True crime junkies can rejoice, as the smash-hit Netflix show Mindhunter is coming to Cleveland looking for background extras for their second season filming.

Set in 1977 — in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation — Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), who originate the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit within the Training Division at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. They interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think, with the hope of applying this knowledge to solving ongoing cases.

The casting call is open to all ages and takes place at Beachland Ballroom on Sunday, Sept. 2 from noon to 3 p.m. Mindhunter is produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron. The show's second season will be filming in and around Pittsburgh.
