mindhunter renewed season 2


The crime drama series Mindhunter has been renewed for Season 2 at Netflix. The series, created by Joe Penhall, based on the true crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by  John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker  along with being executive produced by Charlize Theron, David Fincher, Joshua Donen and Cean Chaffin, debuted worldwide on Netflix back in October.  The 1977-set drama follows agents, in the FBI serial crime unit, Holden and Bill, along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), as they interview and study a string of well-known violent offenders in an attempt to find answers, ultimately classifying the serial killer term. Known murderers featured on the first season included the BTK killer, Richard Speck, Jerry Brudos and Edmund Kemper, aka the Co-Ed Killer, who is portrayed by standout Cameron Britton.

The first season ended with an emotional cliffhanger for Holden, as both he and partner Bill begin to experience their own psychological effects from their study. With the announcement of a second season comes speculation about which famous killers will be featured, should the finale events resolve themselves.  Charles Manson has been referred to as a goal get by Holden and David Berkowitz, aka the Son of Sam, has also been heavily mentioned, though both have yet to appear.  Mindhunter is the latest pickup for the streaming giant. Netflix, which currently has the forthcoming final season of House of Cards (another Fincher series) on hiatus after firing its disgraced star Kevin Spacey, recently renewed Jason Bateman’s drama Ozark, true-crime spoof American Vandal and comedies Friends From College and Atypical.  The streamer also handed out a two-season order to Ryan Murphy’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest prequel series, Nurse Ratched, and added The Eddy, a musical drama from La La Land‘s Damien Chazelle.
