It’s time to return to the darkest recesses of the human mind.
The acclaimed crime series from director David Fincher – Mindhunter – is returning to Netflix for a second run this year.

Inspired by true events , the series has a fascinating basis in real-life cases and will explore the mind of iconic cult leader Charles Manson in the new season.
But when can we expect it?
