David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” gets its release date on Netflix

Netflix has set the official premiere for the series “MINDHUNTER“, its second partnership with David Fincher and the director’s first finished project since the 2014’s devilishly brilliant “Gone Girl”. All 10 episodes of its first season will be available to stream on a very pertinent date: Friday, October 13th.

“Mindhunter” is based on the already influential book “Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit” written by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, founder of the FBI’s Criminal Profiling Program. It was first optioned and developed as a series for HBO by Charlize Theron, who teamed up with Fincher. They both executive produce the series written by the British playwright and screenwriter Joe Penhall.

Fincher has directed episodes 1.1, 1.2 and 1.10. Andrew Douglas, Asif Kapadia and Tobias Lindholm, the other seven.

Set in 1979, it follows two FBI agents, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany (“Alien 3”, “Fight Club”), who interview convicted serial killers and other violent sex offenders in an effort to help them solve current murder cases. Anna Torv plays a psychologist.

Netflix has already manifested its confidence in the potential of the show by picking it up for a second season.

Here’s the teaser trailer released in March:
