Fear not, David Fincher fanatics, the “Mindhunter” interrogations will continue.

Netflix announced via Instagram and Twitter on Thursday that its critically-acclaimed crime drama has been renewed for a second season less than two months after it bowed on the streaming service.

The Joe Penhall-created series stars Jonathan Groff (“Looking”), Holt McCallany (“Sully”), Anna Torv (“Fringe”), Hannah Gross (“Unless”) and new kid on the block Cameron Britton, who took on the role of serial killer Ed Kemper to rave reviews.

All 10 episodes of the first season of “Mindhunter” premiered on Netflix on Oct. 13.

The series is executive produced by Fincher, along with Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron and Cean Chaffin.

News of the renewal shouldn’t come as much of a shock to fans, as back in October, Fincher was already talking about what he wanted to do with Season 2, before Netflix had formally announced the series had been picked up again.

“Next year we’re looking at the Atlanta child murders, so we’ll have a lot more African-American music which will be nice,” Fincher told Billboard the day after the series dropped, referencing the real-life events of 1979-81, in which 28 African-American children, teenagers and adults were killed.

No release date has been announced for the second season yet.
