Britton killer Ed Kemper.

And according to the TV guide, all of that is wrapped up in just 9 episodes. It’s worth noting here that Season 1 had 10 episodes; one more than Season 2 will have.


The Atlanta murders were a series of 28 killings of African-American children, teenagers, and adults. Fincher has also said that music of the show will “evolve” to be connected more to the topic. “More African-American music which will be nice,” he said.
