In an interview with The Treatment David Fincher announced that the new season will release on the 16th August.
Damn. That's a really unfortunate timing, as my girlfriend will be away for nine days starting from 16.8. It means I'll have to try to avoid spoilers from those who binge-watch it through immediately, and can't withhold from ruining it for others by posting details about it online. I wish it (and everything else) would be released at episode per week pace. I loved how it went like that with Game of Thrones, Star Trek: Discovery, and Big Little Lies.

Damn, Dark Crystal Age of Resistance and Mindhunter in the same month? Netflix really wants me to feel bad for mooching off my parents' account don't they.

It feels like ages between Mindhunter S1 and S2. But when I look at Wikipedia it's actually only about a month longer than the break between Stranger Things S2 and S3, which didn't feel all that long. Huh.

About time. Hope this means we get a trailer soon. Holt also recorded a podcast for NetWorkWise recently and made a comment that he was "looking forward to [Mindhunter] seasons 3, 4 & 5."

Did they really need 8 months of post production on the show? That seems like such a long time for something with little to no CG.

From what I have heard the Atlanta Child Murders will be in season two. I wonder if the show will glorify the FBI or show the racism that the FBI exhibited.

According to Fincher, “Mindhunter” Season 2 will involve behavioral analysis as it makes its way to the front lines of police work. The Atlanta Child Murders, a series of killings that took place between 1979 and 1981 and left 28 African-American children, teenagers, and adults dead, is the driving narrative in the new season.
The newness of this investigative work confined it to the literal basement, but in “Mindhunter” Season 2 the interest in serial killers has exploded onto a national scale. What was once stuck in the basement is now driving everyday conversations, which naturally has an effect on the FBI agents.

Fincher is so fucking anal about this stuff.

I love it even tho behind the scenes it must drive people bonkers. Can't wait for Season 2.

I've always wondered how involved Fincher is in these shows compared to his movies. I know he directed 4 episodes last season and is Exec Producing, but I was under the impression that Exec Producing wasn't as involved in a production. The CGI video posted above is just like his movie ones, and it does seem like the whole thing feels like his baby, but who knows.

It depends on the individual executive producer, he is involved in the development and writing (Sorkin described him as a script editor on The Social Network).

I believe he formed the style guide for the other directors to use. Practical lighting, little to no handheld camera no steady cam etc.

So excited by this. My fiance was so not into watching it, but we both got hooked after episode 1 and binged the whole thing.

Collider wrote an article about this : http://collider.com/mindhunter-david-fincher-showrunner/

In essence, he took over when the show moved from HBO to Netflix, and decided to run the Writer's room from that point on (as the original writer couldn't)

With a director like Fincher he is often time infusing his people into the whole production. For eample:


Tyler Nelson edited 4 of the episodes that Fincher did not direct but was on the editorial crew for many of Fincher's previous films.

and Erik Messerschmidt who DPd a lot of season 1 was a Fincher veteran gaffer from previous films.


It looks like he uses TV series as a way to promote up people who have worked with him on previous films. So they are veterans of his workflow and style and even when he is not directing you are going to feel Fincher's hands on the work because of this.

I'd just like to echo some commendment and excitement for the show. I find S1 sort of terrific. I don't believe it's really underrated or overrated... but it may be a little underappreciated and misunderstood.

I hope it stays consistent / doesn't go the way of HoC.
