Netflix's Mindhunter is set to return for its second season on August 16 - almost two years since the launch of the crime drama.

The release date was first revealed by executive producer David Fincher on KCRW's podcast The Treatment before being confirmed by Netflix.

Jonathan Groff, Anna Torv, and Holt McCallany are returning for the second season. The aim of the endeavor is to learn how to solve new murder cases and how to best teach law enforcement officers about dealing with serial killers.

A central focus of the second season of "Mindhunter" will be the Atlanta Child Murders, a crime spree in Georgia that left 29 mostly African American children, teens, and adults dead in Atlanta.

Mindhunter Season 2 is a show that a lot of people have been waiting for.

While we wait for season two to drop, you can re-watch season one in its entirety on the subscription streaming platform now.

Well, now we know exactly how long "soon" is. Episodes for the follow up season will premiere on Netflix on August 16. Fincher's revelation was in line with Charlize Theron's, who also executive produced the show, statement on The Howard Stern Show that the new season would be out sometime in August.

The next season will describe the Atlanta Child murders story. "They're coming in to throw this federal umbrella over everything to make everyone feel OK about sharing information". But Mindhunter also cast Australian actor Damon Herriman as Charles Manson for its second season.

Oh, and if that's not exciting enough for you, Fincher also revealed that Aussie Andrew Dominik is taking the reins for some of the episodes.
