At the moment, Netflix is keeping things as hush-hush as possible when it comes to Mindhunter season 2. They haven’t released all that much in the way of footage, and it’s been a significantly long period of time between when the first season premiered and where we are now.
What we’ve got for you now is a case of good news … and also some not great news. CarterMatt has the first teaser for you below and it shares what’s coming up next in season 2, but we’re not going to pretend as though it gives all that much away. It doesn’t. Instead, what we’ve got here is a reminder of the nature of this job, and some of the prominent killers and people who are at the center of this story. Mindhunter is as complicated a show as you’re going to come by in terms of understanding emotions and obsessions. Why would Holden Ford devote his life to the work in the way that he does? What is he looking to gain from everything when the dust settles? Maybe we’ll dive into his mind just as much as some of the criminals within the second season which is really the big teaser they left us with at the end of season one when he was visiting with Ed Kemper.
Given that these new episodes are premiering in just over two weeks, we gotta wonder why Netflix is waiting SO long to get some teasers out there? Do they legitimately believe that some sort of last-second marketing push here is going to be the way to this series’ salvation? We have to think that they want it to succeed, giving both the reviews for the first season and then also the presence of show executive producer David Fincher, who also steps in as a director for some episodes. This is the sort of person you want to push in your promotion since he is one of the best directors of all time.
So while it’s been a frustrating past several weeks if you are a Mindhunter fan, we’d anticipate some big changes coming in the near future. As a matter of fact, we’d advise you to keep your eyes peeled for some of them! We’ll have more news worthy of discussion here before you know it.
