Netflix has launched a new promotional campaign for Mindhunter Season 2! Check out the new Mindhunter interactive website at whatswrongwithcomplicated.tv for new promotional stills and motion imagery by Miles Crist! The Season 2 teaser trailer has also just been released as part of the new marketing campaign!
Netflix is now offering an interactive first look at Mindhunter Season 2 — with a catch.
Members of the press have been given access to an interactive gallery of over 200 photos. Each member of the press can access 8 photos from the gallery, which is displayed as a compilation of slides called The Lightbox. Exploration of these photos unlocks a teaser trailer for Season 2, which has yet to be publicly released. Each press outlet is hosting a different set of first look photos, creating a sort of scavenger hunt for those looking to get a glimpse into the new season.
Netflix has asked us to refrain from sharing the entire set of Season 2 photos, but don’t miss these sites for new exclusive photos of Anna Torv as Dr. Wendy Carr:
Netflix’s Mindhunter will resume… mindhunting?… this August, nearly two years after Season 1 dropped.
During a podcast with The Treatment‘s Elvis Mitchell, Mindhunter executive producer/director David Fincher announced that Season 2 — which will span just eight episodes, two fewer than the freshman run — will premiere on Friday, August 16.
Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany will return as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench, while Anna Torv will reprise her role as Carrie Coon psychology professor Wendy Carr.
Fincher has said that Season 2 will be set during the time of the Atlanta child murders of 1979-81, during which African-American serial killer Wayne Williams was tried, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for killing two adult males. Williams, however, was never tried for any of the child murders, 23 of which he was suspected of being involved with.
Other serial killers to be featured in Season 2 include Charles Manson (played by Justified‘s Damon Herriman) and David Berkowitz aka “Son of Sam.”
Fincher will reportedly direct the Season 2 premiere and finale, with Andrew Dominik and Carl Franklin helming the rest.
