Mindhunter Season 2 Officially Ordered By Netflix

Netlix has officially renewed its critically acclaimed series Mindhunter for a second season. Based on real-life FBI Agent John Douglas, the hour-long crime thriller Mindhunter has delved into the famed criminal profiler’s experiences like no other series or film has done before.

A criminal psychologist who concentrated on getting into the minds of serial killers in an effort to understand what was behind their murderous ways, Douglas was first used as the inspiration for the FBI Agent Jack Crawford character in Thomas Harris’ best-selling novels Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs. As a result, Crawford became a key character in all of the adaptations of Harris’ novels, from the film Manhunter (played by Dennis Farina), The Silence of The Lambs (Scott Glenn), and Red Dragon (Harvey Keitel) to the TV series Hannibal (Laurence Fishburne). Now, Douglas’ work is being spotlighted once again, this time in the guise of FBI Agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) in
