New Mindhunter season 2 photos released

Following last week’s reveal of the season 2 premiere date, Netflix has debuted a ton of new photos from Mindhunter season 2. Check them out in the gallery below and look for the series to return on August 16 on Netflix.

Previously, executive producer and director David Fincher spoke at length about the new season on the KCRW podcast The Treatment, saying:

“You could probably do three seasons on The Atlanta Child Murders if you really wanted to turn over every rock. It’s a huge and sweeping and tragic story. We couldn’t do it justice in the background of our nine hours. We had to choose to dramatize ‘These are the last guys in’ and here are the reasons for that, and here they are trying to help out something that has its own momentum and has its own politics and certain areas have become entrenched. It’s a divided battlefield, and they’re coming in to try and throw this federal umbrella under everything to make everybody feel okay about sharing information and it’s really, really tricky.”
