Netflix’s New Show ‘Mindhunter’ Is Shaping Up To Be The Streaming Giant’s Next Hit



Those Netflix guys sure know what they’re doing, huh? Sure, they may be $20 billion in debt, but you gotta spend money to make money, am I right?

Created by David Fincher, who is also quite good at what he does, Mindhunter will be set in 1979 and will revolve around two FBI agents, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, who interview imprisoned serial killers to try to solve ongoing cases.

Jonathan Groff stars as Holden Ford, a special agent in the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, alongside Holt McCallany, who stars as Bill Tench, another special agent in the FBI’s BSU. The series also stars Anna Torv as Wendy, a psychologist, and Cotter Smith as Shepard, unit chief of the FBI National Training Academy.

It’s got a very Gone Girl meets Seven vibe, which should be an automatic selling point for anyone who enjoys the murder (sorry IDK what else to call it?) genre.

Mindhunter premieres on Netflix on October 13, just two weeks before Stranger Things 2, so clear your binge calendar folks.
