The 50 best TV shows of 2017: No 6 Mindhunter

For a show about some of the 20th-century’s bloodiest murderers, Mindhunter doesn’t have that much blood. Or murder, for that matter.

Instead, Netflix’s best drama focuses on the birth of criminal profiling in late-70s America. Produced by Charlize Theron and David Fincher – who directed a handful of episodes (as did Asif Kapadia and Borgen writer Tobias Lindholm) – Mindhunter tells the story of two FBI officers awakening to the idea of using the minds of real-life monsters such as Jerry Brudos and Richard Speck to stop similar crimes happening in the future.

Fincher isn’t actually the showrunner of Mindhunter (although squint and you’re in Zodiac). That job belongs to British writer Joe Penhall, last seen adapting the Kinks’ songs for the stage in jukebox musical Sunny Afternoon. Penhall took agent John E Douglas’s 1995 book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite

Mindhunter season 2 plot: The Atlanta child murders

Warning: This article contains spoilers and speculation for Mindhunter season 2.

The first season of Netflix’s David Fincher-produced serial true-crime series Mindhunter challenged viewers to ask one resounding question: Are criminals born, or are they formed?

The ‘70s era series grapples with that question as FBI agent Ford Holden conducts the first criminal research of its kind on the minds of the most infamous serial killers, all while dealing with the bureaucratic concerns of the FBI, his increasingly rocky relationship, and his own insatiable ego. Without delving too deeply into the twisted timelines in season 1, let’s just say Ford discovered the hard way that there is no black and white answer. 

Lucky for fans of the series, Mindhunter will continue to enthrall in its exploration of the minds of criminals during its second season. Here’s everything we know about Mindhunter season 2 so far.

There is only one thing I enjoy watching more than serial killers and that is viewing these serial killers in a period milieu. Call me eccentric, but no other work of fiction fascinates me like the ones dealing with this particular genre. So when these homicidal maniacs were placed in the 1970s setting by a director who knows this cinematic category like a serial murderer knows his victims, for me it was Eid, Christmas and Diwali all rolled into one.
