Netflix Confirms Start Date For 'Mindhunter' Season Two

Netflix just confirmed a start date for the highly anticipated second season of Mindhunter, and there's not long to wait at all.

The streaming giant revealed the release date on social media on Friday afternoon, and fans of the gritty crime series can expect to be able to binge-watch from Friday, 16th August. Mark your calendars as that's a little over one month to go!

"NEWS: Mindunter S2 is launching August 16 (there wasn't really a "funny", marketing-friendly way to announce that so there you go)," Netflix tweeted.

It's fair to say that fans were ecstatic by the confirmation of an air date from Netflix.

"If it's as good as S1 then we are in for a real treat," declared one on Twitter, while another viewer excitedly exclaimed: "This is fantastic news. I [heart] Season 1. Roll on August 16th."

The news was also confirmed by executive producer David Fincher, while appearing on today's KCRW's The Treatment podcast.

Mindhunter fans were promised a second season of the Netflix original way back in November 2017 so they've paid their dues with patience.

The new episodes landing next months are expected to pick up between 1979 and 1981, two years after the events of season one.

They will focus on the Atlanta child murders; a series of at least 28 killings of African-Americans.
