Netflix Releases First Teaser Trailer For ‘Mindhunter’ Season 2
Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for ‘Mindhunter‘ Season 2, which premieres Friday, 16th August 2019.
Created by Joe Penhall (‘The Road’), the series stars Jonathan Groff (‘Glee’, ‘Frozen’, ‘Looking’) & Holt McCallany (‘Blue Bloods’, ‘CSI: Miami’, ‘Heroes’) as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench who set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answer to the question “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”. As members of the FBI’s Behavioural Sciences Unit, they start to interview serial killers in an effort to help solve crimes. Helping Ford and Tench is Wendy Carr, played by Anna Torv (‘Fringe’), a psychology professor who joins the pair at the Behavioural Sciences Unit to help unravel the minds of the serial killers.
In Season 2, Ford and Tench probe further into the psyches of those who have done the unthinkable. Set from 1979-1981, two years after the 1st season, one focus for the FBI agents will be the infamous “Atlanta child murders”. Despite the name, this was the work of a serial killer who, not only murdered 28 children, but also adolescents and adults, over a 2-year period. This season also includes Charles Manson (Damon Herriman – ‘Justified’) and “Son of Sam/.44 Caliber Killer” David Berkowitz.
The series also stars Cotter Smith (‘The Post’, ‘The Americans’) as Shepard, the unit chief who oversees the trio, and Hannah Gross (‘Unless’) who plays Debbie, Ford’s girlfriend. Additionally, Cameron Britton (‘The Umbrella Academy’) returns to continue his phenomenal, breakout, performance as serial killer Ed Kemper, who Ford & Tench interview, and becomes as fascinated with them as they are with him.
The series is directed by David Fincher (‘Gone Girl’, ‘Zodiac’) as well as Andrew Dominik (‘Killing Them Softly’, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’) and Carl Franklin (‘The Leftovers’, ‘House of Cards’). Fincher, Joshua Donen (‘Gone Girl’, ‘The Quick and the Dead’), Charlize Theron (‘Girlboss’, ‘Hatfields & McCoys’) and Cean Chaffin (‘Gone Girl’, ‘Fight Club’) executive produce along with Courtenay Miles and Beth Kono.
‘Mindhunter‘ Season 2 premieres Friday, 16th August 2019 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
