MINDHUNTER, A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES
By Netflix Media Center
David Fincher returns to Netflix with MINDHUNTER, a rigorous study of the damaged psyches of serial killers and the innovative FBI Agents who attempt to understand and catch them.
Fincher made his Netflix debut with the Emmy ®- and Golden Globe ® -winning political drama House of Cards and his return to long-form storytelling is highly anticipated.
MINDHUNTER follows ambitious FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) as he struggles to comprehend incarcerated killers, so that he might use this knowledge to catch others.
He’s teamed with experienced agent Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) in the Behavioral Science Unit and will work with his sometimes reluctant partner to find new methods of investigation.
Together they will meet some of America’s gravest killers – and face the cynicism and scorn of the tradition-bound hierarchy of the 1970s’ Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Ford will risk empathizing with ‘evil’ in order to save lives. But, as Tench says, when arguing the case for their work: “How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”
Written by Joe Penhall (The Road) and Jennifer Haley (Hemlock Grove), MINDHUNTER was inspired by the memoir of FBI veteran John R Douglas, Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit (written with Mark Olshaker).
All 10 episodes of MINDHUNTER will become available to Netflix members worldwide on Friday, October 13, 2017.

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:
