Mindhunter TV Show Details

5 Exciting Details About Netflix's New Serial Killer Thriller, Mindhunter

If you were to mix the dark, menacing vibes of House of Cards with FBI procedural Criminal Minds, your result might be something similar to Netflix's latest original show, Mindhunter. House of Cards executive producer David Fincher is heading up the show, which is based on the 1995 book by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker, Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit (which also inspired characters in the films The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon). From the major players who have signed on to the series to why you need to start obsessing over it immediately, check out everything we know about Mindhunter below.

The Story

Although the Mind Hunter book follows the accounts of real-life Special Agent John Douglas over the course of his 25-year career, the TV version of Mindhunter will focus on fictional FBI agents. Set in 1979, season one follows FBI Agents Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) as they interview convicted serial killers in order to help them solve current murders.

The Cast

Glee and Looking alum Groff will play one of the show's leads, FBI agent Holden Ford, opposite Sully actor McCallany as Holden's superior. Rounding out the cast are Fringe's Anna Torv, The Americans actor Cotter Smith, and Unless star Hannah Gross.

The Production Team

If you were hoping the creative forces behind Mindhunter had résumés packed with dark and twisted projects, you're in luck. Episode directors include creator Fincher (who's responsible for films like Gone Girl and Zodiac, FYI), as well as Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror) and Asif Kapadia (Amy). Charlize Theron is also on board as an executive producer, making this her second show at the streaming giant behind Girlboss.

The Premiere Date

The show hits Netflix on Oct. 13 (which is a Friday, FYI).
