If you immediately binge-watched the first season of Mindhunter when it hit Netflix in October (or if it’s on your “NEED to watch” list), you’ll be thrilled by the news that the spine-tingling series has been renewed for a second season.
The drama stars Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford and Holt McCallany as Bill Tench, both FBI special agents in the Behavioral Science Unit back in 1977, during the early days of criminal psychology and profiling. Along with psychologist Wendy Carr (played by Anna Torv), they are tasked with interviewing imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think — so that they can then use that knowledge to try to solve current and future cases.
This means that the team must delve into the minds of some of the most disturbed criminals of their time, and get up close and personal with real-life monsters.
The show, which was created by Joe Penhall with David Fincher and Charlize Theron on board as producers, is based on the true crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
Given that it was an immediate favorite among enthusiastic (and freaked out!) fans when the first season dropped, we have no doubt that people will be thrilled to learn that there are more creep-tastic stories coming from the Mindhunter folks for at least one more season.
