This Week in TV: 'Mindhunter,' 'The Terror: Infamy,' 'The Righteous Gemstones'

TV NEWS - on 12 Aug 1919

Halloween is still a couple of months away, but the week of Aug. 12 brings a couple of very creepy series — one on cable and one on streaming — back to viewers. Also on tap are the latest HBO series from Danny McBride, a couple of stand-up specials and a cult favorite on cable.

Here is  The Hollywood Reporter's rundown of some of the coming week's highlights. It would be next to impossible to watch everything, but let  THR point the way to worthy options each week. All times are ET/PT unless noted.

The Big Show

Almost two years after its first season, Netflix's eerie drama Mindhunter opens its second season on Friday. The show jumps ahead a couple of years as well, putting Ford Jonathan Groff, Tench Holt McCallany and Carr Anna Torv in the middle of the Atlanta child murders case, the investigation for which stretched from 1979-81.

The new season also features more conversations with Edmund Kemper Cameron Britton and the team interviewing a host of other killers, including Charles Manson Damon Herriman, who also played Manson in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz — all while the BTK killer the ADT technician seen in several vignettes in season one continues killing people in Kansas. The new season will also further explore the emotional toll profiling murderers takes on the lead characters spoiler: It's heavy.
