Critic Reviews for Mindhunter Season 2

All Critics (68) | Top Critics (21)

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

Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Aug 18, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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

Aug 17, 2019 | Full Review…

What Mindhunter does with the story is notable-for a series inspired by the memoirs of a profiler, it nevertheless makes the surprising choice to challenge the very foundations of psychological profiling.

Dec 31, 2020 | Full Review…

Chilling, intriguing and beyond compelling.

Jul 31, 2020 | Full Review…

If Season 1 of the Netflix series presented a sort of preamble to serial killer psychology, the new season expands on the mythology...If Season 1 was more theory, now it's more practice.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Mindhunter features some unsettlingly good portrayals of notorious killers...

May 22, 2020 | 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…

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

Dec 11, 2019 | 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.

    It is a very good serial on crime, so much fun to watch. I am very eagerly waiting for its third season.
  • Nov 20, 2020
    Serie muy buena, se consume a fuego lento. La 2da temporada bajo 1/2 estrella, puesto que las entrevistas de las primera fueron mas impactantes a mi gusto. Vistas 1
  • Nov 18, 2020
    Amazing. Literally went through one and a half seasons w/out checking on the actors and thinking who is that woman playing the psychiatrist? Faceplant when I looked it up and saw she is the actor from Finge. Whole main cast is superb as well as all the guests killers!
  • Oct 29, 2020
    Not as captivating as Season 1. Acting was great as usual but the season needs to spread itself across more characters.
  • Sep 14, 2020
    Really liked it, but definitely a little bit of a let down from season 1.
  • Aug 25, 2020
    Brilliant series. One of the best things in years.
  • Aug 14, 2020
    Same way as season one of the show i enjoyed watching that one as well.
  • Aug 09, 2020
    The acting is impeccable and yes I definitely don't regret watching this show.
  • Jul 30, 2020
    This is a great show with very high ratings yet Netflix has put it on hold? Great characters, especially Ed Kemper, but all of them are good, which is really important.The cast does a great job, and the stories are good and pretty dark, which I love. Sadly this seems to be another example of Netflix's programming going downhill in my eyes. It seems like they are trying to be like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox now instead of being the really good, new, and different thing that initially drew me in. Anyways, I'm pretty close to being done with them for good, the shows are just getting worse, and worse. Please keep this show going Netflix! It is one of your best.
