SERIAL KILLER THRILLER
MINDHUNTER junkies will be desperate to begin their binge of season two; two years after the first season captivated and creeped out its audience. Its key cast returns, including Jonathan Groff (picutred) as agent Holden Ford, and Anna Torv as Wendy Carr; with Torv’s Secret City co-star Damon Herriman set to make a chilling appearance as mass murderer Charles Manson (a role he’s also playing in Quentin Tarantino’s new flick, OnceUponATimeInHollywood). Based on the shocking Atlanta child murders of the 1970s, Ford leads a new investigation into the disappearance and deaths of at least 28 black children and young adults, which baffled authorities over a two-year period. The Klu Klux Klan is suspected but Ford is not convinced and that puts him at odds with his own team and local investigators. For those true crime
by former FBI agent John Douglas, who, along with his former partner at the FBI, Robert K Ressler, was a pioneer in criminal profiling and the study of serial killers (a term Ressler is credited with coining). This is Law&Order: SVU in the early days, without all the modern surveillance tools. While this season runs to just eight episodes, another season is expected to get the green light.
