Netflix’s new series Mindhunter just premiered on October 13th, but will it have a second season? Recently, executive producer David Fincher spoke with Billboard about the future of the TV show.
The crime drama follows “FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) [as they] study the damaged psyches of serial killers in an attempt to understand and catch them, and in the process pioneer the development of modern serial killer profiling.” Anna Torv and Hannah Gross also star.
As of now, it’s unclear if Netflix has officially greenlit a second season of Mindhunter or not. According to TVLine, the streaming service has not formally renewed the series but a second season is more than likely. Additionally, EP David Fincher has already teased plans for season two, telling Billboard the new season will focus on the Atlanta child murders.
Mindhunter was renewed by Netflix for season two before season one premiered.
“Next year 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.”
What do you think? Have you started watching Mindhunter? Would you watch a second season?
