Filming for the Netflix series “Mindhunter” has attracted attention around the Pittsburgh region, after season one was filmed in various locations, including Coraopolis, Ambridge and Carnegie Mellon University.

Scenes for season two of the series were filmed in July at Sewickley’s municipal building. Borough Manager Kevin Flannery said on Sept. 11 that Sewickley received $6,000 for use of the building. The production company, Late Seventies Productions, had previously agreed to cover any costs related to the use of borough employees, an agreement they have honored, according to Flannery.

The first season of “Mindhunter” debuted in October of 2017. According to the entertainment news platform Digital Spy, season two will likely air in 2019. The series, a crime drama, features actors Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, who play the role of FBI agents. Actress Anna Torv plays a psychologist in the series, which is set in the late 1970s.

According to TIME magazine, the “Mindhunter” series is based on a book of the same name, written by former FBI agent John Douglas. In the book, Douglas sketches the personalities of various serial killers he interviewed, including Charles Manson.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
