Mindhunter Season 2 was one of the most compelling TV shows I’ve watched all year, probably along with HBO’s Watchmen.
David Fincher was able to create a TV show which was both absorbing and rather terrifying, but not in a usual way.
Mindhunter Seasons 1 and 2 have a very morbid tone about them as the show’s FBI agents, Holden Ford (played by Jonathan Groff) and Bill Trench (Holt McCallany), along with former psychology professor Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) try to discover what makes serial killers tick.
However, they also have to use their findings in active investigations, and that’s the part of the show that I find really interesting: discovering how these FBI agents make their findings and then adopt them in active cases.
It’s fascinating to see how other FBI agents and the US’ police force were very much against this new form of investigation, which was way over most people’s heads.
Ford and Trench are really going deep into the minds of these killers, hence the title Mindhunter.
Sounds like we’re going to have to wait a while for Mindhunter Season 3
Anyway, Mindhunter Season 3 might not be with us for quite a while, as it was revealed in a recent article in The Hollywood Reporter that the show won’t start filming until David Fincher has finished making his next film.
There was also a two-year wait between Mindhunter Season 1 and 2, so it’s not really surprising that we’re going to have to wait a little while longer to watch Season 3.
Hopefully, Netflix will agree to renew the show regardless. The streaming giants have become very used to cancelling shows before their time.
I just have my fingers crossed that they won’t do this with Mindhunter because it genuinely is one of their more fascinating programmes.
