Netflix’s MINDHUNTER Renewed for Second Season

Mindhunter has just been renewed for a second season at Netflix.

The Netflix official Twitter account confirmed that the series would be receiving a second course on Thursday. The news was received warmly, though many suspected this would be the case.

Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Hannah Gross, Cameron Britton, and Anna Torv all star in the drama, the first season of which featured a story inspired by serial killer Ed Kemper. Mindhunter is set in the 1970s, where two FBI agents work together to interview serial killers in a prison to gain insight into the cases they are currently working. The series is a mostly-true telling of the early days of criminal profiling and forensic psychology, and is less evocative of Silence of the Lambs than it might sound.

The series debuted to explosive critical acclaim in October, and it currently holds a 96 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (Although it is important to note that Rotten Tomatoes scores can be a little strange and inaccurate when it comes to television series.) Although Netflix does not release viewer data, this news confirms that the show has done quite well for itself in terms of viewership, as well.
