Mindhunter - Season 2 - Damon Herriman Cast as Charles Manson

Collider has exclusively revealed that Damon Herriman (Justified, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, J. Edgar) has been cast as Charles Manson in the upcoming 2nd season of Netflix's Mindhunter. Collider notes Herriman "shot his scenes in July".

Collider's sources note that Herriman's appearance in Mindhunter will be in the 1980s when Manson was already in prison which line up with previous reports that the second season will feature the Atlanta Child Murders, which took place between 1979 and 1981.

Other serial killers expected to show up include the Son of Sam and, the BTK Killer, who appeared throughout the first season, though he was never mentioned by name.

Back in April, The Playlist revealed the director slate for the eight-episode second season which includes Carl Franklin, Andrew Dominik, David Fincher himself. The Playlist notes that Season 2 will focus on the Atlanta child murders during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Heading to Southern Georgia, “Mindhunter” season two will focus on the infamous Atlanta child murders of the late 1970s and early 80s, which featured the relatively uncommon case of an African-American serial killer —in real life, Wayne Williams, who was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment for killing two adult men, but never convicted of the deaths of twenty three murders of young children (though it’s unclear how close to the real events the show will hew).

Meanwhile, Fincher has found his directors for the follow-up season and sources tell us there are only three filmmakers scheduled this time; Fincher himself directing the premiere and finale episodes like he did in season one, Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James,” “Killing Me Softly”) will helm another two, and filmmaker Carl Franklin (“Devil In A Blue Dress,” “One False Move”), who’s become something of a journeyman director on TV in recent years (“House Of Cards,” ” The Leftovers,” “13 Reasons Why,” “Vinyl” and more), will direct the rest and bulk of the show.

Last I heard, there were only eight episodes this season; the inaugural one, which featured four filmmakers — Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm, Andrew Douglas and Fincher — had ten.
