Season 2 of Mindhunter could see the return of serial killer Edmund Kemper
Cameron Brittons's performance in the first season was sensational.
While most of the TV world has their eyes firmly fixed in the direction of Westeros, it's easy to forget that there are some other incredible shows returning this year and after dazzling us all in the first season, it appears that Mindhunter is about to find more subjects.
At the end of the last season, we saw Agent Ford's (Jonathan Groff) interview methods being called into question after a leaked tape brought the Serial Crime Unit into disrepute.
However, with a second season set for release this year, it appears that Holden and Bill could be relying on some help from an old acquaintance as they investigate some new killers.
At present, Cameron Britton can be seen in The Umbrella Academy on Netflix and during a recent interview with Radio Times, he was asked if he makes an appearance in Season Two.
“Netflix pulls those memories out of me. I hope I’m in it and I can’t remember, it’s a blind spot," said Britton.
Mmm. We're not exactly expert investigators like Holden and Bill, but that answer does sound unnecessarily cryptic to us.
If Britton does return, we certainly won't object because his unnerving, threatening, and oddly charismatic performance as the serial killer Edmund Kemper was superb.
He even earned an Emmy nomination in 2018 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of the character.
With regards to the plot for Season Two, The Hashtag Show previously reported that it will see the two FBI agents meeting the infamous murderer/cult leader, Charles Manson.
After creating a commune in California, Manson's followers committed a series of nine murders at four locations in July and August 1969. In 1971, he was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of seven people, all of which members of the group carried out at his instruction.
Manson was also convicted of first-degree murder for two other deaths. He died in prison at the age of 83 in 2017.
Elsewhere, Manson devotee Tex Watson and The Son of Sam, David Berkowitz, are also rumoured to be interviewed by Holden and Bill in the new season.
Berkowitz pleaded guilty to murdering eight people with a .44 Caliber gun in New York City during the summer of 1976.
The same report states that Elmer Wayne Henley, William Pierce, Jr, Paul Bateson, Dennis Rader, and The Stocking Strangler, William Henry Hance, will also be featured in Season Two.
As for the main plot/investigation, Season Two of Mindhunter will be examining the Atlanta Child Murders; a string of 28 mostly child murders, that shook Atlanta from 1979-1981.
As reported by The Playlist, the director of Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac, David Fincher, will return behind the lens for some of the episodes. Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and Carl Franklin (House of Cards, Homeland) will also be directing episodes for Season Two.
During a previous chat with Screenrant, meanwhile, Holt McCallany (Bill) said that David Fincher (creator of Mindhunter) has plans to develop the story over five seasons.
"You know I’m in small, you know, supporting parts, peripheral parts," he said.
"And so it was a big deal for me to be invited back by David in one of the leads. Because you know I believe in his talent, you know, and I know that you know, he wants to do five years of this show. Five seasons of these characters and so I’m hopeful, you know I don’t take anything for granted."
Bring it on.
