The BSU Is Expanding In Mindhunter Season 2 Trailer
Fans have been waiting two years for the acclaimed crime thriller Mindhunter to return to Netflix for the next chapter in the early days of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit and the streaming service has released the full trailer for the new season showing the crime unit getting an expansion thanks to new leadership and being given a new case to solve, which can be viewed in the player below (Via SlashFilm).
In Mindhunter, two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answers. In addition to the Atlanta Child Murders — which took place between 1979 and 1981 — the new season will likely cover Son of Sam and the reappearance of the BTK Killer.
Along with Groff and McCallany, the series features Anna Torv (Fringe, Heavenly Sword, The Daughter) and Hannah Gross (Unless, I Used to Be Darker, Take What You Can Carry). The series is directed by David Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network, Zodiac), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?). Season 2 will feature Damon Herriman (Justified, Quarry) playing Charles Manson, a role he also filled for Once Upon A Time… in Hollywood.
Joe Penhall (The Road) created the series. Fincher, Joshua Donen (Gone Girl, The Quick and the Dead), Charlize Theron (Girlboss, Hatfields & McCoys) and Cean Chaffin (Gone Girl, Fight Club) are executive producers. The first season of Mindhunter has been Certified Fresh with a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and was lauded by critics for its reinvention of the crime procedural, when it premiered in October 2017.
Mindhunter season 2 premieres on Netflix August 16.
