There hasn't been a huge amount of information released about the second series of the show however in an interview with Billboard in 2017, director David Fincher revealed that it would cover a series of murders in Atlanta from 1979-1981 where 28 African-American children and adults were killed. Wayne Williams was tried and convicted for two of the killings.
