The first season of Mindhunter hasn't even premiered on Netflix yet and it's already been commissioned for a second series.

The chilling series hails from House of Cards' David Fincher and producer Charlize Theron, and is based on the true-crime book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit.

According to SpoilerTV, the second season is set to start production in May and has been pencilled in for a December completion date, but no premiere date has been confirmed yet.

Set in 1979, Hamilton and Glee's Jonathan Groff and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back's Holt McCallany are a pair of FBI agents who interview serial killers in hopes of understanding what ultimately motivates them to kill.

However, the trouble is that their bosses at the FBI are starting to wonder if the agents are getting a little too close to their subjects as they investigate some of the most grisly cases in the Bureau's history.

Adapting the actual Mind Hunter book is Joe Penhall, the acclaimed playwright who previously brought Cormac McCarthy's influential post-apocalyptic novel The Road to the big screen.

The series is set to hit Netflix in October, so we have pretty high hopes for it if it has already nabbed a second season – and going by the first suitably chilling teaser trailer, they're right to be impressed too.
