Oscar-nominated director Joe Berlinger takes us inside his new movie, starring Zac Efron as serial killer Ted Bundy.

In Season 2, FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) will probe further into the psyches of and hunt notorious serial killers with help from psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv).

David Fincher recently revealed that Mindhunter Season 2 will be released on August 16. It will explore the Atlanta Child Murders of 1979-81, Charles Manson, and David Berkowitz, the "Son of Sam." The executive producer admitted that they could have done multiple seasons on the Atlanta Child Murders, but they had to "dramatize" it and show why the agents are brought in when they are and how they navigate the multi-jurisdictional crime.
