‘Mindhunter’ renewed for season 2: ‘We need to talk to more subjects’

“I don’t think they’ve officially green-lit a second season,” said “Mindhunter” star Jonathan Groff when we chatted with him recently, and he didn’t want to jinx it. “Until I’m taking a shit in my trailer while we’re shooting I’m really not going to believe that this job is happening — that’s just my MO.” Well he can breathe a sigh of relief because the renewal became official when “Mindhunter” announced it on November 30 in an Instagram post. Scroll down to see that announcement as well as our video interview with Groff.

“We need to talk to more subjects. ‘Mindhunter‘ season 2 is coming,’ says the announcement, referencing the show’s central premise. The Netflix drama stars Groff as FBI Agent Holden Ford, who studies the criminal mind by interviewing real-life imprisoned serial killers including Ed Kemper (played by Cameron Britton) and Jerry Brudos (played by

We’re not done hunting minds yet, y’all. A month and a half after producer David Fincher’s edge-of-your-seat serial killer thriller Mindhunter premiered, Netflix has announced that a second season is officially on the way. Fincher has actually already let some details about the upcoming season slip, and it sounds like fans of the show have a lot to look forward to. So when will Mindhunter Season 2 premiere, and what is going to happen next with the messed-up moral gray area that is Holden Ford? Let’s get into everything we know about the new season right now.

This renewal should come as no surprise to fans of Mindhunter — the crime drama landed on Netflix in October to rave reviews (its first season holds an impressive 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and the season finale left viewers with a bunch of pressing, unanswered questions. Oh,

‘Mindhunter’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix | Hollywood Reporter

Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) will continue their investigations into the minds of serial killers for a second season of Mindhunter.

Netflix accompanied Thursday’s renewal news with a social media teaser with the tagline: “We need to talk to more subjects.” The series’ Instagram account also announced the news with some photographs by filmmaker and executive producer David Fincher.

The critically acclaimed 1977-set drama follows Ford and Tench, agents in the FBI serial crime unit, along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), as they interview and study a string of well-known violent offenders in an attempt to find answers, ultimately classifying the “serial killer” term. Real-life murderers portrayed on the first season included the BTK Killer, Richard Speck, Jerry Brudos and Edmund Kemper (aka the Co-Ed Killer), who is played by standout Cameron Britton.

The Ed Kemper Actor From ‘Mindhunter’ Looks A Lot Less Terrifying In Real Life

For everyone who watched Netflix’s Mindhunter, the serial killer from the show’s second episode likely stuck out to you. The episode introduced Edmund Kemper, the serial killer based on a real-life criminal known as “Big Ed” or the “co-ed killer.” What makes this all even more terrifying is that the speech Kemper gave in the episode was basically word-for-word what the real Ed Kemper said in interviews. However, the actor behind that performance, Cameron Britton, looks so different from his Mindhunter role in real life. Like, really, really different. Thankfully.

You see, the actor resembles a young Seth Rogan when he’s not busy portraying creepy AF serial-killers. This speaks volumes about both Britton’s acting chops and Mindhunter’s hair and makeup department. In fact, he looks so drastically different from the character he played in Netflix’s true-crime drama that you probably wouldn’t

Mindhunter – true crime binge TV

Mindhunter is a gritty 10 part Netflix crime drama set in 1977, based on John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker’s book of the same name. Listing Charlize Theron and David Fincher among its producers, the show takes tips from both stars’ previous work, most notably the camera work and atmosphere, which were perfect in Fincher’s Zodiac. Jonathan Groff plays Holden Ford, an FBI agent who is motivated to understand why it is that criminals act the way they do, and the motivations of serial killers in particular. This leads to Ford joining up with the behavioural sciences solo unit at the FBI, run by Bill Tench (Holt McCallany). Agents Ford and Tench want to expand the unit from being just “profiling road school” to a scientific inquiry of what causes these random killings. There is constant internal scrutiny from the FBI about the worth of this unit from their

How Netflix’s Serial Killer Drama ‘Mindhunter’ Draws From Real Life

“And that’s exactly what these agents were able to do. They would go in, look at a scene, and come up with the basic categories,” Burgess recalled. “They would have their whole team there, and sometimes people would disagree, which was great! Because by disagreeing, they could say, ‘Well, I see this.’ Or, ‘I don’t see that. How do you see that?’”
