Last year’s Mindhunter was a thrilling and stylish look into the life of serial killers and the people who hunt them. David Fincher’s involvement was large part of that, giving each monologue and each scene appropriate weight through his steady, omnipotent camerawork.
Well, you don’t have to worry about the next season. According to a report by The Playlist, Fincher will return to direct the premiere, the finale, and a handful of episodes in between for the next season of Mindhunter.
Joining Fincher will be the likes of Andrew Dominik, director of films like Killing them Softly and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and Carl Franklin, best known for his film Devil in a Blue Dress.
Fincher, along with Charlize Theron, is set once again to executive produce the show that Joe Penhall created. The series is based on the true-crime novel of the same name, written by former FBI agents John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
But, what will Season 2 have in store? Well, all our main actors from Season 1 will return, including Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv in their respective roles. The setting has changed too; from the Midwest to Atlanta during the late 70s and early 80s during the horrific child murders that took place in that time period.
All other information has been kept pretty tight lipped, but it’s safe to say that Season 2 is shaping up well for it’s 2019 release.
