Mindhunter Season 2 Release Date: Will Mindhunter Return for a Third Season?

With Mindhunter, a slow-burning detective drama about the beginning of the FBI’s criminal profiling program in the 1970s, David Fincher made his comeback to television in 2017.

Agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) of the bureau’s Behavioural Sciences unit were first introduced to us in the television series as they worked to understand patterns in murderous behavior by interviewing incarcerated serial killers in the style of Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs.

Before the first season had aired, the show was given a second season order; it will debut this year.

Mindhunter Season 2 Release Date

Netflix formally announced that Mindhunter season 2 will debut on August 16 earlier this summer. For anyone interested in getting a taste of what season 2 has to offer, the streaming service has since published a terrifying trailer:

In a 2017 interview with Billboard, Fincher disclosed that season 2 would focus on a legendary string of killings that occurred in Atlanta between 1979 and 1981 and resulted in the deaths of 28 children, teenagers, and adults (all of whom were African Americans). Wayne Williams, an Atlanta native, was tried for two of the murders and found guilty.

Damon Herriman has been cast as Charles Manson in addition to this. Surprisingly, he already portrays the notorious murderer in Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Ford’s techniques were questioned by Wendy, Bill, and their employer after season 1 because he grew more careless with their subjects. He gets given a bear hug by serial murderer Ed Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the film’s spectacular ending, and after breaking free, had a panic attack in the hallway after realizing how frightening the scenario had become.

The consequences of this will probably be addressed in the upcoming season, and (hopefully) we’ll see him approach the research with more pragmatism.

The good news is that the show is planned to have a “five-year arc,” which suggests there will be more beyond season 2. This was revealed by retired FBI agent John E. Douglas, who the show is partially based on, in a May interview with Vulture.

Will Mindhunter Return for a Third Season?

Ford and Tench, who were respectively played by Groff and Holt McCallany, are most likely to make a comeback in the third season. Without him, the squad wouldn’t be complete. Wendy Carr, a psychology professor, will be portrayed by Anna Torv. Joe Tuttle will be Gregg Smith’s special representative.
