Detectives Holden Ford (played by Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (played by Holt McCallany) will be back on the case when David Fincher’s Mindhunter returns to Netflix for a second season in 2018. The base-on-true-events series focuses on the early days of psychological profiling at the FBI and features Cameron Britton as Edmund Kemper (the Santa Cruz co-ed murderer) and Sonny Valicenti as the ADT Security Man (who most viewers hypothesize will be revealed as the BTK killer).
The series received critical acclaim when it debuted in October, currently holding a 96 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Sonia Saraiya wrote in her review for Variety: “There is a subtle, buried thread of ‘Mindhunter’ that is curious about our collective fascination with these murderers, and when that surfaces, the show approaches brilliance. Even the opening chords of the Talking Heads’ ‘Psycho Killer’ can’t disturb the mood.”
Joe Penhall created the series. David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron, and Cean Chaffin serve as executive producers.

If you haven’t seen Season 1 of Mindhunter yet, peep the trailer and synopsis for Season 1 below.
Official Synopsis: Two FBI agents, fighting the departmental stigma of backroom boys – those who try to complicate the status quo of simple MMO of crime-solving with academics – work to develop an innovative investigative field incorporating psychology as a method to reveal motive. They acknowledge classic crime-solving – Means, Motive, Opportunity – as no longer sufficient because criminality is becoming more complicated as Motive graduates from need & greed, to inexplicable and irrational reasons. They theorize applying deeper psychological evaluation will posit new questions. Simply, asking Why will lead to the Who. This series focuses on the development of two men, two agents, a new criminal field and does so through storylines of visiting the sociopathic mind.
