Playlist is reporting some exciting details about David Fincher’s stellar Netflix series Mindhunter and what is in store for season two.
It has been confirmed that the mastermind of the production, David Fincher, will return to direct both the premiere and the finale of season two. Fincher will be joined by Carl Franklin (Devil In A Blue Dress, One False Move, HBO’s Vinyl and The Leftovers) who will direct four of the episodes with Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James, Killing Me Softly) rounding out the trio and directing two of the episodes as well.
It is also reported that “Fincher is currently in Pittsburgh doing prep on season two which starts at the end of the month” for an early 2019 release. The report also suggests that this may delay the start of the follow-up to World War Z (Fincher signed on to direct the sequel last April), but it appears as if the production is only in the scripting phase at the moment.
Season two “…will focus on the infamous Atlanta child murders of the late 1970’s and early 80’s, which featured the relatively uncommon case of an African-American serial killer —in real life, Wayne Williams, who was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment for killing two adult men, but never convicted of the deaths of twenty three murders of young children.”
In Twitter-verse news, director/producer Judd Apatow questioned the choice of topic saying “Is anyone else sick of every show during this peak tv era being about murdering kids and women?” The director was quickly enlightened by fans of Mindhunter (and fans of Apatow himself it would seem, although those are becoming harder to find these days…) and the noted “town crier” quickly moved on to saving the known universe one tweet at a time.
