Given the critical reaction and general buzz around Netflix series Mindhunter, created by Joe Penhall and shepherded by one David Fincher, it's perhaps not surprising that the streaming service has announced that a second season of the show is on the way.

Mindhunter, which drew its inspiration from John Douglas and Mark Olshaker's 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, follows an FBI team tracking some of world's most notorious serial killers and rapists. It's all based on Douglas' very real career with the bureau. Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv star, and Fincher has already opened up to US radio show The Frame about a direction for the next season: "Next year we’re looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we’ll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice. The music will evolve. It’s intended to support what’s happening with the show and for the show to evolve radically between seasons."

Whether that evolution means big cast changes has yet to be revealed, but we'd expect the leads to stay around for now. There's no official date yet, but given Netflix's usual procedure, you have to figure it'll be sometime later in 2018.
