All Critics (64) | Top Critics (14)

It's all very, very dark, which for me is very, very intriguing.

"Mindhunter" is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go round, even as it steers away from studying proven killers.

The long-awaited second season of David Fincher's Mindhunter affirms the program as Netflix's strongest drama.

If you are going to spend your weekend guiltily luxuriating in a show about the depths of human depravity, you might as well make it a stylish one.

Aug 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Freed from establishing the rules of its psychological game, Mindhunter proved smarter, looser, and more deeply unsettling [in season 2].

Dec 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The second season makes [its] point without ever ceding one ounce of the authenticity or humor that made it famous in the first place.

Dec 16, 2019 | Full Review…

As the BSU takes its business further into the wild and attempts to apply its logic to other cases, Season 2 still delivered plenty of killer soundbites and teased more cat-and-mouse games to come.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This season of Mindhunter gives us what we want, with our characters getting developed while offering thrilling scenes of tense conversations with killers.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Ford interviewing serial killers while Tench or others uneasily watch still has an incredibly high entertainment value, as Jonathan Groff excels once again at towing a very difficult line with his character.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

What's frustrating about Mindhunter season 2 is that it's just as good, if not better than, season 1, but that it feels both unfinished and unfulfilling.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The writing of the show may be a little unfocused this season, but formal prowess just about makes up for all the clunky plotting.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

An imposing and ominous second season. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Mindhunter: Season 2

    Absolutely brilliant series! I sincerely hope there's additional series'

    perfect, so intensse

    Although the plotting is pedestrian, since it's sticking close to the actual facts, and the acting is somewhat wooden, owing to the fact that the principals are federal cops--something that gives it a faint whiff of the old Dragnet series--I mean the original one--there's something strongly compelling here, something that you can't not watch. Although numerous mistakes are made in detail and dialog, the period-set piece captures much of the ambiance of the time. Like a lot of vehicles, though, they need to hire someone to read over a script and discover what was said in a given period and what was not.

    Season 2 continues the excellence of the show!! Thrilling. Chilling. Unsettling. Truly one the best things Netflix has ever produced.
  • Jan 19, 2020
    The narrator ruins it for me. Her voice seems superficial and phony.
  • Jan 18, 2020
    literally one of my favorite shows of all time. A gripping masterpiece

    Season 2 was a colossal disappointment. Hard to overstate how big a drop off the second season was. Where S1 was inventive and interesting, S2 was rote and boring, with a script lacking any energy. The plot went nowhere, with FBI agents dropping in and out of Atlanta with no effect on the events there.
  • Jan 09, 2020
    Very entertaining and enthralling, I could not get away from the TV after a couple of episodes.
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Season 2 was not the same show. Season 1 was primarily about the creation of serial killer profiling while the second season is primarily about internationality. Black people aren't treated as well as white people and lesbians aren't socially excepted and oh yeah, there's some serial killers... I really hope that these shows can stop with the inter sectional BS.

    Loved this season better than the first!
