Here's the exact date Mindhunter season two will be dropping on Netflix

Oh, dang.

Netflix have revealed the season two of Mindhunter will officially be dropping on August 16, and our murder-fascinated bodies are ready.

The streaming giant announced the news this afternoon, saying that there wasn't really a clever, "funny" way to inform viewers of this upcoming addition so they just decided to tweet it out.

And yeah, fair enough.

It is a show about serial killers, after all.

Season two of the series will focus on Holden Ford and Bill Tench meeting infamous murderer and cult leader, Charles Manson.

After creating a commune in California, Manson's followers committed a series of nine murders at four locations in July and August 1969.

In 1971, he was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of seven people, all of which members of the group carried out at his instruction.

Manson was also convicted of first-degree murder for two other deaths. He died at the age of 83 in prison.

Elsewhere, Manson devotee Tex Watson and The Son of Sam, David Berkowitz, are expected to also be interviewed by Holden and Bill in the new season.

So yeah, not exactly the most "funny" of shows, we think you'll agree.

Mindhunter season two drops onto Netflix on Friday, August 16.
