‘Mindhunter’ Season Two Will Focus on the Atlanta Child Murders. Here’s Why That Matters.

The reason that we don’t hear more about Black serial killers is not because they don’t exist. Rather, it’s because their victims are rarely newsworthy enough to get the same amount of coverage as white victims.

Charles Manson is finally dead. Good. A cult leader with a cult following, he inspired various fan clubs and Tumblr blogs, and had several hybristophiliacs fall “in love” with him during his time behind bars. The same is true of the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Ted Bundy. White serial killers (I don’t care that Manson is “technically not a serial killer,” I did not come to argue with y’all) achieve notoriety and fandoms, even the most depraved and gruesome of them, like Albert Fish and Andrei Chikatilo.

We get to learn intimate details about their motivations for killing and how their childhood may or may not have

‘Mindhunter’ Renewed For A Second Season On Netflix

People Magazine Investigates Returns for Season 2

A suspected serial killer still at-large, a toddler who disappeared in the woods and a Connecticut family held hostage in their home: These will be three of the 12 cases spotlighted when People Magazine Investigates returns next month for its second season, on Investigation Discovery.

The breakout hit show, which draws from the original reporting of PEOPLE’s award-winning true crime team, will premiere season 2 on Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. ET.

Among the cases that will be featured in the 12-episode season is an in-depth look at the hunt for the “Golden State Killer” — also known as the “The East Area Rapist” and “The Original Nightstalker” — who is suspected of killing 12 people and sexually assaulting dozens of others in California in the ’70s and ’80s.

Other episodes will focus on 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who

Mindhunter, season 1 review: so much more than your average serial killer drama

Serial killers have never been out of fashion but from The Fall to Hannibal via season one of True Detective and bonkers BBC thriller Rellik television has lately done an especially roaring trade in manic murderers. Every modern example of the genre carries in its bloodstream the DNA of Se7en and Zodiac, David Fincher’s poised and masterful contributions to the canon. Adapted from the writings of a pioneering FBI serial killer profiler, Mindhunter, Fincher’s new Netflix collaboration would, it was generally assumed, see the director going back to the bloody well a third time. He is, after all, the laureate of the gruesome cutaway, a peerless conjurer of claustrophobic dread. 

But Mindhunter – Fincher is executive producer and directed four episodes –  quickly reveals itself to be something else entirely. The 10-part first season – a further four are reportedly planned – is a trenchant argument against the cult

5 more ideas for ‘Kevin Can Wait’ season 2 by me, a very smart TV executive who gets it

CBS announced in early August that Erinn Hayes’ character Donna in Kevin Can Wait would be DEAD when the show returns in season 2. The move, defended as being “right and fair” by an executive producer, is a means for the show to integrate Kevin James’ King of Queens costar Leah Remini into the cast. Mashable is proud to have another CBS executive’s take on the situation.

Hello, I am an executive at CBS and I’ll just come out and say it: killing Kevin’s wife in the lighthearted comedy show Kevin Can Wait and replacing her with Leah Remini was literally our only option.

If you can’t see that, I don’t know what to tell you. Yes, our family sitcom was the number one new comedy on television, but the writing was on the wall: if we did not canonically murder one of the
