Screener Squad: Mindhunter – Season 2

Mindhunter Season 2 Review


The Behavioral Science Unit returns in the second season of Netflix’s hit series, Mindhunter. Taking place almost immediately after season one, we follow Holden (Jonathan Groff), Bill (Holt McCallany), Wendy (Anna Torv), and the rest of the team as they miraculously avert an internal investigation thanks to the arrival of a new director (Michael Cerveris). Now they are set to tackle a new set of interviews with murderers and psychopaths, including Son of Sam and Charles Manson. However, the biggest drive this season is their investigation into what would be known as the Atlanta Child Murders, which proves to be difficult with the Atlanta black community’s inherent distrust of the local police among many other complications. How will this affect the team individually? Justin, Lexie, Allen, and Marco have assembled into an interrogation room to share their thoughts on the highs and lows this season had to offer. Are their opinions conclusive? Tune in to find out in our in-depth but non-spoiler review.
