Probably not a huge surprise for fans of the show, but Netflix announced today they're renewing Joe Penhall's drama Mindhunter for a second season. "Until I'm taking a shit in my trailer while we're shooting I'm really not going to believe that this job is happening - that's just my MO".

In case you haven't been addicted to the serial-killer drama, the first series was set in the late 1970s as we followed two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that expanded criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. 'Mindhunter' season 2 is coming, ' says the announcement, referencing the show's central premise. Charlize Theron, who won an Oscar for playing a serial killer in "Monster" (2003), is also an executive producer. We had suspected this was the case after hearing Netflix commission season two before season one even aired, but this marks the streaming behemoth's first firm word on the matter. The series is directed by David Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network, Zodiac), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?).

The Atlanta child murders were a series of killings of African-Americans, mostly kids between the ages of 7 and 14, over the course of 1979 to 1981.
