David Fincher-Produced "Mindhunter" Renewed for Second Season on Netflix

A Korean Odyssey, a new series from Studio Dragon, the outfit behind Goblin and Signal, will roll out on Netflix globally. Netflix also needs some good fictionalized crime series - many of their shows don't take on this subject matter in such a way.

It takes place in the last 1970s and follows two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents as they start using psychology to get to the bottom of motives for horrific crimes. Based on early plaudits, Britton could be in next year's Emmy conversations as could the show itself. The producers include Oscar-nominated director David Fincher ("The Social Network", "Fight Club" and "Se7en") and Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron (who won for another serial killer movie, "Monster").

"Hopefully we'll have five seasons", McCallany remarked to Esquire. Along with psychologist Wendy Carr (played by Anna Torv), they are tasked with interviewing imprisoned serial killers in order to understand how they think - so that they can then use that knowledge to try to solve current and future cases.

Given the timing of the Mindhunter season 2 renewal, coupled with the rumors about the next production cycle, odds are that new episodes are going to premiere at some point in 2018.

The Atlanta child murders were a series of killings of African-Americans, mostly kids between the ages of 7 and 14, over the course of 1979 to 1981.

Fans of serial killer dramas should be excited to know that Mindhunter Season 2 is happening.
