Mindhunter Netflix

I have yet to watch Netflix’s new thriller series Mindhunter, but /Film’s own Chris Evangelista wrote a rave review of the first season, which debuted a few days ago. In his conclusion, he noted that the show’s true crime roots and its late ’70s setting leave the door open for a number of possibilities for future seasons. And now we know where the second season is heading.

Mindhunter season 2 will examine a string of 28 murders (mostly children and adolescents) that rocked Atlanta, Georgia between 1979 and 1981. While the show itself is heavily fictionalized, it looks like real-world crimes will continue to inspire its storytelling and characters for the foreseeable future.

Mindhunter review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Netflix’s new serial killer drama Mindhunter.)

“The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.” -William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

The term “serial killer” is a relatively new invention. Yes, people have committed multiple murderers throughout history, but no one began to really classify, or even begin to try to understand, these types of violent crimes until the the 1970s. You may not be familiar with the name John Douglas, but I guarantee you are familiar with his work. From Douglas sprang the very concept of criminal profiling. His work has served as the inspiration for a steady stream of movies and TV shows. The character of FBI agent Jack Crawford, played most prominently by Scott Glenn in The Silence of the Lambs and Laurence Fishburne on the TV series Hannibal, was based directly on Douglas.

Now, the early days of Douglas’ career are given the full dramatization treatment with Mindhunter, a new Netflix series created by playwright Joe Penhall, with David Fincher and Charlize Theron both serving as executive producers. With Mindhunter, Netflix has produced their best show in recent memory, and arguably one of the best shows in their ever-growing catalogue.
