Mindhunter: Renewed For Second Season At Netflix

Media outlets are reporting that Netflix have renewed crime drama Mindhunter for a second season.


Mindhunter is set in the 1970’s, exploring the early days of criminal psychology and profiling, where we follow two FBI agents, Holden Ford and Bill Tench, who team up with psychologist Wendy Carr and interview imprisoned serial killers in an attempt to apply this knowledge to solve ongoing cases.


The first season was released on the streaming service over a month ago, receiving critical acclaim in the process. The series is created by Joe Penhall, with David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron and Cean Chaffin serving as executive producers.


A renewal doesn’t come as a surprise to me as I thought the first season was a well-developed slow burn of a series that not only focused on the psyche of serial killers, but also the egotistical nature of Holden Ford. Plus with how the first season ended, a followup seemed a sure thing.


Mindhunter stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, Cotter Smith and Cameron Britton.
