Get your recorder ready - Mindhunter will return.

A second season of Mindhunter has officially been ordered by Netflix. 

The crime drama has been a hit for Netflix, with the series due to return to the streaming service at some point in the future.

Mindhunter is based on the book of the same name by FBI profiler John Douglas, which charts his journey into criminal psychology in the 1970s.

The show features Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they interview some of America’s most notorious serial killers in a bid to understand more about their psychology and prevent similar crimes in the future. 

Jonathan Groff rose to fame with musical series Glee and still appears in stage musicals, whereas Holt McCallany has appeared in previous Fincher projects Fight Club and Alien 3.

The series is set in the ‘70s and has a soundtrack and style to match it, with Fincher’s visual style present throughout the season, even in episodes that the director didn’t personally helm. 

Whilst there has been no official release date for the second season, the fast turnaround of Netflix series suggests we may see it in late 2018 or even early 2019.

Fincher has previously said he wants up to five seasons of Mindhunter, with the first season teasing a real-world killer who wasn’t caught until the 2000s, meaning that the show could expand throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. 

You can catch up on the first season of Mindhunter on Netflix right now.
