The crime-psycho-thriller-drama's second season will see the return of murderer Ed Kemper, but it will also deal with Charles Manson - played here by Damon Herriman, who also played the cult leader in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Based on true events, Season 2 will follow Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) as they work to solve a spate of child killings in Atlanta between 1979 and 1981, and try to bring the Son of Sam serial killer to justice.

The trailer certainly makes it look just as harrowing as it sounds.

The season is set to drop on Netflix less than two weeks from now, on 16 August.

The new season stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Joe Tuttle, Albert Jones, Stacey Roca, Michael Cerveris, Lauren Glazier, and Sierra McClain.
