At the time, suspected serial killer Wayne Williams was arrested and sentenced to life in prison for the 1981 killing of two adult men and is believed by police to be responsible for at least 23 of the 30 Atlanta murders, which saw 28 African-American children taken too soon.

"With help from psychologist Wendy Carr, they apply their groundbreaking behavioural analysis to hunting notorious serial killers."

The author of the original book of which the true-crime series is based, John Douglas, previously revealed that the forthcoming instalment will also feature David Berkowitz, also known as Son of Sam, and murderous cult leader Charles Manson, played by Damon Herriman.

Berkowitz (who was also called the .44 Caliber Killer by the media) was an American serial killer who terrorised the New York City area from July 1976 to July 1977.

He killed six people and wounded seven in that year by shooting them, and also claimed to have stabbed two women using a hunting knife on Christmas eve in 1965. One of those women was Michelle Forman, and the other was never identified.

Created by Joe Penhall and executive produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron, the show's first season was praised by critics for its unique spin on the crime genre.
