Inspired by the real-life early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling, Mindhunter follows two FBI agents, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, who team up with psychologist (Anna Torv) to start studying serial killers. But their groundbreaking tactics may not be enough in Mindhunter season 2, which has Groff's Agent Holden Ford questioning his resolve while investigating the Atlanta Child Murders, in which at least 28 children, adolescents, and adults were killed in between 1979 and 1981. The trio also catch back up with Ed Kemper (Cameron Britton) and meet up with an imprisoned Charles Manson.
