'Mindhunter' Season 2: BTK Killer begins a series of gory crimes as fans celebrate binge-watching David Fincher-led Netflix show
With serial killers like Charles Manson, David Berkowitz aka Son of Sam, Edmund Kemper, Wayne Williams and the BTK Killer coming into the spotlight, there is much mayhem and hysteria around the storyline
'Mindhunter' is back with a bang with its second instalment on Netflix, and the David-Fincher directed series seems to have piqued the curiosity of several fans. With serial killers like Charles Manson, David Berkowitz aka Son of Sam, Edmund Kemper, Wayne Williams and the BTK Killer coming into the spotlight, there is much mayhem and hysteria around the storyline.
Following the plot of season one, special agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and William Tench (Holt McCallany) try to delve deeper into criminal minds along with expert psychologist Dr. Wendy Carr (Anna Torv). Apart from the gory and grisly crimes, the FBI agents also have several personal issues to sort out.
With all the suspense around the new season, Twitter is full of posts from fans and followers of 'Mindhunter' from across the globe. One user wrote: "So excited for 'Mindhunter2' but I’m gonna watch it all in 10 hours and go back to being depressed because I have to wait another 2 years for the next season," while another one dropped a spoiler in a tweet, "'You're my first patient to walk out of here in 25 years.' Mindhunter2."
Meanwhile, a die-hard fan put out a clip on the micro-blogging site that imitated the theme song of the series. "I'm a huge fan of David Fincher's 'Mindhunter' so tonight I decided to try and re-create the opening titles using some stuff I got on eBay & unsplash images I composited together for the "flashes". I'm really happy with how it turned out," his tweet read.

For some, it turned out to be just the right time for release. "I've just finished season 1... Perfect timing!" one Twitter user wrote, alongside a still of FBI agent Holden Ford from the series.
Another one, who watched the series, said: "I’m halfway through ep1 and I’m rapidly realising that this might actually be my new favourite show. 'MindhunterSeason2'."
"Mindhunter day !! I’m so so stoked, thank god I have no plans. It’s been soooo long," one user wrote, and another tweeted: "Happy MindhunterSeason2 day! Seriously up and showered by 9am unheard of on a work day! Can only see a few eps tho coz of work working all weekend so viewing in blocks. I’ll cope! NetflixUK eventually it’s here!"
The show chronicles around "the '70s, post-Manson, post-Son of Sam, post-Zodiac" era and will focus on the Atlanta child murders between 1979 and 1981. Before you watch the series, here's a recap of each character, where they were at the end of season one and where the new plot may take them.
