The first season of crime drama Mindhunter had the world and it's mother absolutely hooked, and season two is on the horizon.

Good news for all the superfans: The release date has been confirmed by executive-producers David Fincher and Charlize Theron, and it's SO soon. 

Theron let slip to radio host Howard Stern back in May that we'll be getting the new series in August of this year, saying; 

"Season 2 is coming out in August," she said. "Yeah, can't wait. Deep, dark… it's wonderful." Was she meant to tell us that? Most likely no, but Charlize does what Charlize wants.

David Fincher later added on KCRW's The Treatment podcast, that Mindhunter season two will air on Netflix on August 16 of this year. That's only 35 days, people.

The intense show is set in the 1970s, and follows FBI agent Holden Ford and colleague Bill Tench as they interview some of the most notorious serial killers of all time.

Why? Basically to understand why they turn into psychopaths, so they can prevent future murders through the magic of psychology. Holden is actually based on real-life FBI agent John E Douglas.

Season two will definitely feature Charles Manson, and the unnamed killer that pops up throughout season one will reappear. He's based on the 'BTK Killer' Dennis Rader, allegedly.

John E Douglas also spoke to John Wayne Gacy, 'Son of Sam' David Berkowitz and Charles Manson while he was an FBI agent, so these chaps will probably show up to creep us out.

Stars from season one  Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany are set to return as Holden and Bill, and Hannah Gross will hopefully return too. Netflix are keeping quiet about who will return from the cast…

Justified actor Damon Herriman has been cast as Manson in the next series, Collider have reported. Weirdly, he's also confirmed to play Manson in Quentin Tarantino's film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. 

Manson was the infamous leader of a dangerous cult who were brainwashed, and murdered pregnant actress Sharon Tate. The followers will appear in season two of the show, which should be fascinating.

Tex Watson led the group of Manson followers who murdered Sharon, which include; Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, Abigail Folger, Gary Hinman, Leno & Rosemary La Biance, Steven Parent, and Donald Shea.

One INSANE theory suggests that Jonathan Groff's character Holden is actually a sociopath, which would blow our minds. Groff has disproved this theory though, which is slightly devastating.

"Everyone has said to me after they watch the show that they thought the character was a sociopath," he told Vulture. "And I had no idea! No idea… So many of my friends texted me, saying, 'OK, so when are you gonna start killing people?'

"I think the thing that they are aligning with… that I think is very similar, that we start to see more and more in our characters is this characteristic of narcissism and becoming self-obsessed."

Bring on August 16, we say.

If you recently found yourself utterly enthralled by Netflix series Mindhunter, you probably have one or two questions about one particular element of the crime-based show.

And that element involves psychology professor Wendy Carr, a stray cat and a tin of tuna. We're right, aren't we?

While the series featured a number of utterly disturbing exchanges between Agent Ford, Agent Tench and multiple high-profile serial killers, there's no doubt that viewers were also left thoroughly unsettled by scenes which played out in Professor Carr's laundry room.

While it seemed the scenes between the psychology professor and her feline visitor would ultimately reach a crescendo, the first series came to an end without any resolution or explanation for the time dedicated to the laundry room.

Commenting on this apparent loose end, Anna Torv, who plays Wendy Carr, recently told Esquire: "I think it's open to interpretation."

"At first I thought, 'Okay, is this representing all the faceless people that get taken by these killers every day?" she questioned.

"This little thing [the stray cat] that no-one cares about – I mean, we find out about people that have been murdered because they have families who tell the police, but there are homeless people and prostitutes and street kids that nobody is missing, and serial killers target."

However, it seems Anna isn't entirely convinced by the symbolic explanation and invites viewers to consider the practical implications of the burgeoning storyline.

"Is there a serial killer in Wendy's building who's slowly starting out, and testing his bloodlust on feral kittens?" the actress wondered. "I think there are a lot of ways it could go."

Sounds like we'll have to stay tuned in that case…


It may have only made its debut on Friday, but the latest offering from Netflix has already set Twitter ablaze.

Directed by David Fincher, the man who brought us Seven, Gone Girl and House of Cards, Mindhunter has captured the imaginations of millions so far.

With just ten episodes in the first season, it seems Twitter users have spent the entire weekend bingeing on the American crime drama which focuses on two FBI Agents and their determination to get inside the minds of the country's most deranged murderers.

While we're already absolutely obsessed here at SHEmazing HQ, don't take our words for it, just have a look at what Twitter has to say on the matter instead.

And finally, the tweet which sums up this writer's opinion of it…




If you're fascinated by serial killers and feel there's a criminologist in you only dying to get out, then chances are you're constantly on the hunt for documentaries and TV shows which delve into the darkest recesses of the human mind.

And that's where this new series comes in.

Ladies, David Fincher has returned to Netflix with MINDHUNTER, a rigorous study of the damaged psyches of serial killers and the innovative FBI Agents who attempt to understand and catch them.

So, what can you expect from the man who brought us Seven, Gone Girl and House of Cards?

MINDHUNTER follows ambitious FBI agent Holden Ford, played by Jonathan Groff, as he struggles to comprehend incarcerated killers, so that he might use this knowledge to catch others.

He’s teamed with experienced agent Bill Tench, played by Holt McCallany, in the Behavioural Science Unit and will work with his sometimes reluctant partner to find new methods of investigation.

Together they will meet some of America’s gravest killers – and face the cynicism and scorn of the tradition-bound hierarchy of the 1970s’ Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Ford will risk empathizing with ‘evil’ in order to save lives. But, as Tench says, when arguing the case for their work: “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

All 10 episodes of MINDHUNTER became available to Netflix members worldwide as of yesterday, so if you didn't spend last night with your eyes glued to it, you know what to do tonight.
