He wanted, he got it. Earlier this year, David Fincher shared his thoughts on having his crime drama Mindhunter run for at least five seasons. Well, it seems like Netflix agrees with the notorious director as it announced the show's return with a cryptic Tweet.
We honestly can't wait to see what subjects agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench bring out in the second installment of this incredible series. The first season of Mindhunter is streaming now on Netflix so go watch it if you haven't already!

A few years after the launch of House of Cards, David Fincher's first collaboration with Netflix, the Hollywood veteran has returned with the equally thrilling Mindhunter.
And while the Underwoods have been on their reign of terror for five seasons now, it looks as though special agent Holden Ford could be sticking around for just as long – at least, that's what Fincher hopes.
Speaking to Screen Rant, actor Holt McCallany, who plays Bill Tench in the show, unveiled Fincher's plans for the series. He said:
"You know I’m in small, you know, supporting parts, peripheral parts. And so it was a big deal for me to be invited back by David in one of the leads.
Because you know I believe in his talent, you know, and I know that you know, he wants to do five years of this show. Five seasons of these characters and so I’m hopeful, you know I don’t take anything for granted."
What is sure is that the show, set in the 1970s (aka the decade of serial killers), has more than enough material to keep it going for that length of time. While Netflix hasn't officially ordered a second season for Mindhunter, David Fincher has already revealed his plans for season two.
