WATCH: Netflix’s New Series ‘Mindhunter’ Takes You Inside the Minds of Serial Killers

Imagine what it must be like trying to track down and catch a serial killer.  Piecing together the right evidence and following the right path must be nearly impossible but, in Netflix’s new drama Mindhunter, two FBI agents played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany think they found the best way to solving future crimes – talking to convicted murderers.

From Seven and Zodiac director David Fincher, Mindhunter is based on Mark Olshaker’s and John E. Douglas’ novel Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.  Based on the official trailer below, this looks like the perfect bingable series for anyone who has loved Netflix’s true-crime documentaries.  Though this isn’t a true story, the series will explore the psyche of serial killers and looks like it will lead us down a rabbit hole of psychology and drama!

Check out the chilling trailer below:

Mindhunter features Jonathan Groff (Looking), Holt McCallanay (Sully), Anna Torv (Fringe) and Hannah Gross (Unless). The series is directed by David Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network, Zodiac), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?). Fincher, Joshua Donen (Gone Girl, The Quick and the Dead) Charlize Theron (Girlboss, Hatfields & McCoys) and Cean Chaffin (Gone Girl, Fight Club) are Executive Producers.
