David Fincher Reveals Storyline For Mindhunter Season 2

OMG October 23, 2017 By Hugo

If you haven't seen David Fincher's terrific new Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, we strongly suggest you check it out as it's one of the most compelling shows of the year and I'd be lying if I told you I hadn't already binged the first ten episodes in little under two days. 

Without giving away any spoilers, the series is based on a true crime book by two former special agents working in the early days of criminal psychology as they studied the traits and thinking patterns of some of America's most notorious serial killers by interviewing them in person.

If that isn't terrifying enough, we discover the gruesome details of the murders, with the eerie monotones of their voices enough to keep you awake long after you've finished watching the series. 

And as the A-list director all but confirmed, it appears the hair-raising series will return for a second series.

Speaking to Billboard, Fincher said, "Next year, we're looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we'll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice. The music will evolve."

The murders Fincher mentioned occurred between the years 1979 and 1981, where at least 29 African-American adults and children were slaughtered. However, Wayne Williams, the person convicted of those crimes, has always maintained his innocence and claimed his conviction was part of an elaborate cover-up by police to protect the real perpetrators- the Ku Klux Klan.

At the time of writing, Mindhunter has a 96% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while countless media outlets have awarded it four and five-star reviews.

What are your thoughts on Netflix's latest hit series? Does it live up to the hype? Or is it just another in a long line of overrated crime dramas.
