Mindhunter – Netflix

Mindhunter is making its return for its second season in August 2019 on Netflix. The long-anticipated return of the Netflix crime series release date got dropped this week in an interview with Charlize Theron who serves as the executive producer for the show.

As you may know, Mindhunter was one of the biggest Netflix Original releases of 2017. The first season dropped on October 13th, 2017 and it’s been an excruciating wait ever since for a new season. Quite often we see Netflix Originals taking much longer than the traditional yearly release schedule most are accustomed to with cable TV.

In case you’re not familiar with the show, it’s an absolute must-watch on Netflix right now. The series is set in the late ’70s and is about the early days of criminal psychology with FBI agents looking into various cases of serial killers.

The show was renewed almost instantly after its release with a full season 2 renewal for Mindhunter being announced in November 2017.

When will Mindhunter season 2 be on Netflix?

This week Charlize Theron who is one of the executive producers for the show was on Howard Stern on SiriusXM to talk about her new romantic comedy with Seth Rogan due out in cinemas soon.

During the interview, they crossed onto Mindhunter and began singing the series praises. Charlize then let slip that “season 2 is coming in August,” to which Howard said he didn’t know that. Neither did we!

Although no specific date as given, a broad August 2019 release window was applied. There are five Fridays throughout August which Netflix Originals traditionally release on but we can’t guess exactly when it’ll drop just yet. As always, it’ll be available at 12 AM PST when it does eventually drop with all episodes.

We’ve had a few snippets of information come through regarding Mindhunter season 2 on Netflix such as its shorter runtime this season and the time jump the story will take.

As of right now, Mindhunter is the only title we’re aware of releasing in August 2019. The month before it is shaping up to big a huge month for new shows with Stranger Things season 3 releasing as well as Money Heist season 3.
