Mindhunter was our favourite crime series in 2017.
We’ve known for a while that it was on its way back this year, and now we know when.
Digital Spy reports that series producer David Fincher spilled the beans during a podcast.
Netflix, on its official Twitter feed, then confirmed the information.
Set in 1977 – in the early days of criminal psychology and criminal profiling at the Federal Bureau of Investigation –Mindhunter revolves around FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), who originate the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit within the Training Division at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. They interview imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think, with the hope of applying this knowledge to solve ongoing cases.
Series two is said to pick up between 1979 and 1981, two years after the events of season one, and focus on the Atlanta child murders, which were a series of at least 28 killings of African-American children, teenagers and adults.
