Mindhunter Season Two Drops On Netflix Today
The time is finally here people: Mindhunter season two is dropping on your Netflix from today.
We get to see agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench(Holt McCallany) back in action as the FBI officers tasked with delving into the sick, twisted and confronting minds of serial killers, rapists and abusers.
Last season we were given the likes of Ed Kemper, Montie Rissell, Jerry Brudos and Richard Speck and it certainly kept us up at night considering these were real people who did depraved things.
So that's why it's exciting to get another round of blood, murder and psychopaths for season two.
Because who needs sleep?
The second season will be focusing on the Atlanta murders of 1979-81 where at least 28 children, adolescents and adults were killed.
The official synopsis for MINDHUNTER season two reads: "FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench probe further into the psyches of those who have done the unthinkable. With help from psychologist Wendy Carr, they apply their groundbreaking behavioural analysis to hunting notorious serial killers."
Along with David Fincher, directors this season also include Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James ) and Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress).
There'll be eight episodes this time, compared to the first season's 10 - but that should be plenty to keep you happy for the time-being.
Confirming that we'd be getting our second series mid-August while speaking on the KCRW's The Treatment podcast, executive producer David Fincher discussed the programme's approach to depicting serial killers, and how it differs from the likes of Se7en, which he directed.
"We really wanted to drive a stake through the heart of the idea of the serial killer as this glorified comic book super villain," he said of the show.
Charlize Theron, who is another of the show's executive producers, also referred to the forthcoming season as 'deep', 'dark' and 'wonderful' when she appeared on SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show earlier this year - which sound like three words we can all get on board with.
Another aspect of the show that's compelling is the music that reflects the time period it is set in - and sure enough we'll get another list of bangers.
Fincher told Billboard: "We're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice."
"The music will evolve. It's intended to support what's happening with the show and for the show to evolve radically between seasons."
Mindhunter season two will be on your Netflix from today.
