The second season on Netflix’s hit show Mindhunter dropped in August and fans are pretty happy about how the new episodes turned out.
The show is based on true events surrounding how the FBI established their behavioral science unit in the 1970s to study serial killers and other murderers. In real life, as in the show, the investigators interviewed serial killers to try to learn how their minds worked, back when “serial killer” was a new concept.
Here are photos of the real-life killers and the actors who portray them in the show.
1. David Berkowitz: “The Son of Sam” – Played by Oliver Cooper
2. Charles Manson – Played by Damon Herriman
3. Charles “Tex” Watson – Played by Christopher Backus
4. Dennis Rader: The BTK Killer – Played by Sonny Valicenti
5. William “Junior” Pierce: Played by Michael Filipowich
6. William Henry Hance: Played by Corey Allen
7. Elmer Wayne Henley, Jr.: Played by Robert Aramayo
8. Ed Kemper: Played by Cameron Britton
9. Wayne Williams: Played by Christopher Livingston
10. Paul Bateson: Played by Morgan Kelly
I don’t know about you, but I’m really hoping that Mindhunter keeps going.
