Netflix released a first look trailer for “Mindhunter,” which is set to return for a second season in August. The series, from David Fincher, is coming back with new episodes on August 16th, and the new season focuses on the Atlanta child murders that occurred between 1979 and 1981. The trailer offers a quick teaser of the new case, including a shot of Charles Manson. The video features Manson (Damon Herriman) and FBI agents Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff).
The first season of the show featured Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, and Cameron Britton, who portrayed serial killer Ed Kemper on the series. Joe Penhall (The Road) created the series, with Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network, Zodiac), Joshua Donen (Gone Girl, The Quick and the Dead) Charlize Theron (Girlboss, Hatfields & McCoys) and Cean Chaffin (Gone Girl, Fight Club) serving as executive producers.
Netflix teased the trailer on social media, telling followers, “History. Pattern. Profile. Mindhunter Season 2. All episodes. August 16.”
If you’re new to the series there’s still plenty of time to binge the first season, which is one of the highest-rated dramas on the platform. The story follows two FBI agents from the Behavioral Science Unit — Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) — as they travel across America to interview psychopaths and serial killers in an attempt to understand their mindset.
This is the first official trailer that Netflix released for the new season. If you’re all caught up, be sure to set a reminder to catch the new episodes on August 16th.
Fincher also brought the adult animated series “Love, Death + Robots,” co-created by Fincher and Deadpool director Tim Miller, to Netflix. Fincher also directed Netflix’s “Mank,” a biopic about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, who was played by Gary Oldman. The movie is based on a script written by Fincher’s late father, who died in 2003. “Mank” is Fincher’s first feature film since 2014’s hit thriller “Gone Girl.”
