David Fincher is set to return to the familiar subject matter of serial killers with his latest Netflix series, Mindhunters and it already looks incredible.
The first full trailer for the new show sees Fincher, who is directing the show, back on familiar territory, having previously covered the topic both Zodiac and Se7en.
It follows the story of two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff & Holt McCallany) who set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answers to the question: How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?
Focusing on the topic of serial killers and profiling, the show looks dark, creepy and very absorbing.
Produced by Charlize Theron along with familiar Fincher cohorts Joshua Donen and Cean Chaffin, who were both involved in Gone Girl, the series stars Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm and Andrew Douglas as FBI agents under pressure to find answers.
Due to arrive on Netflix this October 13, it’s already shaping up to be the most eagerly anticipated new show on the streaming service, following on from the critically lauded Ozark, starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney.
It’s Fincher’s second major project with Netflix, following on from the critically-acclaimed House of Cards, which is fast approaching its definitive conclusion.
With the Kevin Spacey-led political drama five seasons in, Mindhunter could be the perfect replacement for anyone suffering withdrawal symptoms while the next installment is being put together.
The perfect fusion of real-life whodunits like Making Murder with thrillers like Se7en, this already looks unmissable.
Loaded staff writer Jack Beresford has produced content for Lad Bible, Axonn Media and a variety of online sports and news media outlets.
