If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve been super excited about Mindhunter Season 2. I loved the first season, have watched it twice already, and couldn’t wait to see where the series went next.
Mindhunter Season 2 is nine episodes long and covered the real-life events of 1979 to 1981. Focusing particularly on the Atlanta Child Murders the series also continued conducting interviews with serial killers. Season one began with events that took place in 1977.

Mindhunter Season 2 Review Conclusion
I will be watching it again – and I want more! There was a point about halfway through where I began to grow concerned that they weren’t going to have enough episodes to catch the person responsible for the missing boys in Atlanta. Using what they had learnt from their interviews in the previous season wasn’t straight forward and with a new man at the helm, things began to get somewhat political. Despite being fairly slow-paced it’s not boring, engrossing from beginning to end and I really do want more…
They’re hoping for five seasons, with the shows bible outlining future seasons. I’m hoping they get the five seasons of this highly anticipated show -I keep telling everyone who shows even the slightest possible interest to give it a watch, they’ll stop inviting me places soon.
And the only place you can watch it is Netflix, so grab yourself a free month on the 15th of August if you don’t already have the streaming service.
